La Residence is a secluded retreat situated in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, in the heart of the Cape Winelands just an hour from Cape Town.
Designed along the lines of a French country château, La Residence offers just five luxuriously furnished suites and exceptional service. Franschhoek village has become the gastronomic capital of South Africa and La Residence serves a superb blend of local and Mediterranean cuisine, and guests can dine indoors, or on the veranda overlooking the vineyards.
There are also many other excellent restaurants in the village. Activities at La Residence include tennis, trout fishing, mountain walks and private wine tastings at some of South Africa's most famous wine estates. Hot-air ballooning and paragliding can also be arranged, or you can relax by the pool, admire the view, or enjoy a film in the home cinema.
- Guests get their own butler, chef and chauffeur to arrange everything from the perfect meal to a range of excursions in the local area.
