Spring Time in Bonnievale Popular Sections

When you go outside, you can smell spring time in the air.  The apricot trees are blooming, butterflies flutter by, the vineyards start to awake and the river is flowing with fish jumping in the streams.

I decided to write about Bonnievale in our first newsletter.  Bonnievale is my hometown and I would like to share the beauty with each and every one travelling on Route 62.

Bonnievale is situated approximately 200km from Cape Town, an easy drive for a weekend getaway.  With the Langeberg Mountain range on the one side and the Riviersonderend Mountain range on the other, Bonnievale is one of the most beautiful towns in the Western Cape.  Tourists often miss the town becauce it requires a short detour off Route 62, but it's well worth the effort whether from Robertson along the R317 or from Swellendam and Ashton along the R60.

While in Bonnievale, you can stock up on wine, cheese, fresh produce and even delicious tender steaks and wors.  You can bring the whole family with; there is something to do for everyone!  The kids can spend the day at Amanzi Farm Visits, mom and dad can do some wine tasting at the various wine cellars, grandma can have cake and tea at one of the coffee shops and grandpa can bring his fishing rod and relax on the banks of the Breede River while doing some bird watching.  For the more adventurous there is canoeing, 4 x 4 trails, a trip on the Breede River Goose, mountain biking and lots more... read more
