Franschhoek’s La Residence Villas in the Vineyard allow an extra degree of privacy and are excellent for families. Villas come with their own living and dining areas, terraces and gardens and have a separate communal rim flow pool and dining terrace. Villas can accommodate 2, 4 or 6 people.

The communal pool and dining area for the villas is characterised by a more laid-back atmosphere. The kitchen is entirely open-plan, allowing guests to observe and even participate in food preparation.


The Cape Winelands, and Franschhoek in particular, is populated with well over a hundred renowned wineries. Exploring this region will bring you to multiple gorgeous locations, replete with a variety of wines to taste, and pair, as well as excellent restaurants. The Franschhoek Wine Tram is a particularly good way to discover some beautiful wine estates, without having to drive. This hop-on hop-off tour is one of the best ways to do a wine tour.

Towns such as Stellenbosch and Paarl are only a short distance away; Stellenbosch’s historic oak-shaded streets are well worth a wander, and Paarl is in close proximity to some of the best wineries in the country. Famous Cape Town is a mere 45 minute drive away, and has a wide range of activities and attractions.
