The general feel of Mont Rochelle is one of belonging. We were welcomed with a glass of excellent wine and sat down in front of what is without doubt a scene of serene beauty. Our room, a shiraz, was large and well appointed, beautifully clean had a wonderful view. The restaurant had some divine cuisine; the degustation menu was sublime with selected wines from the estate. The wine tasting is carried out in another building and were chauffeured there by the management. Thanks to Maton, we booked a great wine tasting trip on horseback (or rather they booked it for us) and an excellent lunch at la Petite Ferme, and the taxi took us there, picked us up and drove us to town, waited an hour while we shopped and then drove us back. For £10.
The little things, attention to detail, were what set Mont Rochelle apart, putting a cold bottle of water beside your bed while you sat in the bar at night or setting out the tv and the tv guide, to the correct day, with the remote in place and the tv on standby. Nods and smiles from all the staff, a warm family feeling. One not to be missed on a trip to SA, will return and recommend to all.
