About Us

La Residence is in a class of its own. Located in the beautiful Franschhoek valley, where the exquisite vineyards and mountains form a picture perfect backdrop, La Residenceprovides a haven of luxurious accommodation, fine dining and an all-round sensory indulgence.As the name suggests the town of Franschhoek (French Corner) offers a wealth of French heritage. Distinguished by its fine colonial architecture, the town also incorporates French flair in cuisine and wine-making.Beautiful beaches and a bustling nightlife are to be found only 45 minutes away in Cape Town, South Africa's Mother City.
An integral part of the luxurious La Residence experience is the elaborate interior.La Residence offers eleven luxuriously appointed suites, exquisitely decorated with ornate antiques, plush Persian carpets and an eclectic mix of artworks, and palatial bathrooms.Each of the rooms is uniquely appointed; from an exotic Tibetan suite with oriental antiques and hand-painted screens to French boudoirs with Provencal antiques and mirrored dressers. The fabrics throughout include superlative silks and textures, handpicked to match each interior. The dining and living areas resemble an elegant manor hall. Communal areas lead onto country terraces where roses and fountains make for serene summer evenings.
Distinguished dining is facilitated by a setting reminiscent of a manor hall. Checkered marble flooring, walk-in size fireplaces and a sweeping four-metre chandelier all open onto wide terraces bordered by roses with a restful rill to enhance alfresco summer evening meals. The elegant dining area is enhanced by the dishes that blend fine flavours, diverse textures, the freshest local ingredients and striking presentation.Everyday fare includes delights such as Salmon Trout fish cakes, imaginative salads with refreshing fennel bulbs, pickled lemons, caper berries and various crispy nuts. Celebrating our passion for regional produce, we enjoy preparing traditional venison, local fish and free range poultry.
La Residence presents a host of activities to enhance your relaxation and enjoyment. Unwind in the villa’s magnificent infinity pool or visit one of the award-winning restaurants in the village. Enjoy a private cheese or wine tasting at one of the surrounding estates by appointment.For the outdoorsmen, we can arrange golf, trout fishing, quad-biking, helicopter trips, paragliding, hot-air ballooning or a horseback tour of the surrounding wine farms. A more sedate excursion is the horse-drawn carriage ride through the local village and vineyards.
La Residence uses a network of highly qualified outside therapists that cater to individual needs. From massage to beauty, whole-body therapies are available. Additionally, we are able to provide our guests with treatments in their rooms, or on their private balconies when the weather is fine.

Best of the Best

Set in South Africa’s wine country, amid tranquil vineyards and against a majestic mountain backdrop, La Residence is an extraordinary retreat designed in the style of a French country manor. Fine antiques, sumptuous Persian carpets and gleaming black-and-white marble flooring all bespeak luxury, and the staff goes to great lengths to ensure it. Swing open the terrace doors of your suite (one of only 11, each unique) and admire mountain views. Dine alfresco on the rose terrace or in the opulent dining room — there are no set times for breakfast, lunch or dinner; food of the highest order is prepared on demand.

Hotel Tip

La Residence’s gracious (and superbly connected!) manager can arrange a private winery tour or a horse trek into the surrounding countryside.

What can I say, it was exceptional! Probably the most stunning place I've ever stayed. The staff was wonderful in every aspect, the food was great and the rooms are to die for. The private wine tasting at sunset was spectacular. I want to go back and stay longer next time.
