Not only has Liz Biden transformed Birkenhead House and Royal
Malewane into South Africa's most sought-after private hotels, but
she has performed the same trick with her private country residence
hotel, La Residence in the Cape Winelands. And whilst this
much-loved hideaway was generally considered a work of art, last
year La Residence was redesigned and even relocated, now standing
600 metres away from its original location on a private 30-acre
estate in the Franschhoek Valley. The brand new villa at its heart
has been built in the same regal Tuscan style as its predecessor,
yet this time it houses eleven ultra-luxurious suites, each one
conceived by Liz's masterly interior designer Ralph Krall. Yet just
as it was before, the pace of life here is deliciously slow, doing
a lap of the swimming pool about as energetic as it ever gets. The
cuisine, of course, is still sublime; the service about as
attentive as it gets.
