Located only three quarters of an hour from Cape Town International Airport is the epitome of luxury. La Residence is situated in the stunning Franschhoek valley on a private 30-acre estate. The undulating countryside filled with vineyards, olive groves and orchards give way to the spectacular Hottentots mountain range. Flanked by the picturesque Haweqwa and Theewaters nature reserves your views here are simply breathtaking.
Retreat to beauty
To stay here is to witness decadence in all its glory and unashamedly opulence. La Residence makes no apology for the flamboyance of the suites, the extravagant decoration or the ostentatious appointments. These are exactly the reasons why you would choose such a fabulous destination.
Each suite is individual in its design and feel, and the attention to detail is remarkable. The rooms here are simply beautiful. Superb furniture, luxurious bathrooms and rustic fireplaces give a feel of homely grandeur all with wonderful views of the countryside beyond.
Centred in the heart of South Africa’s famous wine country, you could not wish to be better placed for a holiday that promises amazing cuisine and world class wines. Executive Chef Lennard Marais delivers culinary genius here. His emphasis is on fresh, local ingredients, much of which is grown on the estate itself.
Such is the importance of the food produced here. Guests often sit down with the chefs themselves to discuss tastes and preferences so that the menus can be tailored accordingly. Culminating in unforgettable plates of food.
Take it all in
Venture out from La Residence and you will find yourself in the centre of stunning countryside. The hotel offers complimentary bicycles. What better way to spend some time just pedalling around the vineyards? When you return it is time to be pampered in the lush spa, with so many exotic treatments to choose from. Before you leave be sure to take a closer look at the hotels wonderful collection of art - a true passion of the owners who love to share it with you.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
