La residence in Franschhoek (South Africa)
Amid the vineyards of the private wine estate "Domaine des Anges" lies this exclusive resort. There is anywhere and everywhere to sit and enjoy a glass of wine at La Residence.
The outdoor lounge overlooking the lake is the perfect place to watch the sun go down. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the estate peacocks.
The resort is reminiscent of a French chateau. Inside the Tuscan-style farmhouse, you can admire a variety of South African art, Victorian antiques and pop-art works. Not surprisingly, Elton John is right at home here. All suites are individually decorated with French antiques, Ralph Lauren bedding and each with its own colors and textures. All have private bathrooms, private balconies with beautiful views, free Wi-Fi.
Begin your stay with a rejuvenating treatment at the La Residence Spa and fine dining at the hotel's restaurant. True foodies would do well to ask for a personal cooking demonstration at the Chef's Table. But there is also plenty to do in the surrounding area. The hotel is located on the outskirts of the culinary town of Franschhoek. Franschhoek is considered the "food-and-wine capital" of South Africa and has several award-winning restaurants and wineries.
