The Village

For many years St Francis was a holiday resort, with only a handful of permanent residents. If they needed anything, the closest shops were in Humansdorp, 25 km away. Slowly little businesses started to open to meet their needs, a cafe, a hardware, and in the last decade it has suddenly grown into a self sustaining community with many permanent residents, earning a living with businesses which serve the rest of the community.
This is the main shopping centre in the village. It used to stand alone next to the golf course, but is now surrounded by more and more development and everywhere you look, you seem to see more complexes going up. There is now a wide choice of places to eat out, as well as shops catering for most needs, even some galleries and interior design places.
