The town of McGregor lies on Route 62, just 10 minutes from Robertson and less than 2 hours' drive from Cape Town. Part of the Robertson Wine Route and host to an annual food and wine festival, McGregor is a wonderful village to visit and remain in to sample wines. McGregor borders on the little Karoo and the climate, except in February when it can get very hot, is lovely - especially in winter.
McGregor is recognised as a sacred site as converging ley lines create a high level of natural energy in the town. As such, the town attracts a number of artists, craftsmen and healers to its quaint, whitewashed cottage lined streets. There is little pollution and the skies at night are filled with stars. An aesthetics committee has drawn up a series of guidelines for anyone building in McGregor, to maintain the historic building style.
The village lies in a valley surrounded by beautiful, rolling hills and there a number of walks and hikes to keep one busy.
