La Residence is tucked away in the tranquil vineyards of Franschhoek Valley. It is located on the private wine and olive estate commanding breathtaking views of the surrounding area. It is only 45 minutes away from Cape Town yet it will transport its guests to a bygone era, far removed from the bustle of city life.

There are 11 unique and luxuriously furnished suites each providing ultimate luxury, decorated with treasures such as fine French antiques and exquisite Persian carpets. There are expansive patios at which you can relax and admire the view or you can enjoy the day beds by the pool area with a best-seller. All your needs are taken care of here with the attention to detail and customer service being the order of the day, yet from the minute you walk in there is a relaxed homely feel as though you have always been there or an old friend returning.

Activities in and around the area include swimming, tennis, village and mountain walks, private wine tasting of various estates, cheese tasting and trout fishing. La Residence can also provide all your meals and they do this to a very high standard too.
