An elegant whitewashed structure topped by a traditional thatched roof, Mont Rochelle is perched high on a mountain overlooking the picturesque Franschhoek Valley. It offers a choice of 22 beautiful rooms and suites named after styles of wine, all of which feature views over either the quaint courtyard or the magnificent valley scenery. All the rooms include creature comforts such as a flat screen TV and speakers for streaming your music.
Mont Rochelle spoils their guests with delicious culinary offerings. Guests can decide between fine dining, relaxed Mediterranean fare or scrumptious picnic baskets enjoyed next to the dam in the middle of the vineyards. Adventure options in and around the estate range from mountain biking through the vineyards to picnics, private cellar tours, golf and fly fishing.
What we love about Mont Rochelle Hotel and mountain vineyards
- Mont Rochelle is a working wine farm and you can sample some of the vintages they produce on a fascinating cellar tour.
- Don’t forget to arrange a tour of the Belgian chocolate factory in town (which can be arranged with the hotel).
- Ask your hosts to pack a delicious picnic basket (complete with your choice of wine) and choose a scenic spot on the sprawling grounds to enjoy your al fresco meal.
