Paarl Holidays

Welcome to the pearl of the Cape Winelands

With the imposing granite outcrop of Paarl Mountain to one side, and surrounded by thriving vineyards and orchards, Paarl offers a multitude of hiking trails and cycling routes through some of the most stunning scenery in South Africa.

Besides the spectacular landscape, the town of Paarl is also the third oldest settlement in South Africa and has a rich cultural, architectural and historical heritage for you to uncover during your visit. 

The Cape Winelands region is, of course, renowned for its vineyards and Paarl, in particular, is revered for its full-bodied, spicy shiraz and pinotage and crisp white chenin blanc, chardonnay and viognier and is also home to several small craft brewers. After exploring the sights of the region, enjoy a glass of the locally grown and produced wine and embrace your peaceful surroundings.
