La Residence



La Residence is a 30-acre spectacular château-style estate set amidst beautiful vineyards, lush gardens and fruit orchards at the foothills of the Franschhoek Mountains. Its magical setting enjoys breathtaking views and an atmosphere of complete tranquillity. The interiors of the hotel are magnificent and are filled with beautiful antiques, Persian rugs and fine art work. The hotel has a stunning infinity pool which overlooks the vineyards beyond. Guests can indulge in a range of spa treatments at the spa or in the privacy of their own room or balcony. La Residence restaurant’s dining area is ultra romantic and is reminiscent of a manor hall, resplendent with dazzling chandeliers, black and white flooring and vast fireplaces. Wine and hors d'oeuvres are served every evening by the fire or outdoors. The outdoor dining offers a delightful setting with panoramic mountain views for alfresco summer meals. When temperatures drop, guests can curl up with a book in the library and sip hot chocolate or ginger tea beside an open fire amidst the collection of fine paintings. The hotel has a bar offering a wide selection of cigars and drinks of all kinds. The La Residence is a perfect place for relaxation, excellent food and wine.


La Residence is a 5 minute drive from the centre of the village of Franschhoek. Franschhoek itself is just an hour’s drive from Cape Town, or 45 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.
