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.

 There is something so deeply relaxing about staying on a farm. You never have to move too fast along the dirt roads, you can walk slowly and allow your hands and eyes to skim over the vineyards as you breathe in the fresh air. Vindoux is the type of place you don’t really have to leave if you don’t want to. We played on the grass with Caleb, took him on walks in the carrier past the tree houses and through the small patches of vineyards.

We sat on the wooden lookout deck which peaked out over the area where the zebra, wildebeest and springbok munched grass. Caught somewhere between a game reserve and wine farm, we could slowly exhale and forget that we ever lived in a city. Just next door we could admire the brown cows grazing in the mild sun.

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.
