Villiersdorp is a tranquil village graced by oak trees and surrounded by fruit and wine orchards. Villiersdorp is the center of
a prosperous grape-growing region, which also produces apples, onions, peaches and apricots.

The Theewaterskloof Dam is a characteristic feature of Villiersdorp. The dam, which derives its name from the farm
on which the wall is situated, is the seventh largest artifical water reservoir in South Africa. Its full supply capacity is
about one-tenth of that of the Hendrik Verwoerd Dam, which is the largest impoundment in South Africa.

The town of Villiersdorp was named after Pieter de Villiers, a local farmer who established the town in 1843.

The charming and picturesque Villiersdorp is worth a visit. It has much to offer visitors seeking outdoor adventure and
relaxation in a beautiful country town.
