More About


The scenic beauty of Paarl, the ‘pearl’ of the Cape Winelands, compels visitors to explore the many scenic routes in the valley and the surrounding mountains. A visit to the Cape Winelands is not complete if you do not include the third-oldest town dating back to 1687. 

Paarl is a town that takes its name from the huge granite outcrop that stands proudly on the crest of Paarl Mountain. Paarl Mountain’s 500-million-year-old domes are one of the world’s largest granite outcrops and often compared to the towering Ayers Rock in Australia.

The town is a mere 45-minutes’ drive from Cape Town.
