About Mont Rochelle
Mont Rochelle is a stunning 22-bedroom hotel and vineyard just under an hours drive from Cape Town in the stunning vineyard town of Franschhoek in South Africa. There are four Shiraz Rooms with king-size beds and all feature courtyard or valley views. The six Merlot Rooms are larger than the Shiraz Rooms and also boast king-size beds with valley views. The six Cabernet Rooms include a private terrace overlooking the valley. There are also four even more spacious Pinotage Suites which each feature a separate lounge. Finally, guests staying in the two Cap Classique Suites will enjoy a lounge, a private terrace and their own plunge pool.
The grounds at Mont Rochelle cover 39 hectares (about 100 acres) and you are welcome to go exploring. A favourite activity for many of the guests is picnicking on the estate; the kitchen can arrange a well-stocked picnic basket with a chilled bottle of wine (or two!). There are two restaurants, a cosy bar, a spa, a gym and a heated outdoor pool. That's not forgetting a 37 hectare vineyard and wine cellar of course!
The property has two restaurants including the Country Kitchen which joins up to the wine cellar, it's an ideal place for a light lunch in the sunshine or a relaxed dinner. The main restaurant, Miko, is the setting for some fantastic gourmet meals including for those special occasions. Start the evening off with a refreshing cocktail from the bar and find a comfy space on the terrace to watch the sun set.
Mont Rochelle has two dedicated spa treatment rooms as well as a Hammam. They use the eco-friendly Africology Authentic range of products which are made from 100% essential oils and natural plant extracts.
Franschhoek is a traditional vineyard town in the Western Cape Province famously known as the French Corner of the Cape and is considered to be the food and wine capital of South Africa. Escape to this picturesque corner of South Africa at the foot of the Klein Dassenberg Mountain Range for relaxation and a superb culinary experience accompanied by some outstanding wines.
The area around Franschhoek, which in the Afrikaans language means ‘French corner’, was as the name suggests once a French enclave when over 300 years ago a group of Huguenot settlers arrived fleeing religious persecution. That influence, which nestled right alongside the larger Dutch-speaking community, is what gives the region such a rich and varied history, and unsurprisingly, a taste for fine food and wine.
