Located in the Franschhoek winelands, La Residence offers a whole host of activities to ensure a varied and enjoyable stay. On a hot summer’s day, enjoy a cooling dip in the magnificent infinity pool or recline on a sun-lounger under a shady umbrella. Alternatively, unwind with a massage in the spa treatment room or head to the gym for a spot of vigorous exercise! There is also the option to stroll or cycle around the estate and soak up the beauty of the olive trees, vines and roses – and to admire the Franschhoek winelands beyond. When temperatures drop, curl up with a book in the library and hide away until cocktail time or sip piping hot chocolate or ginger tea beside an open fire amidst the collection of fine paintings.
If you feel like venturing out to the village, a complementary transfer service will take you to one of the award-winning restaurants for a meal to remember. A private cheese or wine tasting can also be arranged at one of the surrounding Franschhoek winelands.You can also play golf, go trout fishing or quad-biking, paragliding, hot-air ballooning or take horseback tour of the surrounding wine farms. A more sedate excursion is the horse-drawn carriage ride through the local village or perhaps a ride on the Franschhoek Wine Tram.
