Mont Rochelle

Overview

Mont Rochelle has long been regarded as one of the best places to stay in Franschhoek, so, was with considerable fanfare that the property was purchased and refurbished by Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Limited Edition brand in the summer of 2014. The property re-opened in September 2014, with it's original character and integrity in place, but with the beautiful touches that are synonymous with the Virgin collection.

Each of the 22 rooms are beautifully appointed, commanding wonderful views out across the gardens and to the surrounding mountains and vineyards. All rooms now include complimentary mini-bars, which is a lovely touch. The main building also houses their fine dining restaurant, spa and heated outdoor swimming pool. The gardens are a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the views across the Franschhoek Valley, whilst the remote location provides the property with a peaceful  atmosphere. 

With another country kitchen style restaurant and winery on offer, guests are spoilt for choice on what to do when here, although picnics in the grounds are always popular. The iconic Franschhoek wine tram passes close by and there is the chance to tour the wineries on horseback which is a wonderful experience.

Our Thoughts

The refurbishment in the summer of 2014 has firmly re-established Mont Rochelle as one of Franschhoek's premier properties. With just 22 rooms it retains a small feel, but has the facilities and service of a much larger property. The heated outdoor swimming pool is very welcoming and the spa is fantastic. There is so much to see and do on the property and we would highly recommend visits to their superb winery and picnics on the grounds.

Mont Rochelle is a wonderful gourmet retreat, with their main fine dining restaurant located in the main building and a further, country kitchen style restaurant located at the winery. They also offer picnics which can be taken out and enjoyed in the grounds and regular wine tastings are offered to guests.

Mont Rochelle has 16 rooms and 6 suites, which are spread throughout the main house. All rooms are spacious, comfortable, well appointed and come with complimentary minibars. The suites are a really great option if you have a slightly longer stay, especially the Cap Classique Suite with its own swimming pool.
