Head for Cape Town in South Africa to discover Mont Rochelle, a beautiful estate at the foot of the Klein Dassenberg mountain in the charming town of Franschhoek. Acquired in 2014 by Sir Richard Branson, this 5 * hotel with 26 rooms and 39-hectare vineyard is the meeting place for oenology enthusiasts and gourmet families eager for open spaces.
Considered to be the culinary and wine capital of South Africa, Franschhoek has also been the French Quarter of the Western Cape region since the Huguenots planted their vines in the 17th century during the Protestant Reformation.
Mont Rochelle is less than 1 hour from Cape Town Airport and only 35 minutes from the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Somerset West wine routes. Transfers can be arranged at your request for a fee.
The main building of Mont Rochelle has 22 rooms including 6 suites, 1 restaurant, 1 bar, 1 spa, 1 hammam, 1 fitness center, 1 heated outdoor pool, 1 tennis court, 1 shop, 1 vineyard 39 hectares and 1 wine cellar.
The decor of the rooms is fresh and contemporary with pretty pieces of wooden furniture and some colourful textiles.
All rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, safes, minibars and Nespresso machines. What else?
Shiraz rooms (31 m2) can only accommodate 2 adults. They offer their guests a king size bed and a view of the hotel’s inner courtyard. Merlot rooms (areas ranging from 33 m2 to 39 m2) are slightly more spacious than the Shiraz rooms and have a view of the valley, although they have the same capacity.
If you are traveling with a baby, you can put an extra bed in one of the Cabernet rooms (40 m2) with a view of the valley from its private terrace.
The Pinotage Suite (areas ranging from 62 m2 to 83 m2) and the Suite Cap Classique (areas ranging from 80 m2 to 103 m2) are ideal for families up to four people (including children). They consist of a spacious living room and a comfortable bedroom. The Classic Cap Suite has a private terrace and a private pool with superb views of the valley.
A few steps from the main house and not far from the Country Kitchen restaurant, is the Manor House, a beautiful 740 m2 villa that welcomes families in search of privacy. The residence can accommodate up to 8 adults and up to 6 children in their common room with bunk beds, ideal for successful pajamas evenings!
All rooms enjoy great views of the valley and feature an en suite bathroom with shower, bathtub and double vanity, as well as a TV, minibar, heating and air conditioning.
The tenants share a comfortable living room, a beautiful fitted kitchen, a heated outdoor pool and a private gym, without forgetting the presence of your chef! In short, at the Manor House, you feel at home while enjoying a five-star service!
The Manor House can be fully privatized for stays exclusively reserved for your family (minimum 8 people), as can the entire estate (main building and Manor House) for special events such as your family wedding, or the baptism of your child! The capacity of the domain is 52 people.
Mont Rochelle places at the disposal of its guests its restaurant Miko, but also The Country Kitchen, located nearby. This is where international and South African cuisine meet and are always accompanied by an exceptional vintage straight out of Richard Branson’s private wine cellar. Success comes with the rendezvous, so remember to reserve your table!
Not only will the children staying at the Manor House have the chance to enjoy the Miko or Country Kitchen menu three times a day (lunch, lunch and dinner), but they will also benefit from the presence of a Chef who will will concoct at home tasty small dishes adapted to their tastes.
