Hotel Description

There’s very little that’s at all hip about it, but for most of us, that’s no obstacle — it’s difficult to find fault either with the stunning natural setting of Franschhoek, the valley at the heart of South Africa’s wine industry, or with Mont Rochelle, the superb small hotel on the hillside overlooking the village. It was French Huguenots who first settled this valley centuries ago (hence the name), and to this day there’s an air of Provence about the place, with its rustic farmhouse architecture and acres of vineyards.

The quiet and picturesque setting is enhanced by the elegant atmosphere of the hotel. The original guest rooms are charming, rustic in style, spacious enough and quite comfortable; rooms in the luxury wing, however, are even larger and more decadent, though perhaps slightly more international in style. Regardless, they’re universally roomy and subtly luxurious under the aegis of Virgin Limited Edition, a forward-looking stewardship well suited to a 21st-century vineyard hotel.

A swimming pool with bar service is the nexus of a relatively sedate daytime social scene, while many of the guests are off on wine tastings, tours, or engaging in athletic pursuits like biking or horseback riding. At night the action, such as it is, is in the twin restaurants and a terrace-equipped bar, where a fine local cuisine is complemented by an extensive wine list drawing heavily from Franschhoek’s vineyards. Standard diversions like spa treatments and rounds of golf can be arranged, but the focus is largely on the epicurean life and an atmosphere of elegant tranquility. And as picnics go, theirs are legendary.

How to get there: Mont Rochelle Hotel is approximately a one-hour drive from Cape Town International Airport.
