Over the hill (and not so far away), down the Robertsvlei valley, 5km from the fine dining capital of the country, Franschhoek, and right next to the hiking trails of the Berg River dam, lies one of Franschhoek’s best kept secrets: The luxury self-catering suites of La Roche Estate. Sshhhh don’t tell 😉
La Roche has 3 private luxury self-catering suites, each with their own fully equipped kitchen, mobile fire pit, wood fired hot tub, king size bed and premium white linen, perfect for a tranquil, romantic getaway for two.
The suites are naturally named after the vineyards they overlook: The Pinot Noir Suites and The Chardonnay Suite.
The hot tub for Pinot Noir Suite 1 is in the forest area, making it more private and romantic for your getaway. A setting that could be taken out of the book, “The Secret Garden” (if they had a hot tub).
Pinot Noir Suite 2 has a beautiful view of the Robertsvlei valley, overlooking the manicured pinot noir vineyards while the hot tub is conveniently located below the suite, nestled under an oak tree, and encompassed by jasmine flowers.
The Chardonnay Suite is what is often referred to as “the honeymoon suite” with its large spa bath and luxury shower and fully equipped kitchen. This suite also has its own private hot tub. And oh, what a view. The temptation to utter the words “I’m in love” while you climb into the tub is inevitable. It is situated slightly above the suite, hugging the forest tree line with the fabulous view of the estate and surrounding mountains. The only problem with this spot is that you might never want to leave. Sundowners from this hot tub is a must!
La Roche is a place of passion. Passion for beauty, nature and tranquility so resist the covid blues and book your stay so you can sit in your own private woodfired hot tub, while sipping on some red wine enjoying the cold winter days overlooking the vineyards and the majestic Robertsvlei valley mountains.
We look forward to welcoming you at La Roche Estate.
