The tiny agricultural village of Caledon is situated amongst the rolling wheat, barley and golden canola fields that blanket the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains. Renowned for its iron-rich hot springs, Caledon is the bustling capital centre of the Overberg region.
Situated on the N2, the main coastal highway which links the south of the country with the north via the vibrant Garden Route; Caledon is only one and a half hours drive from South Africa’s popular tourist city of Cape Town.
As a quintessential country ‘dorp’, Caledon is a popular week-end getaway for busy city folk and the preferred destination for those seeking quiet, secure country living.
Although Caledon is located inland, there are countless beaches within close proximity of the spa hamlet, which doubles as a fashionable outdoor haven. Hiking, horse riding, fishing, mountain biking, golf and 4x4 trails are amongst the activities on offer, all of which take place in the fresh air and incomparable beauty of this quaint and picturesque Overberg village.
