Depart from Cape Town on a 90 minute journey to Tulbagh, a picturesque town surrounded by mountain ranges that will take your breath away and filled with a rich history recounted through its architectural heritage. Upon arrival, settle into your hotel where old-world charm is perfectly complemented by modern comforts. Take a stroll along the historic Church Street, revel in the sight of mesmerising houses depicting Cape Dutch, Victorian and Edwardian architecture and quaint museums narrating the history of the Tulbagh valley. Overnight at The Tulbagh Boutique Heritage Hotel.
Enjoy a memorable day in the valley of abundance, starting with an adventurous zipline outing in the mountains of Ceres. Knee-buckling at first – but as you take your first zip through the mountainous terrain with jaw-dropping views below you, you realise what an exciting and worthwhile experience this is! Then for something a little more relaxing, head for a tasting of award-winning wines accompanied by a delectable picnic lunch next to the Saronsberg Wine Cellar dam. This beautifully designed cellar is home to carefully selected art pieces put on display throughout the grounds, tasting room and art gallery. Overnight at The Tulbagh Boutique Heritage Hotel. [B]
After breakfast, head towards the West Coast to the charming fishing village of Paternoster. As you enter the little town, make a stop at the “Oep ve Koep” convenience store where you will find traditional South African treats, such as “beskuit” and “loslekkers”. Your hotel—Abalone House—is characterised by its indulgence in rich colours and textures. If you visit the West Coast on a windy winter’s day, a crackling fire and plentiful books and board games will make you feel relaxed and at home in an old beach house trimmed with luxury. For dinner, the famous Reuben’s restaurant is sure to tantalise the palate. Overnight at Abalone House & Spa. [B]
This is a day to enjoy at leisure. Consider a spa treatment at the Healing Earth Spa at Abalone House, or take a long stroll on the beach whilst watching colourful fishing boats making their way back to shore. Sit in the Abalone House lounge with a long coffee and a good book – this might be one of the most relaxing days you’ve had in a long time! Overnight at Abalone House & Spa. [B]
After breakfast, take a leisurely drive back to Cape Town. During the flower season, take a small detour through the West Coast National Park for a spectacular multi-coloured display of flowers. Around August and September is flower season and it is really worth the stop-over here to admire this floral display that impresses nearly every single year.
