PAARL - CAPE WINELANDS SELF-CATERING COTTAGES & HOMES, WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA

Top
Less than an hour north of Cape Town in the Winelands, Paarl is a beautiful old town dominated by a huge granite pluton that, after rain, gleams like a pearl, and from which the town gets its name. (The Dutch word for pearl is paarl.) Paarl has one of the longest main roads in the country – at about 11km – and it’s lined with some lovely old buildings.  For a bit of a historical flashback you could visit the Afrikaans Language Museum or even drive up to the Afrikaans Language Monument – a monstrous hilltop structure that’s visible for miles. It’s an interesting place to visit and, whatever you think of the motivation of its construction, there’s a lovely view from up there.  But you’d be more likely to visit Paarl for wine.

There are numerous lovely wineries, some of which also make home made cheeses and liqueur brandy. Olive farms produce olive oil and various varieties of bottled olives and Paarl is filled with lovely restaurants.  For the more active, there is an excellent paragliding launch site off Paarl Rock, which also offers excellent granite climbing and some fun rambles. You could ride up the back of Paarl Mountain, do a wine tasting horse trail, or even trundle through the vineyards in a horse-drawn cart. In summer there are early morning hot air balloon flights.

STELLENBOSCH WINELANDS SELF-CATERING COTTAGES & VILLAS, SOUTH AFRICA

Top
Stellenbosch is South Africa’s second oldest town, after Cape Town and is the sentimental heart of the Winelands. Lined with shady oaks and beautiful gabled, white-washed buildings the streets of Stellenbosch still have small irrigation channels on either side of the older roads. In the past, these were used to water gardens, as each householder had a time slot in which to divert the town’s irrigation into their plot.  It is very cultural and somewhat venerable town, while also displaying a decidedly young and vibrant air. There are some interesting museums and many of the buildings, including some of the hotels and restaurants, are national monuments and deserve a second look. There is good mountain biking just outside the town, and there are golf courses aplenty, but Stellenbosch is really all about wine.

View map of Stellenbosch
The town is virtually surrounded by fabulous cellars where you can do a tasting, join a cellar tour, stock up your own personal cellar, and perhaps enjoy a lovely leisurely lunch in the shade of some typical Stellenbosch oaks. Some of the wine farms have become multi-purpose resorts with theatres, restaurants, equestrian centres and much much more.  Stellenbosch is close to Cape Town so it can be visited on a day trip, or you could do a day trip to Cape Town or the Overberg from Stellenbosch. The nearest beach is at Strand.  More accommodation options in Stellenbosch.

WELLINGTON SELF-CATERING COTTAGES & HOMES, SOUTH AFRICA

Top
Wellington is a town in the Western Cape Winelands just to the north of Paarl, in South Africa with a population of approximately 55 000. Wellington's economy is centered around the wine and brandy industry. With a picturesque environment and numerous award winning wineries, Wellington's tourism industry has started to blossom. The town is located 75km north-east of Cape Town, reached by the N1 motorway and R44 highway. The town is at the base of one of the oldest mountain passes in the country, Bain's Kloof Pass, built by master road-builder Andrew Geddes Bain.

The town is the home of the Boland Rugby Union and the professional rugby team the Boland Kavaliers. The town is also an academic centre, with Huguenot College, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Bible Media and Huguenot High School amongst others. Up to 2003, the residents of Wellington, and those unfortunate to be passing by on a day when the wind blew the wrong way, knew full well that another industry for which Wellington is famous is the leatherworks, responsible for Wellington's other name, "Smellington". This leatherworks produces some of the finest leathers in the country numbering BMW amongst others as customers.  The beauty of the area, however, far outweighs the temporary discomfort that was experienced when passing the leather factory. The pass up to Bains Kloof winds thru pine tree plantations, to the summit where on a clear day you can see forever (where forever consists of the swartland to the right, home of the vast wheat fields, the cape flats and Cape Town to the right, and the sun glimmering on the sea.
