La Residence, Franschhoek, Winelands, South Africa

A unique combination of privacy, luxury and family-friendly flexibility. A bouquet of fresh lavender greets you. The ultra-extravagant décor hits you as you enter your room – no wonder Elton John loves it here!

​Wine, dine and forget about all your troubles at La Residence, where you’ll be greeted by a fairytale vineyard setting, complete with idyllic mountain views on all sides, avenues of blossoming fruit trees and juicy grape vines, and a countryside villa of rustic perfection.

To say a stay at La Residence is an assault on your senses is an understatement! Franschhoek is the gourmet capital of South Africa, but the food at this hotel is so good, you may well not want to try anywhere else.

If you enjoy cooking and want to take a little piece of La Residence home with you, you can enjoy your own personalised cookery demonstration, assisting the Executive Chef at the Chef's Table, prepare your own dinner course by course, taste as you go and learn some culinary secrets. It's an unforgettable experience! ​
