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 décor 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. 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. Facilities include a spa, a swimming pool with a great view (plus another pool for the Vineyard Suites) and a gym.
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.
In the area there is a diversity of incredible dining experiences, jazz evenings and wine tastings. Explore Franschhoek's quaint shops and galleries, play golf, take a helicopter trip or go fly fishing, horse riding, hiking or biking.
