Mont Rochelle: A vine time to visit this March

With March being one of the warmest months in South Africa, it’s the perfect time of the year to head to the Winelands and explore all that the Western Cape has to offer.

Less than an hour away from Cape Town, in the heart of Franschhoek, Mont Rochelle’s unique setting, at the foot of the Klein Dassenberg mountain range, is the perfect location for being outdoors or for just kicking back and relaxing with a chilled glass or two.

Sounds tempting…here’s 5 more reasons to stay this season:

  1. Hop onboard the Wine Tram to discover the Franschhoek Valley and stop off to sample all the fine wines on offer at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates.

  2. The Cape Town International Jazz Festival, now in its 21st year, it’s renowned as the 4th largest jazz festival in the world and the largest jazz festival in Africa. Taking place on 27th – 28th March 2020, it features the very best local and international artists.

  3. The gardens and vineyards look as beautiful as ever, so pick up a freshly prepared picnic basket, not forgetting a bottle of Mont Rochelle wine of course and enjoy an alfresco lunch by the Dam as you soak up the warm South African sunshine.

  1. Take a walk or hike through the Nature Reserve and explore the mountain trails for the best panoramic views over the Franschhoek Valley. Did you know that on a clear day you can even see Table Mountain and the ocean? Back at Mont Rochelle, treat those tired feet to an indulgent treatment at our in-house spa.

  2. ‘Wine’ down and make the most of the longer summer afternoons with daily wine tastings at the Country Kitchen, available until 6pm. Enjoy the surrounding views as you sip on home-grown wines, paired with delicious nibbles.

What’s better still is that with our 2020 free night offer there’s never been a better time to visit Mont Rochelle. When you book a stay for three nights or longer, your final night will be on us!
