Leisurely Activities

Mont Rochelle view

A favourite activity for many guests is picnicking on the estate – the kitchen can arrange a well-stocked picnic basket with a chilled bottle of wine (or two!). Wine tasting sessions can be arranged anywhere in the hotel. Pampering at Mont Rochelle's spa, a visit to the gym and relaxing in the heated pool are also at your fingertips.  If you want to get out and about, the most popular activities are hiking, biking and a spot of retail therapy in the village.
