Tulbagh is a charming, historic town with a wealth of Cape Dutch architecture. Set in a beautiful landscape, it is not only famous for its heritage but also for its magnificent country living. Nature has graced this valley with bountiful supplies of water, wild flowers, fertile soil and plenty of sunshine, making an ideal environment for top class vineyards, orchards, olive groves, wheat farming and holidaying.
Enjoy the hospitality of the valley in accommodation to suit you and your family. In winter experience crisp, clear days, cold nights, mountain peaks topped with snow and the beauty of the valley surrounding you. Cosy restaurants offer a wide range of cuisine together with warming sherries and log fires. Summers are hot and dry, ideal conditions for the grape harvest resulting in the excellent wines produced locally. Laze at a sparkling poolside, sipping an ice cold glass of Tulbagh's best.
There is so much beauty on Tulbagh's doorstep - drive through magnificent Cape Fold mountain passes to enjoy vistas unparalleled in the Boland. Take a leisure stroll down memory lane to experience our rich South African heritage in the various museums and monuments. Sample chocolates and cheese; have shoes custom-made; buy the best quality dried fruit, honey, olive oil and homemade preserves. Hike up into the mountains to view the rare Disa, catch a fish in a tranquil dam reflecting the mountains, ride a horse in the orchards.
The town also makes a wonderful springboard for exploring not only the immediate surrounds but the valleys adjacent. It is a favourite stopover for many upcountry and international visitors en route to Cape Town, the West Coast or the glories of the Namaqualand spring flowers.
