Elegantly poised at the edge of Lake Geneva
Throw open the French doors to your suite, breathe the fresh mountain air and gaze out over placid Lake Geneva and its famous Jet d’Eau, the magnificent 140-metre fountain. Our prominent hotel affords guests spectacular lakeside views, backed by snow-dusted Alpine peaks and the majestic Mont Blanc.
Set in the heart of the picturesque Swiss city of Geneva, the Hotel d'Angleterre combines the joys of a central location – the complimentary boat shuttle service leaves from just outside the hotel – with the relaxing atmosphere of a lakeside retreat. Make the most of all the Geneva has to offer from our enviable central location, returning to the luxurious surroundings of Hotel d'Angleterre after a lively day in the city.
The Bouchard Finlayson cellar is conveniently located a scenic 90 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, close to the world-famous whale-watching centre of Hermanus. Where tradition meets innovation Bouchard Finlayson is both a family affair, and a place of collaboration. A labour of love that sees the marriage of Old World winemaking heritage with New World innovation.
The estate was established in South Africa’s Hemel-en-Aarde valley in 1989, a ground-breaking partnership between acclaimed Burgundian winemaker Paul Bouchard and trailblazing local winemaker Peter Finlayson. With a shared passion for Pinot Noir, they transformed the valley’s virgin soil into vineyard, and laid the foundations for the cellar of Bouchard Finlayson. In 2000 the Tollman family purchased the estate, realising a long-held dream to own a vineyard in Africa.
The Bouchard Finlayson estate stretches across 125 hectares of the Hemel-en-Aarde valley. However, only 25 hectares is cultivated under vine with the remainder set aside as a conservancy to protect the indigenous ‘fynbos’ vegetation endemic to the Western Cape.
Bouchard Finlayson is proud to be a WWF-SA Conservation Champion. Conservation Champion wine farms pursue long-term conservation commitments and spearhead innovations in water and energy sufficiency.
