La Residence


The fertile valley of Franschhoek nestles between towering mountains in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Tucked away in the tranquil vineyards of the Franschoek Valley, the private wine and olive Estate of Domaines des Anges paints the stunning backdrop to the secluded retreat known as La Residence.

Designed along the lines of a French Country Château, La Residence offers luxuriously furnished suites. Each provides the ultimate in old-world luxury, decorated with treasures such as fine French antiques, exquisite Persian carpets and delicate Ralph Lauren bed linen.

Expansive patios offer magnificent opportunities to relax, admire the view, enjoy the delicate scents of nature and marvel at the synthesis of beauty and tranquillity. Alternatively, those guests seeking privacy can enjoy the cloistered courtyard with a private pool. A separate home movie room and private library add to the secluded splendour of the villa.

At La Residence, world-class service is the order of the day. Guests are provided with a private butler, a private chef and a chauffeur with car on hand.

The regal master suite is for those seeking the pinnacle of luxury during their romantic getaway. It provides a study and private balcony, his and hers dressing rooms, a palatial bathroom and panoramic 360 degree views of the surrounding Franschhoek Valley.

Explore this quiet haven on your honeymoon, where time is only measured by the seasons and the colours of nature's palette paints the land in a myriad of ever-changing hues.
