There is no better time to visit the pretty Cape Winelands town of Paarl than during the cold winter months.  From winter-warming menus to wine tastings, incredible winter offers and welcoming smiles, pencil Paarl in on your list of things to do this winter.

 

Paarl is known as the Pearl of the Winelands for valid reasons and visitors can enjoy the incredible scenery and great tourism offerings by day and cozy up in front of a fire with a glass of award-winning wine at any of the fabulous accommodation facilities.

Several restaurants are offering special winter menus with real comfort food such as curries, slow-cooked oxtail and nourishing soups.  Tasting spectacular Paarl red wines at various tasting rooms in the region is a sure cure for the winter blues. Visit Nederburg’s beautifully revamped restaurant, The Manor, in Paarl, where the emphasis is on authentic, nostalgic food experiences featuring simple yet hearty dishes with a touch of heritage.

For tastings of a different kind, try the brandy tasting at the KWV Emporium, another legendary local brand.  This tasting takes visitors on a journey of discovery through the House of Fire to celebrate this renowned South African drink.

Paarl has a thriving coffee shop culture with loads of shops lining the historic Main Road or located on nearby wine farms.  Kikka, Bean in Love, Back’s Restaurant and Deli, Knus Karoo Kombuis and La Paris Bistro are some of the spots to get a coffee kick.

Looking for a touch of culture?  Don’t miss a guided tour at the impressive Afrikaans Language Monument.  The iconic granite landmark was completed in 1974 and offers an amazing insight into the development of the Afrikaans language as well as stunning views of the valley and surrounding mountains.

For the adventurous at heart, the Paarl Adventure Trail Network is a must for hiking, trail running and mountain bike riding.  It consists of custom-built trails that traverse a variety of terrain around the Paarl Mountain. The picturesque landscape of fynbos vegetation is dominated by massive, rounded granite rock formations set among wild olives, rock candlewoods and wagon trees.

Keep the cold outside and indulge in a pampering session at one of the local spas.  Visitors can spoil themselves with treatments at the Garden Spa at Babylonstoren.
