Honeymoons at La Residence
Surrounded by verdant mountains and vineyards, La Residence is the ideal honeymoon destination. Relax in style after your wedding and celebrate the start of a new life together.
La Residence was voted the No 1 Hotel in the World in the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards in 2013 and South Africa’s Best Boutique Hotel by House and Leisure magazine in 2015.
La Residence has perfected the balance between luxury and comfort and there can be few more romantic destinations in the world than the Franschhoek Valley. The surrounding mountains turn a shade of cerise pink in the evening as guests enjoy a stroll through the vineyards before a wine tasting and dinner in the Great Hall.
La Residence is surrounded by some of the world’s top rate wine estates. For newlyweds a day of wine tasting is considered mandatory – lolling from one picturesque farm to the next and sampling some of South Africa’s most distinguished wines along the way. Whether it be by helicopter, on horseback, on a bicycle or on Harley Davidsons – there is something to suit every couple.
