Villa Mont Rochelle, Haute Retreat South Africa

Franschhoek, Africa


Welcome to Mont Rochelle luxury retreat, the perfect venue suitable for your next events, located in the historical Franschhoek vineyard in the wine lands of South Africa. Mont Rochelle is a boutique retreat with spectacular amenities and accommodation for up to 52. Guests can rent the main manor house up to 8 guests or the entire retreat. The various properties and wings have been expertly built within a land of 100 acres encompassing lush valleys and dramatic peaks. From wine tastings to gourmet meals and picturesque golf courses, leave no stone unturned amid the Klein Dassenberg Mountains!

The stunning features at this private holiday estate include two restaurants, a cozy bar, spa, gym and heated outdoor swimming pool. A favorite activity for many guests, however, is picnicking – our kitchen can arrange a well-stocked basket with some chilled bottles specially paired from the outstanding wine cellar.

When you stay at Mont Rochelle retreat your stay includes breakfast, lunch or dinner on property including drinks in one of our restaurants, a complimentary wine tasting session, local taxes, complimentary selection of drinks and snacks from your minibar and complimentary wireless internet throughout the property.

Ask our concierge service to arrange a horseback riding, hiking through the nature reserve, wine tasting and cellar tours, beauty treatments and hammam sessions at the spa.

Note that the management at Mont Rochelle respects the environment. The approach of Virgin Limited Edition includes a commitment to fair trade policies and ethical dealings with employees and the local community. But ditching the plastic has not compromised either style or sophistication. In this sublime setting, a bespoke event or even a larger celebration working with nearby hotels and guest houses can also be organized. In the lead up to your wedding, birthday or anniversary, we would be happy to recommend suppliers to bring together all the finishing touches.

The 26 suites feature king size beds that are convertible into twins, en-suite bathrooms, dual vanities, televisions, air conditioning/heating and mini-bars with a complimentary selection of refreshments. Fittings and accoutrements represent the forefront of contemporary luxury.

Over the years, luminaries such as Sir Richard Branson, Erwin Schnitzler and Miko Rwayitare have called themselves owners of this outstanding retreat. In 1940, Abraham Michelson purchased this land which housed twenty large oak vats in the cellar, the majority of vines having been planted at the turn of the century. After the second world war Michelson started Franschhoek Winery with Italian farmers. Mont Rochelle keeps the European tradition of excellence abroad. Travel In Style!
