Setting the scene
Located in the charming town of Franchoek, the lovely Mont Rochelle Hotel is a sight to behold. Built on a 39 hectares of vineyards and natural wilderness you'll feel completely away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Unwind with a glass of wine whilst watching the sun set, or indulge in a lovely candle lit meal, then finish it off with a deserved massage in the signature spa. No matter what you do you can feel at ease whilst you do it.
The hotel is made up of 26 rooms, 6 of which are suites and each category is named after local wines. They have been designed exceptionally and offer sensational views out to the valley.
The Cabernet Rooms, include private terraces, Pinotage Rooms are the largest rooms and feature separate lounges, the Cap Classique Suites, have lounges, private terraces and plunge pools. The Manor House itself can actually be rented out for larger groups and is absolutely stunning with two swimming pools and a gym.
The dining options at Mont Rochelle are exceptional. The main restaurant Miko is where breakfast is served daily, all meals are prepared from local produce and presented beautifully. For a more informal dining option, check out the Country Kitchen, lovely and bright with plenty of natural light with an outdoor terrace. For a nice treat you can have a picnic basket made up for days when you go out exploring.
If you're looking to relax and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet then make use of the in-house spa in the main ranch. There is also an outdoor heated pool where you can look out and enjoy the stunning mountainous scenery. If you want to venture out of the property and explore there an array of hiking and cycling paths available. The village of franshhoek is lovely to wander around, you can have a look through some of the local art shops and galleries and learn more about the culture.
Despite Mont Rochelle being famous for its wine, they are incredible when it comes to children. They allow children in both their restaurants and can arrange special food for them if they don't like the options on the menu. Although not a set children's program, "Little Corkers" is something they have set up, whereby the staff will help organise activities, from games, to outdoor adventure and so much more. It is worth noting that they cannot watch the children at all times so adult supervision is still recommended. Babysitting is also available at an extra charge.
Mont Rochelle is a 45 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport
