Virgin Limited Edition has entered into a contract with the owners of Mont Rochelle Hotel & Vineyard to buy the 22-bedroom hotel in Franschhoek, South Africa — which sits about 45 minutes from Cape Town. The gorgeous property will join the likes of the diverse group of Virgin hotels like the British Virgin Islands' Necker Island, The Roof Gardens in London, and South Africa's Ulusaba Private Game Reserve.
The region is known for its winelands and stunning scenery, the property itself bursting at the seams with charm. After the purchase is finalized though, Virgin will have the location undergo a brief renovation and revamp, which we're sure will give the hotel the brand's signature flair. Virgin Limited Edition plans to reopen the Franschhoek resort and vineyard sometime in August 2014, look for a full hotel review in the fall.
