Welcome to Sir Richard Branson’s Mont Rochelle. A stunning 26 bedroom hotel and vineyard in the town of Franschhoek which is famously known as the French Corner of the Cape and is considered to be the food and wine capital of South Africa.
The grounds at Mont Rochelle cover 39 hectares (about 100 acres) and you’re welcome to go exploring. A favourite activity for many of our guests is having a picnic on the estate – our kitchen can arrange a well-stocked picnic basket with a chilled bottle of wine (or two!). There are two restaurants, a cozy bar, a spa, a gym and a heated outdoor pool. That’s not forgetting a 37-hectare vineyard and wine cellar of course.
All rooms come with Africology branded bathroom amenities, tea and coffee facilities, a notepad and pen, postcards with stamps, laundry bag, a safety deposit box, hairdryer, a well-stocked minibar, plug adaptor and umbrella.
