Luxury Holidays At La Residence

Nestled in the tranquil Franschhoek Valley, La Residence enjoys an idyllic location in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Featuring its own thirty-acre working farm – complete with vineyards, plum orchards, a dam and fragrant manicured gardens – much of the fine dining produce (including the wine) is produced on the property. Characteristic of all properties within the resplendent Royal Portfolio, guests can surrender to highly personalised service, sublime cuisine and spectacular suites, while all rooms and suites are uniquely designed to incorporate unusual antiques and sumptuous soft furnishings. Options include the white marble Frangipani Suite, the exotic Tibetan Suite or the romantic French boudoir-style Chambre Suite. There is also a selection of glamorous villas, some with private pools, set slightly away from the main property in the vineyard. Each is individually decorated and perfect for families with children of any age, though only children over 12 years are permitted at the main property.


Property Highlights



With a stunning mountain backdrop, rolling countryside and distinct aura of tranquillity, La Residence is the perfect spot for couples seeking a romantic stay. Surrounded by verdant vineyards and plum orchards, there is luxury, opulence and sophistication in the tasteful antique furnishings, glittering Indian chandeliers and refined furnishings found in the public areas and eleven guest suites. Couples can luxuriate in the spa, sample the finest wines and drink in the spectacular scenery, with eleven individually designed suites that are ideal for couples. To enhance the peaceful ambience, no children under 12 years are permitted to stay at the main hotel (though they may stay at La Residence's villas, set away from the main hotel).

Dining & Gourmet

Dubbed the gourmet capital of South Africa, Franschhoek and the surrounding area offer some of the country's top-rated restaurants. Guest can sample locally inspired, artisanal produce, or try out French-influenced cuisine at top eateries in town or on the wine estates. Interactive cooking lessons are available at the nearby Leopard's Leap wine estate and sweet treats can be tasted at Huguenot Fine Chocolates. In addition to the exceptional food served in the restaurant, La Residence offers curated chocolate and wine pairing experiences.

Hotel Experiences

The Western Cape boasts over 800 wine estates, with several premium practitioners around Franschhoek. These include world-renowned growers such as Chamonix, La Motte, Grande Provence, Rupert & Rothschild, Holden Manz and Mullineux & Leeu. La Residence offers innovative ways for guests to conduct wine-tasting via helicopter, car, bicycle, horseback, or even on the back of a Harley Davidson! The famous Franschoek Wine Tram is another option, while La Residence grows its own Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes on the thirty-acre farm.

Hotel Experiences at La Residence

Spa Breaks

Guests can end a day exploring the vineyards with a spot of pampering at The Spa at La Residence. Two in-house spa therapists offer an array of indulgent experiences with signature treatments inspired by South African grapes, such as the Pinotage Body Polish. Massages can take place in the double treatment room, the privacy of a suite, or in the Tea House when the weather permits. A well-equipped gym is available at the hotel, and La Residence's award-winning chefs can create healthy meals at guest's requests.
