On the hills overlooking Franschhoek valley is Mont Rochelle
a luxury hotel with breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding hills and valley.
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. Franschhoek is a traditional vineyard town in the Western Cape Province famously known as the French Corner of the Cape and is considered to be the food and wine capital of South Africa.
This elegant thatched villa is set on a wine estate, complete with working winery, and promises guests an exclusive luxury experience. Dining at Mont Rochelle:
There are two restaurants at Mont Rochelle including the Country Kitchen which joins up to our wine cellar – it’s an ideal place for a light lunch in the sunshine. Our main restaurant, Miko, is the setting for some fantastic gourmet meals including for those special occasions. Start the evening off with a refreshing cocktail from our bar and find a comfy space on the terrace to watch the sun set.
Country Kitchen is opened for lunch and a short drive from the main hotel. Our casual dining restaurant is an ideal spot to take in the sunshine and views from our terrace while sampling the delights of our kitchen.
Miko is the ideal setting for some fantastic gourmet meals including those for special occasions. We aim to showcase the very best produce and seasonal ingredients from South Africa paired with some excellent wine.
Franschhoek is the food and wine capital of South Africa so any stay would be incomplete without a visit to the wine cellar. Over 110 tons of grapes can be processed here in one season so make sure to arrange a tour during your trip.
