Cape Winelands, Franschhoek, South Africa

Say goodbye to Cape Town and head off into the beautiful Cape Winelands, an area about an hour’s drive from the city and home to gorgeous traditional towns and sweeping wine estates in a mountain valley setting.

Arrive at the luxurious Mont Rochelle Hotel in the vineyards of a beautiful wine estate overlooking Franschhoek - a charming mountainside town that is home to the finest gourmet dining and wineries in the country. Sip on the estate’s fine wines as the sun’s descent over the valley turns the mountains the most beautiful shades of peachy pink.

Spend the next two days exploring this famously scenic region: you can enjoy a horseback ride through the vineyards, embark on a wine-and-chocolate tasting excursion, visit boutiques and galleries or just revel in the romantic ambience of the area.
