La Residence, Franschhoek Valley

Two nights at the luxurious La Residence, located in the beautiful Cape Winelands of Franschhoek.

Franschhoek ("French Corner"), a picturesque valley where large herds of Elephant once roamed, is where the French Huguenot refugees were granted land by the Dutch in the late 1600s. The French names of the valley's regions were offered by the Huguenot settlers who cultivated the land into farms that later developed into vineyards. Today Franschhoek is a sleepy spa & wine town by day and a glamorously-bustling gourmet capital by night. The Huguenot's heritage carries on still with the local Bastille Day festival, delectable Cabernet Sauvignons, innumerable French Provençal cuisine served in cute street-side bistros (many of which make the South African Top 100 list) and of course, the beautiful Huguenot monument at the end of Main Street.
La Residence, Franschhoek
A hidden gem in the Cape Winelands, La Residence is a luxury boutique hotel fashioned in the style of Tuscan and French Country Villas. The 11 suites at La Residence are spectacularly appointed with oriental antiquity and original South African artworks. The French-style boudoirs open to opulent bathrooms with extraordinary views of the working vineyards and towering mountains. All the living areas are open to these views of the country, where rose scent and fresh fountain air create a romantic ambiance for an unforgettable winelands experience. In the serene evenings, a fine selection of wine complements the extraordinary French Provençal cuisine of the region.
