Welcome to Ruitersvlei!

Adventure Lifestyle Estate

The History of the Estate

Located in the heritage Suider-Paarl valley, 45km from Cape Town, the farm is framed by mountains and rich in historical significance.

In 1650, a group of riders surveying the Paarl area for the Dutch East Indica Company saw the potential and named the sopes of the mountain valley Ruigtersvallei, notable for its lush oil and good land. The first record of the farm appeared in 1688 and changed hands many times until it became known as Ruitersvlei.

The Estate holds true to the colourful history as visitors can enjoy the slopes on our trails and enjoy the historical significance as the stables are now guest rooms and the old cellar offers a venue for weddings, conferences and events.

The Team

We believe that great things are done by bringing a series of small things together.

We’re a small family-run business which is growing, learning, and changing in this ever-evolving landscape. The service is personal, our team is small and local. We hope that you come visit us for the experience. Enjoy a drink or two over blushing hour and enjoy what the Cape Winelands has to offer.
