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.
Restaurants in the Tulbagh Valley.
Tulbagh has numerous restaurants situated in the village or on a wine estate that cater to every pocket and taste. A seasonal ambience is provided by cozy log fires burning or weather permitting sit on sun dappled patios and soak up the winter sun. The menus are a celebration of South African flavours, traditional “boerekos” or global cuisine – a fusion of flavours, vegan and vegetarian meals, light lunches, cheese platters and treats for the kiddies. Produce is sourced locally and be sure to enjoy the award winning wines from The Tulbagh Wine Route with your meals.
