Several of our visitor establishments understand that pets are part of the family and welcome our furry friends.  It is always a good idea to contact places you intend to visit to enquire about their pet policies, but here are a couple of great spots for pet lovers.

If you’re planning a getaway to Paarl and want to bring your pet along, you’ll be delighted to know that you don’t need to bother with pet sitters or kennels anymore.  The following accommodation facilities should fit the bill with their pet-friendly policies:  Auberge de Courtrai Guest House, De Wingerd Wijnland Lodge, the Guest House at Marianne, Mountain Shadows Guest House and Middelplaas Paarl Guest House. These accommodation facilities all offer their own unique experiences, but share the warm hospitality that Paarl is renowned for.

You are also welcome to take your pets when you dine at the Amberg Art + Kitchen in the Du Toitskloof Pass, the modern Back’s Restaurant & Deli, the bustling Bean In Love Coffee House in Paarl’s main street, the tranquil Eat at perdeberg, Floreal Brasserie at Marianne Estate, the highly popular Kikka shops on Boulevard, Laborie & Main and the trendy La Paris Bistro.  More pet-friendly eating establishments include Mountain & Moon – Bistro Wine Bar in Frater Square, the ultimately elegant Polo Club Restaurant and Black Bar at Val de Vie estate and Copper Club Eatery Paarl.

A visit to Paarl won’t be complete without visiting some of our award-winning wine farms and craft breweries.  You are welcome to sample a glass of wine or an artisanal brew with your pets in tow at Rhebokskloof Wine Estate, Perdeberg Winery and Simonsvlei Wines and Bergriver Brewery’s Taproom or Karoo Craft Brewery.

Enjoy Paarl with your beloved pet.  Follow @visitpaarl on social media to find more pet-friendly establishments or visit
