Recently acquired by Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Limited Edition collection of hotels and lodges, Mont Rochelle is a delightful boutique hotel located in Franschhoek - the gourmet capital of South Africa. Nestled within almost one-hundred peaceful acres of grounds (most of which are given over to its own vineyard), the main building, a fine example of Huguenot architecture, has been lovingly restored into a stylish contemporary and luxurious retreat, boasting just twenty-two guest rooms and suites. Along with the gourmet cuisine and fabulous wines available at Mont Rochelle's two sublime restaurants, guests can enjoy an array of facilities and activities during their stay, including wine-tasting and horse-riding, enjoying a spa treatment or simply relaxing on one of the sun loungers, which are dotted around the lovely swimming pool. For the ultimate experience of South Africa, consider combining your stay here with a few days at sister property, Ulusaba , situated in Sabi Sand Game Reserve, near Kruger National Park.
