Stay at Sir Richard Branson's utterly idyllic hotel and vineyard on South Africa's Western Cape, with breakfast, a wine tasting, and plenty of perks


Take a 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard, place it in what's considered the food-and-wine capital of South Africa, add a touch of that Virgin Limited Edition style, and what do you get? A stunning destination getaway where Sir Richard Branson himself likes to sample a glass of the good stuff, naturally. Welcome to Mont Rochelle Wine Estate, purchased and extensively refurbished by Branson in 2014, with all the first-class hospitality you'd expect from the Virgin Group tycoon.

It’s hard to ignore that you’re in a vineyard when shown to your room. But while the wine lends inspiration to the names, the decor is kept bright, light and contemporary. Expect all the mod cons, with luxury touches like underfloor heating in your en-suite bathroom and views as thrilling as the myriad designer flourishes. There are even postcards and stamps so you can boast about your sumptuous stay to those back home.

Merlot rooms come with valley views, while Cabernet rooms reside in the Vineyard wing and feature a private terrace apiece.

- Garden or valley view
- Africology bath amenities
- Safety deposit box
- Hairdryer
- Complimentary minibar with a selection of drinks and snacks
- Complimentary Wi-Fi


It’s not just the wine that’s guaranteed to be good at this hotel and vineyard, with the blend of international cuisine and South African classics as impressive as the local vintages. South Africa’s best seasonal ingredients can be enjoyed in both restaurants, MIKO and the Country Kitchen, alongside fun and contemporary decor that's in keeping with the relaxed atmosphere. Make sure to join the sheep (statues, obviously) for a cocktail on the terrace as the sun sets.


Two dedicated spa treatment rooms, a hammam and a heated outdoor swimming pool make treating yourself to some downtime easy at Mont Rochelle Wine Estate. Eco-friendly Africology beauty products, which are made from 100% essential oils and natural plant extracts, are also as kind as they are effective.


At just under an hour’s drive from Cape Town, Mont Rochelle’s roots are perfectly placed in what is widely considered to be the food and wine capital of South Africa – the Western Cape Province. You’ll even find the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Somerset West wine routes within a 35-minute drive from here. When not sampling the fruits of the grape, the nearby Franschhoek village offers a variety of galleries, antiques and craft shops, in addition to the Mont Rochelle's picturesque 100 acres.
