An integral part of the experience at Franschhoek’s La Residence is the elaborate and unique interior of each suite. Every suite has its own colour scheme and set of design influences, from the exotic Tibetan Suite with its oriental antiques and rich orange tones to the blue and yellow Chambre Bleu with its Provençal antiques, velvets and silks.
For families and those who seek something a bit different, Franschhoek’s La Residence Villas in the Vineyard offer a variety of configurations to suit every requirement. Enjoy the luxury of a villa for two, or share a villa for four or six. Just as luxurious but with open-plan living and dining areas and private terraces and gardens, our Villas offer a sociable and fun alternative to the main hotel.
Be enchanted by the warmth and brightness of this suite. Orange and golden yellow predominate while in pride of place is a mahogany four-poster king-size bed. Light streams in and the view stretches across the sunlit vineyards to the mountains beyond. A private veranda leads onto the garden.
Revel in regal reds and greens. Rich styling includes a king-size bed with ornately padded headboard that can be separated into twin beds. Large Chinese scrolls adorn the wall above the plush sofa. The room opens onto a veranda which looks out onto the vines and mountainside.
Stylish in white and gold, this light and airy white marble room boasts a built-in king-size bed on a heated marble plinth. The glamorous bathroom is more than a little reminiscent of Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors whilst both rooms enjoy stunning vineyard and mountain views from the spacious veranda.
Relish the vibrant pinks and greens of this suite. Signature pieces include a bright pink chaise lounge and impressive four-poster king-size bed in lime green. The room looks across the vineyards to the mountains and also has a fine view of the pool and garden from its spacious balcony.
Be transported by this oasis of oriental tranquility. Giant antique Tibetan hangings above the king-size bed (that can be separated into twin beds if required) add a touch of grandeur. Sweeping views of the vineyards and mountains can be appreciated from the private balcony.
In remembrance of the first settlers in Franschhoek, this room is decorated in wonderfully soft antique blues and yellows. The deep mustard-gold of the king-size four-poster bed is echoed by the richly-upholstered couch and armchair, while the private balcony allows you to take in the views across the vineyards to the mountains.
Relax amidst a symphony of pinks. The artwork, fine fabrics and harmonious colour palette combine to give an air of sophistication and refinement. In the bathroom, beautiful pink marble, French antiques and delicately patterned rugs complete the feel of luxurious elegance. Open the French doors and sit on the veranda to enjoy exquisite views across the lawn, down to the dam and across to the mountains beyond.
French blue is combined with hints of green to form the perfect setting for the imposing, elevated four-poster bed which is accompanied by old-world footstools to assist ascent! This suite has the luxury of two verandas, one looking across the perfectly manicured lawn to the dam, and the other surveying the olive grove and mountains.
Understated neutrals are impossibly chic: this is a modern classic. A hauntingly beautiful painting of a ballerina on one wall is balanced by furnishings in greys, browns and creams that blend harmoniously to create a mood of calm and repose. Views from the private balcony take in the lawn, the dam and the mountains beyond.
Accents of the African sun are harnessed in the brilliant yellows that enliven this suite. A king-sized bed with padded headboard is set off by vibrantly coloured African paintings. Views from both the room and the adjoining balcony take in the lawn and dam with the mountains behind.
Exotic Indian décor, antique paintings and crystal wall-sconces create a sumptuous interior that is warm, inviting and unashamedly opulent. Gold accents add glamour while the built-in bed is approached by gleaming marble steps. The room boasts two balconies, one overlooking the lawns and dam, the other facing the olive grove and mountains.
