Enjoy a delicious selection of seasonal produce, freshly baked goods and locally sourced charcuterie.

La Residence is surrounded by Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vineyards, olive groves and plum orchards, with a spectacular mountain backdrop and breath-taking views of the undulating countryside. Join us on the lush lawns of La Residence for the ultimate al fresco dining experience where great food and fine wines are the order of the day.

We are now offering an exclusive number of Country Picnic Baskets to be enjoyed each Saturday and Sunday. Guests are welcome to enjoy the baskets on the lawns surrounding our tranquil pond with views overlooking the Franschhoek mountains and 30 acre estate.

Collection times for picnic baskets are from 12h00 to 14h00 and the picnic area is open until 17h00. Bookings and pre-payment are essential.

Booking Your Picnic Experience

Bookings and pre-payment are essential. Contact or 021 876 4100. 

The Country Picnic Experience is weather dependant and will not take place in bad weather (raining or temperatures lower than 15°C). You will be contacted at 12h00 on the Thursday before your booking should your picnic be cancelled. A full refund will be offered to you, or alternatively another available date to postpone your booking.

Preference will be given to pensioners to utilise our Tea House adjacent to the lawns with comfortable seating. Alternatively, if not booked, it is available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Please note that our baskets may contain ingredients that contain nuts, wheat, seafood, milk, soy, eggs or other allergens.

The baskets themselves are not included and we ask that you kindly return them when you are done.  

The picnic menu is seasonal and can change depending on availability. 

To comply with social distancing, the picnic area is not serviced and a contactless card payment beverage bar is available.

Please note that access to the hotel itself is strictly for resident guests.
