Mont Rochelle is a charming luxury hotel on a wine farm with a beautiful view of the Franschhoek valley. Exceptional service, two fabulous restaurants and five-star luxury make Mont Rochelle one of Franschhoek's hidden gems.
Mont Rochelle is graceful country living at its best. Surrounded by picturesque vineyards and craggy peaks of the Dassenberg Mountains in the Cape Winelands, you are transported to a world of luxury and gentle decadence just minutes away from the charming winelands town of Franschhoek.
The rooms Mont Rochelle have been individually decorated to reflect a style of Cape grape varietal. While all have equal measures of opulence each has mood all of its own: a rich and chocolat-flavoured merlot, a creamy cap classique suite, noble cabernet, spicy shiraz and plummy pinotage. The reserve suite has a secluded courtyard garden and your own hot tub.
Food and wine take centre stage of your stay in the midst of all this elegance with two restaurant options, a magnificent al fresco terrace and gourmet picnic baskets to enjoy by the dam or under the shade of an oak tree surrounded by vineyards. Mange Tout is the flagship restaurant with a wonderful view of the valley; the Country Kitchen is in the wine tasting room offering less austere fare and a lively atmosphere to match; the bar opens out onto the lawn with lazy rattan chairs where you can enjoy light meals, sunset drinks or a nightcap by the cosy fire.
22 individually decorated suites, air conditioning, under-floor heating, room service, safe, satellite TV, mini bar, tea/coffee, concierge, business centre, wine cellar and tasting, bar and lounge, two restaurants, snack menu, spa, sauna, swimming pool, gym, picnic baskets, transfers and shuttle service.
Picnic by the dam, work out the in the gym, laze by the pool, take a spa treatment and eat to your heart's content, horseback rides through the farm and mountain biking. Franschhoek is a short shuttle ride away where you'll find more restaurants, shops, museums, galleries, craft shops and about 40 more wine farms to explore.
