La Residence

Located in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley on a private 30-acre estate, La Residence is a tranquil yet sophisticated haven.  Nestled beneath soaring mountain peaks and surrounded by vineyards and orchards, La Residence provides both serenity and seclusion. Each perfect stay at La Residence is an experience that combines elegance, grandeur and an authentic connection with the land. Glittering Indian chandeliers hang from the vaulted ceiling, original artwork and huge mirrors grace the walls, while Liz Biden's influence can be seen and felt in the pops of color. The 11 Suites in the hotel, and the five family-friendly Vineyard Suites, have each been decorated in a unique style.  La Residence provides the perfect counterpoint to the hustle and bustle of modern life, and is a place where vintage memories are made.
