Mont Rochelle Hotel Attractions
It was here the persecuted French Protestants, among them experienced winemakers, chose to settle when they sought refuge in South Africa in the late 1600s. The place was called 'Coin Francais', the French corner; in Dutch, Fransch Hoek. Today, the French influence in Franschhoek valley is still strong. It can be seen in the picturesque architecture of the small village, and tasted in the area’s wonderful cuisine and wines, the settlers’ greatest legacy.
