What we love
A hotel with a difference, placed in the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, La Residence is truly sensation. Surrounded by vineyards, plum orchards and mountains - a stay here is to immerse yourself in the heart of South African living. Hosting an array of suites dotted across this 30 acre land; each one unique, each one full of character and each one personifies luxury.
Setting the scene
This untouched expanse provides the eyes and ears with a feeling of refreshment and overwhelming satisfaction; a setting quite simply like no other. The vineyards and orchards provide a sense of being at harmony with nature on luxurious proportions. The decor is centred on grandeur and the regal feel seeps through every corner of this special property. With an attention for minute detail, it's a feast for the eyes and a banquet for beauty.
Elaborate, contemporary, understated, elegant, and soulful are just a few of the words that spring to mind when describing the suites on offer. Each designed to a high spec with clear ideas in mind, we are confident that there's a suite for everyone here. With all boasting astounding views, you're truly spoilt for choice here.
Head into the quaint yet stunning village of Franschhoek and discover international cuisine at a variety of top quality restaurants. 'The Food and Wine Capital of South Africa' is the title that her locals fervently live by and succeed in doing so spectacularly. Take in the flavours, styles, personalities and ingredients from all over the world and we guarantee you'll want for nothing more.
A trip to this area of South Africa is not complete without the obligatory wine tasting on offer in abundance in the Franschhoek Valley. Whether you're a novice or a connoisseur, there are tours available for all types. Be prepared to be wowed and be prepared to be educated by the best in the business. Take advantage of the 2 fully qualified in-house therapists and immerse yourself in their range of treatments and massages. And make sure you leave time to absorb the stunning backdrop from the outdoor pool as well. Enjoy the tradition, history, culture and personality of Franschhoek or venture in the lively city of Cape Town.
Definitely a place to bring the whole family - after all, the sight of your children discovering the best of outdoor life that South Africa has to offer is surely not to be missed. Provide them with memories that they will cherish forever and watch them flourish in this vast, yet safe wilderness. The Hotel is more than willing to assist however required and has systems in place to cater for whatever you, as a parent, may wish for.
