Located on a working farm surrounded by mountains, this boutique hotel offers superb 360-degree views, a tranquil atmosphere, opulent rooms and excellent dining.
La Residence is surrounded by Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vineyards, olive groves and plum orchards, with a spectacular mountain backdrop and breath-taking views of the undulating countryside.
Glittering Indian chandeliers hang from the vaulted ceiling, original artwork and huge mirrors grace the walls, while the furnishings of Liz Biden are colorful, stylish and comfortable. Each of the 11 rooms (as well as the five Vineyard Suites, the totally separate family-friendly wing, located a short stroll away from the main hotel) is entirely unique but shares the same sense of opulence and, with a plethora of lavishly furnished nooks to hive off into, a decadence of space.
The Franshoek high street is a 20-minute walk down the hill, but there’s also a complimentary vehicle on call for village excursions (four minutes by car).
