Experience & Activities
Activities La Residence presents a host of activities to enhance your relaxation and enjoyment. Unwind in the villa’s magnificent infinity pool or visit one of the award-winning restaurants in the village. Enjoy a private cheese or wine tasting at one of the surrounding estates by appointment. For the outdoorsmen, they can arrange a round of golf, trout fishing, quad-biking, helicopter trips, paragliding, hot-air ballooning or a horseback tour of the surrounding wine farms. A more sedate excursion is the horse-drawn carriage ride through the local village and vineyards. The courtyard, with a capacity of up to 120 people and breath-taking mountain views, is the perfect venue for weddings and other functions.
 
Dining
Dining is always a leisurely experience where you may enjoy most of the culinary secrets of the picturesque Franschhoek Valley, allowing yourself to be tempted by any of the following dishes of fine flavours, diverse textures, freshest local ingredients and attractive presentation.

Everyday fare includes delights such as Salmon Trout fish cakes, imaginative salads with refreshing fennel bulbs, pickled lemons, caper berries and various crispy nuts. Celebrating the passion for regional produce, they enjoy preparing traditional venison, local fish and free range poultry.

Seasonal ingredients such as fruits, salad leaves, vegetables and herbs are harvested from the estate’s bountiful gardens. Hand crafted cheeses such as Chevin, Boeren Kaas, superb local Gruyere, drunken Pecorino and creamy Blue Cheeses are sourced and served with home-made preserves and breads from our ovens. Guests are encouraged to put forward their food preferences, allergies and dietary requirements so that we can prepare their very own special meals. All menus are complemented by the best South African wines to round off your dining experience.

Villa 1
Villa 1 is an elegant and sociable space, with soothing green décor enlivened by splashes of pinks and reds. Light pours into the generously sized central living area where you can watch television on the plush pistachio-green couch or dine in relaxed style at the glossy red oval table. On either side of this space are two cosily splendid en-suite bedrooms (one king, one king or twin). These boast huge mirrors and bold, contemporary artwork. Outside there is a terrace for al fresco dining and a private pool.
 
Villa 2Let the rich red interior of Villa 2 warm and inspire you. Fabulous swagged curtains, a high ceiling and rustic stone fireplace create a sense of homely grandeur. Downstairs is a kingsize bed with striking en-suite bathroom, complete with black and white harlequin-patterned vanity cabinets; upstairs, an inviting twin-bedded loft room with ensuite shower commands spectacular views across the valley.
 
Villa 3Sumptuous fabrics, brilliant, jewel-like colours and magnificently over-sized furniture conspire to create a sense of sublime opulence. This is a special place with a positively palatial feel that boasts an elevated four-poster bed, high ceiling and glamorous en-suite bathroom. Curl up on the vast plum-coloured couch and enjoy a roaring fire in winter, or sit outside on the terrace in summer and soak up the beautiful mountain scenery.
 
Villa 4
Villa 4 is an undeniably tranquil space: the soothing palette of blue and yellow combines with the gentle rush of the fountain to delight both eye and ear. The high-ceilinged central living room and two generous en-suite bedrooms (one with king-size bed, one with extra-king or twin queen-size beds) all have French doors leading to the private poolside terrace and lawned garden. Room 4a enjoys a tiny private courtyard complete with fountain and palms, as well as an outside shower room off its glamorous mirrored bathroom. In both bedrooms curtains of shimmering gold silk convey a sense of luxurious indulgence. An eclectic mix of old and new creates a relaxing but stylish environment, while the views beyond the palm trees that edge the garden are heart-stoppingly beautiful.
 
Villa 5
Vibrant colours and a lovely openness in design characterize Villa 5. A wealth of influences is evident in the interior, creating an elegantly diverse space. Pinks, reds and oranges predominate, with plenty of interest provided by the artwork and furniture. Antique Chinese cabinets sit alongside brightly painted octagonal tables and couches in mouthwatering tangerine and raspberry velvet. Off the central living area lie two spacious en-suite bedrooms (one king-size and one king-size or twin queen-size) and a charming twin room with en-suite shower room. The terrace is perfect for relaxed dining while the pool and lawned garden enjoy spectacular views and complete privacy.
