La Residence

Explore South Africa

La Residence is arguably the most luxurious hotel in Franschhoek. Think a modern day Versailles intermingled with a Rajasthani palace. Plum orchards and beautiful vineyards with a stunning mountain backdrop provide the surroundings of this 30 acre private estate. The decor is certainly memorable everywhere the eye comes to rest there's a Persian rug, exotic antique, fine art work or sparkling Indian chandelier.

The hotel offers 11 suites and 5 luxury villas, all with their own unique personalities. In each room can be found a flatscreen TV, DVD/CD player, minibar, Molton Brown and Charlotte Rhys toiletries, underfloor heating, walk-in showers and separate baths.

Dining takes place in the black and white tiled reception room which doubles as a dining room opening out onto the veranda. At night surrounded by candlelit a sommelier will help you match wine from La Residence's cellar to the daily changing set menu of seasonal, local produce.

How to get to La Residence

La Residence is only a 5 minute drive away from the centre of Franschhoek village. Cape Town International Airport is only 45 minutes away and the city itself an hour's drive, depending on traffic.
