Set in 18.5 hectares of woods and farmland, surrounded by mountains yet not too far from the city or the airport, Essere Lodge really does have it all. The Barn is the hub of the property featuring a dining area with sweeping views of the valley, the lounge with comfy sofas and a large log fire for those chilly winter evenings. Breakfasts will be served using fruit, vegetables & herbs from our own garden (when in season). The stunning property is ideal for weekends away, detox retreats, yoga, meditation and even awakening the artist within. We also offer spa treatments on site, pre booking is essential.

Property Facilities:
Pool, Sun deck. Terrace for al fresco dining. Licensed bar. Large gardens. Spa treatments available (pre booked only)

Breakfast available 8:30 to 10:30

Area Information:
Surrounded by imposing mountain ranges, with the Obiqua Mountains to the west, the Winterhoek Mountains in the north and the Witzenberg Mountains to the east, nestles the rural village of Tulbagh. The Great Winterhoek Mountains tower 2077m above sea level and are scenically snow-capped in winter.
This beautiful, serene and unspoiled valley provides the ideal destination for all seasons. Tulbagh provides an excellent starting point from which to explore the Cape Winelands and surrounding areas, be that on foot, on a cycle, on horseback or by car.
Tulbagh is fast becoming the wedding destination of choice in the Western Cape and undoubtedly this is due to its immense beauty. Essere Lodge is immersed in the centre of Tulbagh’s rural area and is surrounded by woodlands, mountains and rivers. It is also incredibly private.

In Room Facilities:
Eight suites are available on a bed and breakfast basis, all with private patio or private secluded gardens. Each room is en suite. Our Acacia, Protea and Olive suites have both bath and shower, Cosmos has a bath and outside shower. All other rooms have en suite showers. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities.

From 20 July 2018 - a 2 bedroom log cabin, available on a self catering basis. Two bedrooms, bathroom, full kitchen and lounge area with basic DSTV package (welcome to bring own card). Outside is a large deck, with Jacuzzi and braai. Just perfect for a couple to enjoy some solitude, or for a group of friends to socialise.

Attractions:
Essere is an Italian word meaning "to be". And that's what Essere is all about. Whatever that means for you we offer the space to just be. Whether its an afternoon spent under the trees with a book and a glass of wine, a picnic with your significant other or maybe a dip in the pool. Take time for you by doing absolutely nothing, or visit the local vineyards, Waterval Nature Reserve, the Ceres Zip Line, or take a tractor ride up to the peak of the Mountains to watch the sun set..
Whatever you choose, when staying at Essere Lodge you will enjoy great service, incredible views, beautiful food, friendly staff and comfortable suites.

This place was very special. The family have taken on a massive project to restore this land and the beautiful converted buildings within and they have done a splendid job.
We so enjoyed relaxing outside on the terrace with a lovely braai. The owners dogs - Sherlock and Watson :) I wanted to taken them home with me!
Superb. 5 out of 5

Myself and my girlfriend really enjoyed our stay here. The owner, Allison, was incredibly helpful and friendly and really made us feel welcome. The layout of the lodge is well done which really adds to the relaxing atmosphere. One of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in.

A perfect, quiet, relaxing spot to use as your base if you're visiting Tulbach.
Essere is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life, but is really conveniently located at the same time.
A truly pretty setting.

We had the brand new two bedroom, self-service log cabin and are very sorry that we were only there for one night. We will definitely try to get there again for a longer period. Very comfortable and peaceful. Alison was kind and helpful with information for places to eat and things to do and see.

Friendly and extremely accommodating owners. Allowed us a later checkout and served us a late breakfast as we had early morning commitments. And wine in front of the fire was so perfect for the end of the day.

Gail and Mike were excellent hosts, their guesthouse is really lovely and comfortable and tastefully decorated. They even accommodated my food preferences and whipped up a vegan breakfast for me at very short notice!
