Paarl

Paarl in the Western Cape Winelands was first settled by French Huguenot farmers in 1688. The town itself was only established in 1720 with the construction of the NG Church. In 1800 there were still only about 30 houses situated along Paarl’s high street. Before the construction of the first railway line in 1863 between Cape Town and Wellington Paarl developed relatively slowly. However once the railways were in full swing on this route, trade and development flourished. Paarl became world-famous for it’s carriage, cart and wagon making in the late 1800s and farming in the area continued to flourish.

The streets of modern day Paarl are bustling with activity, restaurants, wine bars, boutique hotels and historical buildings and museums abound.

Wellington

The first inhabitants of the Berg River Valley go back as far as the Stone Age. This period stretches over thousands of years to the San and Khoi groups of the 18 th and 19 th century. Artifacts from the early ages have been found around the Bainskloof mountains and hills surrounding Wellington and can be seen in the local museum.

Originally known as Limiet Valley (border or frontier valley), the area became known as Val Du Charron or Wagenmakersvallei (Valley of the Wagonmaker) towards the end of the 17 th century when the French Huguenots settled here. After the eventual establishment of the town in 1840, the name was changed to Wellington in honour of the Duke of Wellington, renowned soldier and conqueror of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.

Nestling at the foot of the Groenberg, the town lies in a picturesque valley on the banks of the Kromme River with the majestic Hawequa Mountains – silent sentinels on its eastern border. The town is a mere 45 minutes (72km) drive from Cape Town and is in easy reach of all the other towns of the Cape Winelands.
