All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveller is unaware. - Martin Buber

Travelling to a new town is always exciting. New attractions to discover, new landscapes to explore, more adventures to experience. Rich in all these features is the beautiful towns of the Overberg region of the Western Cape. Each with its own unique attractions like cerulean oceans, lush nature reserves and exhilarating activities, the Overberg towns hold a wealth of interesting things to make any getaway worthwhile.

One of these towns is found in the area fondly known as the fruitful valley of the Overberg, Villiersdorp. The blooming little town is well-known for its thriving agricultural sector, the town also holds its own unique attractions. Here are some of the curious destinations you might want to visit when visiting Villiersdorp:

Aphrodisiac Shack

Born out of a passion for food and the art of charcuterie, the Aphrodisiac Shack was established in Villiersdorp. Bringing a unique product to South Africa, the welcoming shop offers a range of speciality smoked products to be enjoyed on the premises or taken home to be enjoyed later. The Smokehouse is also a lovely picnic, wedding and function venue, and also offers culinary and bus tours. Stop by for a unique taste of Villiersdorp.
