From the pool-side terrace, from the various verandas and from the balconies and terraces of the guest apartments, the view is of a verdant green valley striped with rows of planted vines dramatically surrounded by towering granite peaks.
This is one place where the word "hotel" doesn't cut it. La Residence is a wine-growing estate furnished in a fashion that gives guests the impression they are the guests of a refined aristocrat.
Of all the wine regions in the world, Franschhoek is one of the most handsome and amongst the most historic. La Residence, set spectacularly against the steep face of the surrounding mountains, is ideally situated to grasp the beauty of the surroundings.
There are no rooms at La Residence. There are only apartments; each different and each jam-packed with exquisite artefacts. The fact that there are only eleven apartments in the entire complex makes it even more exclusive and desirable.
Chef Lennard Marais is in charge of providing the most exquisite dining experience for guests, offering the most personalised service to ensure that every one of his customers leaves with a smile on their face.
In step with its convincing private aristocratic estate ambience, the bar is where you want it to be. Guests can choose between the various verandas, poolside or in the winter next to the massive open fires in the main hall.
