This town, just an hour and a half from Cape Town, takes its Christmas in Winter festival seriously and offers visitors the ultimate wonderland experience. So, from Saturday, 23 to Sunday 24 June 2018, the usually quiet village will be decked out in yuletide lights and decor, with restaurants, bars and museums all getting involved and keeping the chills at bay with special concerts, Christmas–inspired menus and plenty of glühwein.

Be prepared to take a trip with Father Christmas down historic Church Street and help him hand out treats to the many bright-eyed children. If thatbrowse through the arts, crafts, photographic exhibitions, art galleries and quaint shops. You’re bound to find something to start filling the Christmas stockings with. Enjoy cheese, Belgian chocolate and olive tastings or join in the chilli eating and various other competitions happening. Jumping castles, pony rides, face painting are just some of the activities that will keep the little ones entertained.

A trip to the Tulbagh valley would be incomplete without a visit to the stunning wine estates. Be sure to join the winemakers and their staff for wine tastings, cellar tours and a variety of activities which will be on offer…….
