Mont Rochelle Hotel & Vineyard

Mont Rochelle Hotel & Vineyard is set on 100 acres of lushly landscaped grounds and centuries-old vineyards in the Cape Winelands. The property is a sophisticated respite from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town and the daily travel of safari. Part of Sir Richard Branson’s private collection of resorts, Mont Rochelle spares no expense in merging traditional wine country charm with modern luxury.

Dine at the Country Kitchen with views of the surrounding mountain ranges, picnic in the vineyards, visit the 150-year-old wine cellar and enjoy world-class wine tastings. For a change of pace, bike or walk the picturesque town of Franschhoek and explore its many charms. Alternatively, take a horseback ride through the landscaped grounds and vineyard. More movement? Take a hike through the surrounding hills and valleys or hit the gym. If you’re feeling worn out, opt to relax at the spa.

Mont Rochelle has 22 rooms, including 6 suites arranged around the main house. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed and range in size and amenities. Choose from rooms with king-size beds and courtyard or valley views, or suites with private plunge pools and terraces.
