La Residence is situated in the Franschhoek Valley on a 30-acre estate filled with vines, fruit trees, flowers and herbs. On hot days, the shimmering infinity pool beckons. Sip drinks under a shady umbrella, or relax with treatments in the Spa. The air-conditioned Gym caters for the more energetic!
Five minutes’ drive from the charming curio shops and galleries of Franschhoek village, the hotel provides complimentary transfers so guests can explore at their leisure. There are excellent village restaurants to try as well as a range of activities from horse-riding to chocolate-tasting.
Service is warm and personalized: an atmosphere of ease and relaxation pervades. Fresh produce from the garden and fine local wines create memorable dining experiences. This Winelands haven has all the ingredients for an inspiring and restorative stay.
A stone’s throw from La Residence, in a tranquil vineyard setting, five Vineyard Suites offer spacious accommodation in a variety of configurations for up to 20 guests, including children of all ages. There are stylish rooms for dining and relaxing and luxurious bedrooms with marble en-suite bathrooms. All have private terraces and gardens; four have their own pools. Complimentary drinks and snacks, wide screen televisions and DVD players create a homely feel.
Guests dine either in their suites or the central Terrace Room, beside a fire or the stunning double rim-flow pool. An open kitchen allows full interaction with the chef; the Sitting Room is cosy with bar and wide-screen television.
The Vineyard Suites offer complete flexibility, comfort and superior service to make holidaying with family and friends effortless and enjoyable.
Our entry levels suites offer a spacious 90 square meters of majestic, eclectically decorated floor space, an en suite bathroom, and private balconies with beautiful views of the surrounding estate.
With 100 square meters of opulence, these suites are as elegant as they are large. Each individually designed by Liz Biden, their interiors boast a variety of exciting ornaments and furnishings, setting the scene for an unforgettable vacation in the Cape Winelands.
Sumptuous fabrics, brilliant, jewel-like colours and magnificently over-sized furniture conspire to create a sense of sublime opulence. This is a special place with a positively palatial feel that boasts an elevated four-poster bed, high ceiling and glamorous en-suite bathroom. Curl up on the vast plum-coloured couch and enjoy a roaring fire in winter, or sit outside on the terrace in summer and soak up the beautiful mountain scenery.
Let the rich red interior of Villa 2 warm and inspire you. Fabulous swagged curtains, a high ceiling and rustic stone fireplace create a sense of homely grandeur. Downstairs is a king-sized bed with striking en-suite bathroom, complete with black and white harlequin-patterned vanity cabinets; upstairs, an inviting twin-bedded loft room with ensuite shower commands spectacular views across the valley.
Our two bedroom vineyard suite is an elegant and sociable space. Light pours into the generously sized central living area where you can watch television on the plush couch or dine in relaxed style at the glossy oval table. On either side of this space are two cosily splendid en-suite bedrooms (one king, one king or twin). These boast huge mirrors and bold, contemporary artwork. Outside there is a terrace for al fresco dining and a private pool.
Vibrant colours and a lovely openness in design characterize Villa 5. A wealth of influences is evident in the interior, creating an elegantly diverse space. Pinks, reds and oranges predominate, with plenty of interest provided by the artwork and furniture. Antique Chinese cabinets sit alongside brightly painted octagonal tables and couches in mouthwatering tangerine and raspberry velvet. Off the central living area lie two spacious en-suite bedrooms (one king-size and one king-size or twin queen-size) and a charming twin room with en-suite shower room. The terrace is perfect for relaxed dining while the pool and lawned garden enjoy spectacular views and complete privacy.
