New visitors always ask, "What is there to do in McGregor?" - Caught by surprise, the locals will look a bit confused and after a while say "Enjoy the quiet, that's why we love it!"

The truth is, the whole of the Breede River valley has many places to visit, but if it's relaxation, good living, food and wine you are after, McGregor is the perfect place to forget city cares, change gear, just live, enjoy and connect with friends.



McGregor does however offer a variety of activities for the visitor to explore, from walking/hiking trails, the most spectacular being the Boesmanskloof trail from McGregor to Greyton,  mountain biking, bird watching at hides in Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve, to enjoyable meals and a chat at one of our coffee shops or restaurants. There is the Donkey Sanctuary and 4x4 trails to enjoy or stay in town and relax with an aromatherapy massage or Reiki session. Regular movies are shown at Temenos and Wahnfried for movie and opera lovers.


The village has a quaint Saturday Morning Market where you may purchase a wide variety of home made jams, chutneys, fresh organic vegetables, as well as many other products. Browse McGregor Properties for sale.

Don't miss out on our
regional and village food and wine festivals.

We have just a few good quality shops, where you may browse through a variety of goods. There is also a Deli - not to be missed for quality provisions to eat, as the nearest fresh food supermarket is 20km away. You can try tastings of Grappa at the local distillery, or find our wineries interesting. There is olive tasting at Rhebokskraal and many places to enjoy a good meal. You must visit our local wood fired pottery. Or why not book with one of the many therapists?
