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!

Historic Tulbagh

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.

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.

Spend a weekend in Tulbagh

By: Pasqua Heard

Do you want an idyllic escape from the city, but only have a weekend to work with? Based on a recent visit, I recommend Schalkenbosch Wine Estate in Tulbagh, as it's only 1.5 hours from Cape Town and will exceed your expectations if you're looking for some peace and quiet.

You’ll feel enveloped in a storybook setting with the towering Witzenberg mountain range drawing closer and the bright yellow canola fields swaying in the wind as you drive up a dirt track to the estate. Catherine, one of the hosts who resides on the estate, along with her four friendly dogs will greet you warmly at the gate and hand over the keys to your self-catering cottage.

Quintestial Tulbagh...

Three kilometres outside Tulbagh along the Winterhoek road on a rise stands the majestic De Oude Drostdy, designed by French-born architect Louis Michel Thibault.  Gracious in proportions and flanked by oak trees and iceberg roses, it welcomes with a wide flight of stairs into formal rooms featuring high, yellowwood ceilings and flaunts with a fabulous collection of art and antiques. It is one of five museums in Tulbagh – the others being De Oude Kerk, the Pioneer House, a Victorian period house and the Earthquake museum – one might even say it is the jewel in our crown of heritage buildings.
