You may seek a romantic getaway, a relaxing retreat, or a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. This hotel promises to exceed all your expectations. Read on as we take a closer look at this property.


La Residence Franschhoek is a South African jewel. It is the perfect place to stay. In one of the most stunning wine regions in the world, this hotel is nestled among vineyards and landscapes. This review explores the various facets of this hotel. It includes breathtaking architecture, interiors, exceptional service, gastronomy, and experiences.

La Residence is in Franschhoek Valley of the Western Cape. This scenic area is popular for wine-making and has great views. The Royal Portfolio includes this hotel and a number of luxury hotels in South Africa.


This area is the only Winelands town that retains its picturesque old-fashioned streetscape. And it is surrounded by mountains. La Residence sits on a 30-acre property in a narrow valley. It also offers views from all angles of the mountains, vineyards, and orchards. Moreover, a 20-minute stroll will take you to the high street. A car is also available for free village tours. The bicycle is another way of getting around. Vehicles will pick you up if you get tired.

Architecture and Design

Liz Biden is the owner. Her collection includes antiques of all kinds. This includes textured fabrics. They are rich. There are colorful artworks and black and white Victorian tiles. Also, there are Persian carpets. There are also mirrors with gilt edges, ornate lamps, and vases. All the rooms and five Vineyard Suites located in a separate family-friendly wing just minutes away are unique. However, they all share a sense of luxury and decadence. This is a romantic atmosphere where honeymooners and empty-nesters are both treated equally.

La Residence is a place of elegance and luxury. The hotel's architecture blends French elegance with South African traditions. This mix creates an intimate atmosphere. The 30-acre estate also features beautiful gardens and water features, not to mention views of mountains and vineyards.

Also, every suite in the hotel's central building is decorated differently. A different theme or locale inspires each. The use of antiques, artworks from all over the world, and delicate fabrics and textiles contributes to a sense of exclusivity and luxury. Five Vineyard Suites are available in addition to the central hotel. They offer more privacy and extra space for groups or families.

Service and Facilities

La Residence offers unbeatable service. The professionals are committed to ensuring guests enjoy an unforgettable experience. The hospitality offers genuine warmth and personalized attention. They will also meet all your needs discreetly and efficiently. The staff can provide helpful advice on how to enjoy the Valley.

Edward Morton is a General Manager who pays attention to detail. He has a warm, genuine personality, and he knows the villages. This dedication, plus his village knowledge, helped La Residence keep its position. It is one of the most prestigious hotels in South Africa. Liz Biden also deserves praise for this fine art of balancing the guests' need to feel relaxed and comfortable while still being pampered. It's an attribute that is unique to her staff at Portfolio.

Several facilities are also available, including a spa and swimming pool (with a view). Bicycles, fitness equipment, walks on the farm, and wine tours are also available.


All 11 rooms, as well as the 5 vineyard suites, are individually designed. The two categories of hotel rooms are huge. The Superior rooms tend to be larger corner rooms and have the same amenities. They include a variety of teas, snacks, Nespresso coffee, and a large selection of gourmet foods.

Minibars have wine or champagne at no charge. All rooms have air-conditioning and a TV. An iPod docking system is also available on request. The bathrooms are equally significant and opulent. However, the toilets do not have separate stalls. The Vineyard Suites are a good choice if you don't have children.


La Residence's dining is an experience to remember. Hotel chefs use fresh ingredients from the Franschhoek Valley to prepare seasonal menus. This reflects the local culinary tradition. Moreover, the formal dining room allows guests to enjoy their meals. They can also dine al fresco in front of the terraces or even in the privacy and comfort of their suites. Besides, the wine list includes wines from around the world.

The Great Hall is the place to eat in winter. You can also dine alfresco at the Persian Alley with a view of the pool or mountains in the summer. Those staying at Vineyard Suites can head to the restaurant. Breakfast includes a variety of fruits, cheeses, and freshly pressed juices. The cooked menu, however, is the most interesting. There are many dishes to choose from. This includes smoked kudu, scrambled eggs, exotic mushrooms, and tomato compote with truffle oil. This is not only delicious, but it's also unusual.

The dinner menu is four courses with three to four choices of starters or mains. If the option is available, order it.

Activities and Experiences

La Residence offers a range of exciting activities that will immerse you in the rich culture of Franschhoek. But it is essential to take wine-tasting tours in neighboring vineyards. This way, you can experience world-class wines from the area. The hotel can arrange guided hikes, cycling, and horseback riding tours.
