About Mont Rochelle, Franschhoek

With spectacular views over the valleys and vineyards of Franschhoek, Mont Rochelle Hotel is a luxurious boutique hotel providing world class accommodation alongside gourmet cuisine.

Fruit and wine have been cultivated here since the French Huguenots fled to the Cape to avoid religious prosecution in the 18th Century. This is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding winelands, and with Cape Town under an hour away, you can see the fabulous city, but stay in the glorious countryside.

Lodge Details


A beautiful boutique hotel with luxurious accommodation.


Just under an hour from Cape Town, Mount Rochelle Hotel is located in Franshhoek, the Cape Winelands. An area of outstanding natural beauty, and wonderful vineyards.

Accommodation & Facilities

Each and every room and suite has beautiful views of the mountains, vineyards and Franschhoek Valley and room styles are named after a type of wine, from Shiraz to Pinotage. Each room is uniquely designed with predominantly white, classic décor with simple prints – some with a more ‘English manor’ look, others with an African colonial style. Elegant and comfortable, you will find soft bathrobes and slippers, and a beautiful bed with rich Egyptian cotton sheets. Amenities include fans, air conditioning, under floor heating and satellite TV. In the bathroom you will find a bath tub and a shower, home to some nice Molton Brown soaps.

Mont Rochelle Hotel has a gym, wellness centre, Jacuzzi, sauna and outdoor pool and there are mountain bikes for the use of guests. There are two very different restaurants to cater for your tastes and a nice bar with a roaring fire, popular at sunset.


Good food and wine are served in stunning surroundings, both restaurants serve wonderful food. Mange Tout serves modern twists on the classics and Country Kitchen, located in the wine tasting facility of the Mont Rochelle vineyards, offers relaxed dining in a Mediterranean style. You can also pick up a picnic basket and enjoy your meal in the great outdoors.


Apart from enjoying good food and wine, there is a whole host of exciting and adventurous activities. To explore the landscape, head out on a mountain bike or on horse back, or take a private guided tour. You can play golf, go hiking or try fishing for trout on Dewdale Farm dam, or go wine tasting in vineyard trails and cellar tours.
