Small towns are special in many ways, from lack of congestion to country cool, from old buildings full of character to friendly people with time to chat. I’ve chosen 20 of my favourite small towns for weekend getaways from Cape Town. Read on to see if I’ve included your favourite.
I’ve arranged the towns alphabetically in groups so that I don’t have the impossible task of ranking them. How can you say one town is ‘better’ than another when they’re so different, when each has its own particular charm?
