Welcome to our Valley of Abundance...
Discover the rural village of Tulbagh nestling in its bowl of magnificent mountains and a serene, unspoiled valley. In itself a desirable destination for all seasons and many reasons, the historic town also provides an excellent base from which to explore the Cape Winelands and surrounding areas. Only a 90-minute scenic drive from Cape Town, getting away has never been so easy nor so much fun!
Travel back in time over 300 years... Tulbagh is the fourth oldest town in South Africa (after Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Swellendam) dating back to the early 1700s. Charming Church Street boasts the largest number of Cape Dutch, Edwardian and Victorian provincial heritage sites in one street in South Africa, all lovingly restored post the devastating earthquake of 1969.
Steeped in history and characteristically Cape-Dutch, Tulbagh yet offers all the modern-day comforts the discerning traveler might wish for. Nature enthusiasts, adrenalin junkies, wine lovers, families and those simply seeking peace and tranquility are all catered for.
Farm Stays in the Valley
Why not “take a break from reality” and spend some quality time with your family on a working farm. Beautiful in every season of the year. Self-catering cottages are affordable and have breathtaking mountain views. The children can help feed the farm animals. Fish in the farm dams – or bring the mountain bikes along and explore the Valley by bike, enjoy farm walks through pristine fynbos and renosterbos. Have relaxing sundowners at sunset and marvel at the blushing pink colour of the mountains, barbeque under a crystalline starscape and listen to the song of cicadas at night. There are various activities on offer in the Valley and a visit to our museums and wine estates are a must.
