The tranquil vine yards and majestic mountains of the Franschhoek Valley, paint the stunning backdrop to the secluded retreat of La Residence. Situated on a private 30 acre working farm, with vine yards, plum orchards, a private dam and fragrant gardens, La Residence offers 11 luxuriously furnished suites, with palatial bathrooms and decorated with fine antiques, exquisite Persian carpets and an eclectic mix of objects d'art.

Space is the byword here: soaring mountain views from every suite and vast bathrooms that open onto generous sunny balconies which offer magnificent opportunities to relax, admire the view, enjoy the delicate scents of nature and marvel at the synthesis of beauty and tranquility.

At La Residence, world-class service is the order of the day. One of the downstairs rooms has a built-in marble four-poster pillared platform bed (heated in winter); there's an exotic Tibetan suite with Oriental antiques and hand painted screens; French themed boudoirs with imported antiques and mirrored dressers for glitz. Fabrics are top-of-the-range, gorgeous and themed for each interior. The dining hall and living room resembles a manor hall in checkered marble flooring with walk-in fireplaces and a four-meter chandelier, leading onto terraces with roses and a fountain for alfresco summer evenings.

Activities at La Residence include swimming, mountain and village walks, private wine tasting at various estates, cheese tasting and trout fishing. For a wine tour with a difference, hop on to a horse and visit a few of the Vignerons de Franschhoek. Those in favor of a more sedate excursion might enjoy a carriage ride through the village and to some of the wine farms. The courtyard, seating up to 120 people and with its outlook on the mountains, is the perfect venue for weddings.
