Mont Rochelle Opens It's Doors and Welcomes it's First Guests

Mont Rochelle Opens 1st September 2014

We’re cracking open the wine as we welcome our first guests today. After months of refurbishment Mont Rochelle is looking dazzling and we can’t wait to show it off!

Our team has been working hard since May when we officially purchased the hotel to bring it up to the Virgin Limited Edition standard. Mont Rochelle will have lots of little Virgin Limited Edition quirks along with Virgin style service and of course a lot of wine. Our boss Richard Branson visited the property late last year and loved it!
