La Residence, Franschhoek

After a few nights in Hermanus at Birkenhead House, it was time to head inland to Franschhoek. The wine valley! My people! We opted to stay at a property owned by the same people who run Birkenhead House – La Residence. Liz Biden is the designer at both properties and I love her style!

I spent my time lounging around on the patio doing some work, went on a bike ride around Franschhoek to go wine tasting, then came back and cooled off with a dip in the pool before an outstanding dinner in their dining room.

Here’s how they describe it on their website:

Within the category of luxury Franschhoek hotels, La Residence is in a class of its own. 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 unspoilt rural surrounds and an atmosphere of complete tranquility. Step into the main hall and be transported to a world of exquisite beauty, opulence and grandeur in this luxury Franschhoek hotel. Glittering Indian chandeliers hang from the vaulted ceiling; original artwork and huge mirrors grace the walls; furnishings are plush, colourful and stylish. Elegant antiques and exquisite flowers create a feeling of refinement and sophistication.
