George
is a relatively large town is set in a broad valley some 10km inland from the ocean at the western end of the Garden Route in the Western Cape of South Africa.

In 1877 Anthony Trollope described the town as the 'prettiest village on the face of the earth'. Unfortunately these days the magnificent indigenous forests that once surrounded the town have virtually all been torn down and relatively little of that old world charm remains in the town itself. But George is by no means an unpleasant locale and it remains a decent place to live.

Golfers are particularly well catered for, with several excellent courses in the vicinity, most notably the very well known Fancourt, which form the mainstay of the local tourist economy these days.

But for the majority of our non-golfing guests, George has little to offer and is usually either bypassed to the main N2 highway or cut through when heading inland to the Karoo town of Oudtshoorn.


Fairview Homestead ... is a pleasant guesthouse in the town, centred on an old Georgian house.
