Napier Retirement Village

Country Living in the heart of the Overberg

Napier Retirement Village is situated in the charming historical village of Napier which lies beneath the Soetmuisberg mountain range, less than two hours scenic drive from Cape Town. Tucked into a green valley, this typical Overberg country town full of character and old-world charm, offers true peace and tranquility in a unique rural setting, and is a safe-haven from the crime and grime of city life.


Situated on the top of a hill overlooking grazing livestock on open fields of barley and wheat the ‘Ou Skool’ (“Old School”) is an impressive old building with wooden floors, high ceilings and a rich history. It has been converted and lovingly restored to form the nucleus around which the Napier Retirement Village has been designed.

With breathtaking country views of wide, open spaces, undulating farmlands and hills, residents can relax in the comfort of complete security. And aside from the delightful array of farm stalls, shops and restaurants in Napier, the area boasts a wealth of natural attractions:

  • Africa’s southernmost tip at Cape L’Agulhas is a mere 30-minute drive away
  • Arniston, the picturesque 200-year old fishing village is also close by
  • Hermanus’ expansive beaches and popular shopping centres are just an hour’s drive away
  • The De Hoop Coastal Nature Reserve is within easy driving distance
  • The small missionary village of Elim, declared a national monument, is also easily accessible


There are 25 cottages, seven terraced houses, 25 assisted living units and 19 health care beds.


Designed in the Cape vernacular architecture in response to the ‘Ou Skool’ building, there is a choice of one or two bedroom units within a carefully landscaped garden setting. With their thick walls, tapered window reveals, exposed rafters, terraces and courtyard gardens with ‘werf mure’, the cottages offer charm and relaxed country living.


Once the ‘Ou Skool’s’ woodwork building, this wing has been converted to provide three 2-bedroom units and three 1-bedroom units. Each terraced house has its own terrace with north facing country views and they provide compact, convenient living at affordable prices.


Once the ‘Ou Skool’s’ classroom block, a new wing has been added which encloses a courtyard garden around which 25 assisted living units are positioned. With close proximity to the health care facility and nursing assistance, and with their own library, living and dining room, these units provide a safe haven with inward living for those wanting a more manageable environment.


The ‘Ou Skool saal’ (hall) has been beautifully renovated and converted into the Club House. Napier Retirement Village life revolves around the Club House where residents gather for meals in a beautifully appointed Victorian dining room which opens out on to a large covered terrace with breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside.

The clubhouse includes the following communal facilities:

  • two lounges
  • television
  • library
  • bridge tables
  • internet stations
  • kitchen
  • hairdresser
  • solar heated swimming pool
  • small exercise room


A professionally managed Health Care Centre offers a full range of nursing services covering a wide range of needs. All units will have panic buttons connected to the nurses’ station.

Four levels of health care will be available:


24 hour nurse call availability.


This includes 24hr nurse call availability, administration of medicines and general monitoring.


Includes 24hr nurse call availability, administration of medicines, daily carer assistance, daily visits by nursing personnel and general monitoring.


Residents will be accommodated in the health care centre where they will receive administration of medicines, daily carer assistance, daily visits by nursing personnel and a higher level of general monitoring. This facility will also be available for non residents and residents who may require short term recovery and require more focused assistance for a period of time.
