Grande Roche Hotel, a unique getaway in the valley of Paarl…

Nestled in the valley of Paarl in the vineyards of Cape Town, discover the Grande Roche Hotel. The hotel is split in various buildings of a wine-making farm that dates back from the 18th century. As you arrive on this charming property with the view of the beautiful vineyards and the mountains, you will immediately feel as if you’re in a new world.

After a warm welcome at the hotel reception, you will follow winding paths in the gardens, surrounded by flowers, to discover your charming room. Each suite is settled in a historic Cape-Dutch style house, with a thatched roof bringing a real vintage touch to this exceptional place. Modernity and an old-style meet each other in the suites; they consist of a warm lounge, a clean and crisp bathroom, and your comfortable and spacious bedroom.
Take a walk on the property to enjoy the landscape and finish the afternoon by freshening up with a dive in one or both of the pools. At sundown, it’s time to delight for a delicious dinner in Bosman’s. This award-winning restaurant is situated in the Manor House of the hotel. It is recognized for its fine international cuisine. An explosion of flavours and textures will transport you on a journey. In addition, you will enjoy the tasting of a local wine with the personalized advice lavished by one of the sommelier’s of the house.

The following morning, you will wake up with the bird songs, before beginning a hike to explore the biodiversity of the rich natural reserve of Paarl. A wonderful buffet awaits you before you start your day: a wide choice of fresh products for a delicious English breakfast, croissants and homemade pastries, a great deal of fruits and even more original, some oysters! Enjoy your delicious breakfast on the terrace of the Manor House with a magnificent view on the mountains and the undulating vineyards.Relax, and think of nothing else…
