Other facilities include a spa wine tasting room and restaurants, open to the public. Important to note that there are no interleading rooms, but the staff will do their best to accommodate each guest’s needs, such as offering two rooms next to each other in a wing that can be closed off by a door (ask for the Merlot rooms 18 and 19). At Mont Rochelle, you will find hospitality at its finest, with excellent in-house facilities and complementariness. They also offer a Little Caucus program for children – perfect for when parents want to slip away for a wine tasting. In this regard, it is also good to know that Mont Rochelle offers babysitters on request to families. What makes Mont Rochelle exceptional is that its rooms are well thought out.
