Restaurant Manager, Peter Avis took some time out of his busy schedule working at Babylonto visit the food and wine capital of the world, Franschhoek.
This was no holiday, he was out there to sprinkle a bit of Babylon's magic dust on our newest property Mont Rochelle and make sure the team were in tip top condition ready for the opening at the beginning of September. Check out Peter's tales of his South African adventure below.
I have been so lucky over the past 13 years to be able to work and experience Virgin Limited Edition's unique portfolio of properties all over the world, so I really could not wait to experience the newest addition to the family, Mont Rochelle and it really did not disappoint!
I arrived at the airport and was picked up by Mont Rochelle's driver, Abby. He was so warm and welcoming. The drive through Cape Town, Stellenbosch and onto Franschhoek was simply stunning with the most amazing scenery.
All the indicators were there that this was a Virgin Limited Edition property. From the stunning location and views to the warm and passionate welcome from the team, even the Mont Rochelle duck made an appearance in the bathroom!
