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 Residence provides a haven of luxurious accommodation, fine dining and an all-round sensory indulgence.
Eleven opulent, individually-styled suites incorporate antiques, Persian carpets, fine fabrics and an eclectic mix of objects d’art. In addition to the deluxe décor, La Residence has a reputation for world-class dining. Haute cuisine is served in the baronial dining room or on the tranquil patios.
With sublime views, diverse pastimes, crisp mountain air and the stillness of the serene valley, this is an unparalleled luxury retreat. At La Residence, personalised service is the order of the day.
Today Franschhoek is celebrated for its remarkable wine-making and gourmet food. There are over 22 wine estates in the valley, several of which have achieved world renown, and eight of South Africa’s Top 100 restaurants are to be found here. True to its French origins, the region is rich in arts and culture. There are two historical museums worth visiting, namely the Huguenot Memorial and the Huguenot Museum.
The French sense of flair is evident in the stunning architecture, and the main road is lined with antique and craft shops, as well as many galleries displaying the work of local artists.
