Organise a romantic retreat to Paarl to put some passion back into your life this summer.  Spoil your loved one with a laidback escape to this historic town, a mere hour’s drive from Cape Town and enjoy special spoils ranging from spa treatments to picnics and unique dining experiences.

Soak up the rich culture of the region, while enjoying an elegant picnic on the sprawling lawns in front of the manor house at Nederburg. Attention to detail and the magnificent views make this picnic for two something to remember.

Add the allure of yesteryear with a visit to the new cocktail bar at the exquisite Grande Roche Hotel.  Brandies are showcased in scintillating ways to mark the origin of this unique liquor that has been distilled in Paarl for centuries. The bar epitomises old-school glamour with a print of the enigmatic Mona Lisa smiling down over the polished brass counters.

Be rejuvenated at the luxurious Cascade Manor which offers a spectacular waterfall, a heavenly spa for pampering yourself and your partner and deluxe accommodation.  Enjoy an invigorating couple’s massage in the spa boma set next to the waterfall for the ultimate indulgence.  Alternatively, try the Garden Spa at Babylonstoren set in a bamboo pavilion in the heart of the lush gardens.

Unique dining experiences each add a distinctive atmosphere to your Paarl romantic retreat.  At Noop, guests are welcomed by centuries’ old oak trees and treated like family by the owners.   The homely atmosphere of this heritage building and fantastic food create the ideal setting.  The Polo Club Restaurant and Black Bar at Val de Vie Estate offer elegance and serenity with striking views of the pristine polo fields and surrounding mountain ranges.

The trendy La Paris Bistro presents wholesome and authentic fresh food sourced locally and responsibly, to be savoured in the subtle and tranquil surroundings, while time slips by almost unnoticed.  Go back in time at the beautifully renovated blacksmith’s cottages on Pearl Mountain, which now houses the cosy Blacksmith’s Restaurant.  The restaurant serves a selection of Pearl Mountain and locally sourced wines with a Mediterranean-inspired menu as well as decadent pizzas from their wood-fired pizza oven. Many of the original features of the cottages have been repurposed in the restaurant to create space for romance to blossom.
