Why live in McGregor

What does McGregor offer me

Situated under 2 hours from Cape Town, 45 minutes from Worcester, and fifteen minutes from Robertson in the beautiful Breede River Valley of Wine and Roses in the Western Cape, McGregor is the perfect place to own a a weekend getaway cottage, a holiday  home or a permanent residence away from the noise, stress, crime and pollution of city living.

McGregor is home to artists & therapists, retirees and business people, all of whom flourish in this tranquil country village. The air in McGregor is like crystal, and several of us have made quite miraculous recoveries from various ailments and  illnesses in the healthy, pollution and stress free environment of McGregor.

McGregor offers a way of life no longer found in the cities and suburbs - it's almost like stepping back in time to a gentler place.

 


 

 

Retiring or Semi-retiring

For the retired person, McGregor offers value for money and the cost of living is considerably lower than in the cities, and it is a return to a simpler way of life in a friendly village where friends and neighbours "look out for each other". Robertson is home to good doctors, dentists and pysiotherapists and Worcester has a modern, well equipped Provincial Hospital & Medi-Clinic which house several excellent physicians - and there's nothing like a country doctor who even knows your name!

Holiday Homes

For the Weekender escaping city life for a few days each week or month, McGregor is a pleasant drive on a good road under 2 hours from the city of Cape Town, and is the calm in a storm offering a "recharge" and a few days to recuperate before once again facing the stresses of city life.

Having a holiday home in McGregor is an oasis in the desert, an opportunity to escape to a peaceful way of life whenever posssible

Business People

For business people, McGregor is the best of both worlds! In this modern global village McGregor is linked via telephone, cellphone and has TELKOM ADSL broadband internet & Breedenet, is 15 minutes from Robertson and three quarters of an hour from Worcester as well as being close enough to Cape Town to commute when necessary.

 

Investment

From an investment perspective, McGregor has done very well in the 4 years we have lived here, and - unlike Cape Town & many other parts of the country - property has not only retained its value but significantly appreciated.
