In the heart of South Africa's bountiful wine country, retreat to an intimate French country château, at La Residence.

Enjoy total luxury in the heart of the vineyards.
Set on a 30-acre farm featuring vineyards and gardens, La Residence overlooks the mountains surrounding Franschhoek Valley, whose name ("French Corner") refers to its early settlers, but also the Mediterranean-like climate.

La Residence's eleven spacious suites and five two-bedroom villas are each themed with sumptuous color-schemed art and antique furniture to match, including the Tibetan (bright oranges) and the Armani (urbane blacks and neutrals). All suites have sunny balconies and breathtaking mountain views.

The elegant dining hall serves inventive cuisine prepared with local ingredients, veggies plucked from the hotel garden, and the best in local wines. Be sure to try the house-made bread and fruit preserves.

It's all about the great outdoors at La Residence: Swim in the pool overlooking the vineyard, go hiking, paragliding, trout fishing, or even tour neighboring wineries by horseback. If you're a foodie, be sure to sample local cheeses, considered to be some of South Africa's finest.
