A Virgin Limited Edition Experience In Mont Rochelle, South Africa

Positioned atop a hillock overlooking a 39-hectare vineyard, the Mont Rochelle Hotel in Franschhoek, South Africa, is postcard perfect. Ringed by mountains all around, guests are a 30-minute stroll away from the town’s lively high street; full of galleries, boutiques, restaurants and the popular wine tram (a double-decker tram that tours all the valley’s best vineyards). With Mont Rochelle’s complimentary shuttle, you only have to decide where to hop-on or hop-off for wine tastings, cellar tours or a spot of lunch.

Accommodation wise, you may opt for the main thatch-roofed structure that offers country house warmth. Alternatively,  select a valley-view Shiraz room or one of larger Cabernet rooms in the newest wing, complete with a veranda for matchless breakfast views. But book quickly, as the property only has 26 bedrooms.

The hotel offers a choice of two eateries – the casual Country Kitchen (attached to the cellar) and the main restaurant, Miko. At the latter, top selections include sumac-spiced beef tataki, Franschhoek with caper and sultana puree, and sweet potato fondants with lemon verbena sauce.
