Winelands, South Africa
It doesn’t take long for you to realise why La Residence has won so many awards. Decadent hallways lead to spacious suites that seem to redefine notions of opulence. Sprawling garden trails lead you to plum orchards and vineyards. Elegant antiques and exquisite features celebrate a commitment to originality.
Chic and sophisticated, La Residence in Franschhoek Valley is constantly awarded as one of Africa’s leading hotels. We definitely agree with the recognition provided by the likes of Conde Nast Traveller and Travel + Leisure Magazine, amongst others. However, we also think that this is a hotel you must discover for yourself, not through glossy photos. It’s simply unforgettable from the moment you arrive at the Great Hall.
Each of the suites has its own style, harmoniously blending colours and excelling in offering space. In particular, we love the grandeur of the bathrooms and the dreamy mountain vistas. Choose between luxury rooms in the main hotel, and very private vineyard suites that are hidden away from the world.
La Residence is an escape, surrounded by mountains in the exquisite Franschhoek Valley. It’s an idyllic base for exploring the Cape Winelands and we’d recommend it for those seeking a relaxed itinerary. A fabulous choice of house wines are included in the stay along with transfers into Franschhoek, meaning La Residence remains a good choice even if you don’t have a rental vehicle.
