McGregor Valley

The Beauty of McGregor Valley

McGregor is a small village in the mountains of the Western Cape, South Africa. It is roughly 150 km east of Cape Town and was one of our stops along our wine route adventure. McGregor is a unique, eccentric village away from the crowds where you can unwind, step back in time and just relax. The village is home to a vibrant community of artists and there are a couple of top-class galleries to choose out of. I will have to return again soon to visit all the galleries as I only had the chance to explore two or three galleries while we were here.

After spending the day with my parents looking at houses and properties for sale in the area we had a very relaxing evening at the Lord’s Guest house. The lush, abundant McGregor Valley is part of the Breede River Valley and is defined by its absolute beauty.

This is the perfect place to relax with a book

The Lord’s Guest house, was once a family-owned fruit farm, but is now managed by a group of passionate winos, who have made it their goal to produce superlative wines. Apart from its wines this guest house offers some of the most beautiful views of the McGregor Valley and the blue mountains beyond. The indigenous splendour is breath-taking with it’s rich in intriguing birdlife and beautiful vegetation.

Inspired by Scottish passion and the rough natural geometry of the rock of which it is built, each stone hand-selected and each item meticulously chosen, the result is a luxurious combination of age old craftsmanship and elegant convenience. The guest house takes one back to a time of extravagant luxury and exemplary refinement. With 4 star management and exquisite style I felt like royalty during our short stay.

What an amazing view!!

At breakfast we enjoyed views of the mountains at the stunning sun terrace of the Lady Restaurant before we continued with our adventure.
