La Residence
Elandskloof Private Road
Elandskloof Farm
South Africa
As its name suggests, South Africa's Franschhoek ("French Corner" in Dutch) is a picturesque village whose laidback cafe culture has a distinctively French feel. Full of character, Franschhoek is distinguished by its fine colonial architecture, numerous gourmet restaurants, art galleries and curio shops.

Hotel Overview

Located in the beautiful Franschhoek valley at the heart of a private 30-acre estate, this is a haven of luxury on every level. Surrounded by vineyards and plum orchards, with a stunning mountain backdrop, La Residence enjoys breathtaking views of the unspoiled rural surrounds and an atmosphere of complete tranquility.


An integral part of the experience at Franschhoek's La Residence is the elaborate and unique interior of each suite. Every suite has its own colour scheme and set of design influences, from the exotic Tibetan Suite with its oriental antiques and rich orange tones to the blue and yellow Chambre Bleu with its Provençal antiques, velvets and silks.

For families and those who seek something a bit different, Franschhoek's La Residence Villas in the Vineyard offer a variety of configurations to suit every requirement. Enjoy the luxury of a villa for two, or share a villa for four or six. Just as luxurious but with open-plan living and dining areas and private terraces and gardens, our Villas offer a sociable and fun alternative to the main hotel.


A Luxurious Spa at La Residence in Franschhoek allows you to indulge in an array of pampering procedures - either in the tranquil, air-conditioned double treatment room or in the privacy of your own suite or balcony.

La Residence has two in-house therapists for our Franschhoek spa treatments, but also uses a network of highly qualified outside therapists to deliver luxurious massages and beauty treatments using Dermalogica skin products. Signature La Residence spa treatments include the Swedish Massage, specifically designed to relax muscles, stimulate circulation and increase muscle tone. Perfect after a long-haul flight! Or try the tension-releasing Deep Tissue Massage to ease stiff necks, lower back tightness and sore shoulders. When the weather is fine, massages and other Franschhoek spa treatments can also be enjoyed in the open air in the Tea House overlooking the main dam.
