DISCOVER BEAUTY IN THE HEART OF THE CAPE WINELANDS
The historic towns, Paarl and Wellington, lie along the corridor of The Berg River, one of the Cape’s main rivers. The towns are approximately 45-minutes’ drive from Cape Town.
The picturesque beauty of both Paarl and Wellington compels visitors to explore the many scenic routes in the valley and surrounding mountains.
Visit the ‘pearl’ of the Cape Winelands, Paarl and its Wine Route – a town that takes its name from the huge granite outcrop that stands proudly on the crest of Paarl Mountain The birth of Afrikaans as the World’s youngest language is celebrated by the Afrikaans Language Monument that stands aside the southern slopes of Paarl Mountain.
Just outside Paarl is the Drakenstein Prison, where Nelson Mandela spent his last years in captivity and where he completed his long walk to freedom. The town has many fine examples of Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Cape Dutch buildings that compete for space with the wide variety of fine restaurants and coffee shops spread out along the twelve- kilometre-long Main Street.
Wellington was founded in 1840 and was named after the Duke of Wellington. The Wellington region is renowned for its beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads and gardens.
The historic Bain’s Kloof Pass, with its unsurpassed vistas, indigenous flora and fauna and crystal-clear rock pools is the perfect spot for hikers, while closer to town wine-walks and horse-trails through farmland and fynbos can be enjoyed.
Enjoy true country hospitality, award winning wines and tranquil stay-overs to suit a variety of amenities and budgets.
You can revel in beautiful fynbos-rich walks and hiking trails, superb mountain biking trails or take a relaxing drive through the countryside to enjoy the spectacular scenery and a leisurely lunch washed down with some of the region’s award-winning WINES.
