Discerning travellers will appreciate the understated opulence inherent in every aspect of this haven of luxurious accommodation and fine dining.
The beauty of its backdrop – the vineyards and mountains of the Franschhoek Valley – are more than matched by the elegance of the hotel, so while activities such as golf, fishing and wine-tasting can be arranged, perhaps the best activity of all is to sit by the infinity-edge pool or on the terrace and simply drink in your surroundings.
Guests here are also ideally placed for exploring South Africa’s famous Winelands. Explore surrounding vineyards and wineries on a horseback tour, or even by horse-drawn cart. Set within a private 30-acre farm estate, La Residence is incredibly scenic, with each of the 11 luxe suites individually designed and lavishly appointed. Enjoy the breathtaking vistas out over Franschhoek and the Winelands from your private veranda or balcony, or indulge in relaxing spa therapy,
Guests keen to keep up with their fitness regime can do so at the spacious gym, though a more indulgent experience is to be found in the dining scene at the hotel. Naturally, there’s a keen focus on the very best wines here, complementing an exquisite array of gourmet fare. From the extensive breakfast buffet to canapés by the fire to an incredible seasonal dinner, you’ll find no end of gastronomic flair on show at La Residence.
From the moment you arrive, you’ll be captivated by the luxury and beauty of this place – from the rugged mountains and valleys to the peacocks strutting the hotel grounds! Whether you’re looking to relax with a glass of wine and a good book or head out and explore the beautiful South African landscapes, you’re guaranteed an exceptional escape here.
11 luxuriously appointed suites, exquisitely decorated with ornate antiques, plush Persian carpets and an eclectic mix of artworks, and each with a palatial bathroom.
