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.

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.

Christmas in Winter Festival

Christmas once again comes early this year as Tulbagh dons its winter cape in the month of June and welcomes the rest of the country to join them for a weekend extravaganza of wonderful winter warmers.

Marvel at the array of Christmas trimmings and glittering lights, take a trip with Father Christmas down historic Church Street and help him hand out treats to the many bright-eyed children, browse through the arts, crafts, photographic exhibitions, art galleries and quaint shops.  You’re bound to find something to start filling the Christmas stockings with.  Enjoy cheese, Belgian chocolate and olive tastings or join in the chilli eating and various other competitions happening. Jumping castles, face painting, pony rides, tractor trips are just some of the activities that will keep the little ones entertained. Enjoy a scenic outride on horseback and experience the beauty and tranquillity of nature or go on a Zipslide adventure further down the Valley. Be sure to enter the scenic trail run.

A trip to the Tulbagh valley would be incomplete without a visit to our stunning wine estates.  Join the winemakers and their staff for wine tastings, cellar tours and a variety of activities which will be on offer.

Enticing aromas will send you in search of our gastronomic wonders.  Join us for a cup of eggnog or a glass of glühwein to warm the cockles, enjoy roaring log fires, glittering Christmas trees, winter warmer lunches and traditional Christmas fare and dinners at our world-class restaurants and coffee shops.  If you need to catch up on that all important sports score, don’t fear, our Sports Bars are quite near!
