Grande Roche

Found at the foot of the magnificent Paarl Rock, overlooking vineyards and mountains, the Grande Roche is a place where history interacts with modern comforts. The ideal base to explore the Cape.

There are 18 terrace suites built in the original Cape colonial style, with thatched roofs and spectacular views. Four studio suites are situated amongst the landscaped gardens in the midst of a working wine farm with stunning views of the Drakenstein Mountains. There are another 12 spacious duplex and garden suites.

The Grande Roche Restaurant, located in the Manor House, has been named one of the top ten restaurants in South Africa. The Michelin-trained chef infuses classic international cuisine with imagination and innovation. To complement the exquisite menu is an extensive selection of award-winning wines.

Enjoy the nearby golf courses and relax by the pool. Experience the misty autumn colours or the bright green vines bordered by roses in the summer - sure to impress whatever the season.

Why we like it

The Grand Roche is within easy reach of some of the region's top wine estates, making it the perfect place from which to try some wine tasting.
