A creative shopping experience built around a 19th Century trading store. It is a landmark destination in the Garden Route with shops, studios, and workshops showcasing the extraordinary and inspiring connection between ancient crafts, innovative small-scale manufacturing and contemporary design. The Village is an unexpected and fascinating architectural mix of wonderful gardens and a unique group of individual creators.
