FRANSCHHOEK, CAPE WINELANDS – PRESTIGE
The tranquil vineyards and majestic mountains of the Franschhoek Valley paint the stunning backdrop to the secluded retreat of La Residence. The property is situated on a private 30-acre working farm, with vineyards, plum orchards, a private dam and fragrant gardens.
La Residence offers 11 luxuriously furnished suites in the main house, 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 balconies, which offer magnificent opportunities to relax, admire the views, enjoy the delicate scents of nature and marvel at the synthesis of beauty and tranquility! The suites are all individually styled and decorated: one has a built-in marble four-poster pillared platform bed that is even heated in the winter; there’s an exotic Tibetan suite with Oriental antiques and hand painted screens; and French themed boudoirs with imported antiques and mirrored dressers for glitz. All have fabrics that are top-of-the-range, gorgeous and themed for each interior.
The vineyard villas at La Residence offer a unique combination of privacy, luxury and family-friendly flexibility. In their dramatic vineyard setting, they command amazing mountain views and enjoy complete peace and tranquility. All the villas are different, however they all have a private garden and patio, whilst villas 1 and 5 have their own swimming pool.
At La Residence, world-class service is the order of the day. The dining hall and living room resemble a manor hall with chequered marble flooring with walk-in fireplaces and a 4-metre chandelier, leading onto terraces with roses and a fountain for alfresco summer evenings.
Activities at La Residence include swimming, mountain / village walks, private wine tasting at various estates, cheese tasting and trout fishing. For a wine tour with a difference either mount a horse, or for those in favour of a more sedate excursion, enjoy a carriage ride through to the wine farms.
