Mont Rochelle is a stunning 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard just under an hour’s drive from Cape Town in the town of Franschhoek in South Africa.

With Franschhoek being a traditional vineyard town in the Western Cape Province and considered to be the food and wine capital of South Africa,  Mont Rochelle makes for a perfect location for rest and relaxation where guests are encouraged to sample the delicious home grown wines, swim in the outdoor pool, dine in the on-site restaurants or discover the local area.

Hot off the press for this month is Mont Rochelle’s latest offering with “The Dam Van” – a vintage wagon offering picnic snacks and drinks, located between the dam and the vineyards offering a unique alfresco experience within the beautiful natural surroundings.

Local residents can also enjoy over 30% discount on a 2020 stay at Mont Rochelle plus a 3 course dinner and wine. Valid on arrivals from 2nd January – 20th December 2020 based on a minimum of two nights, when booking up to 14 days prior to arrival.

Residents rates start from ZAR 9,600 per room, for two nights, based on two people sharing a Merlot room.

The rate includes daily breakfast, a 3 course dinner and bottle of Mont Rochelle’s very own wine at the hotel’s flagship MIKO restaurant, complimentary selection of drinks and snacks from your minibar, complimentary wine tasting at Country Kitchen and twice daily return transfers to Franschhoek village at set times each day.

For those looking to enjoy a spectacular culinary adventure, Mont Rochelle offers a 5-course tasting menu with wine pairing in MIKO and either a two course lunch or a freshly prepared picnic basket from Country Kitchen, so that guests can explore the sprawling 100 acre estate.

Rates for the foodie getaway start from ZAR 11,070 for two nights’ accommodation and includes daily breakfast, wine tasting, a five-course wine pairing dinner at MIKO, a two-course lunch at Country Kitchen, or a picnic basket and a selection of drinks and snacks from the minibar.
