The charm of the Karoo is the slow pace of life and the melting pot of people who find themselves thrown together. This mellow mix of artists, farmers, hippies, and artisans means that each small town has something different to offer. Picture perfect Montagu is surrounded by  fruit farms and dotted with Victorian architecture and tree-lined streets. It is home to hot springs, rock climbing, and great wines. Nestled in the foothills of the langeberge, cozy Barrydale is a haven for artists, good food, and hikers. Further afield in Prince Albert, you can explore an historic watermill, take in a show at the art deco styled showroom, or wander out in the Karoo at night to do a little stargazing.
