Our area and Knysna

Vue Grande is ideally located on the picturesque and secure Leisure Isle in Knysna, personally managed by the residents themselves - who have formed an association called Leisure Island Residents Association - see link below. Leisure Isle is surrounded on all sides by the waters of the tidal Knysna estuary, which is ringed by a chain of hills and is linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway. It is a haven of peace and tranquility, where life is enjoyed at a leisurely pace.

The beautiful town of Knysna is situated a mere 73kms from the George airport and located within 157 000 hectares of the proclaimed Garden Route National Park. It is nestled between the shores of the pristine Knysna estuary, Indian Ocean and thousands of hectares of beautiful indigenous forest, home to a myriad of wild- and birdlife as well as the famed Cape fynbos.

Not only has Knysna become synonymous with its magnificent oysters, but visitors can explore its natural beauty through its many mountain biking / hiking trails, whale watching and boating charters.

Knysna has further become a sought after golfing destination. The town offers three magnificent golf courses which merge with the town's natural beauty. Simola Golf Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus (The Golden Bear), Pezula Champion Golf Course and Knysna Golf Course all lie within 6kms of the town's centre.

For the past five years, Knysna has played host to the ever popular Knysna Speed Festival and recently hosted the International bi-ennial MG Indaba 2014. These events, together with the abundant beautiful country roads, have attracted many car enthusiasts to the town. Knysna is now fast becoming an International Classic Car destination.
