At La Residence

Franschhoek is without doubt one of the most beautiful destinations in South Africa and La Residence is the ideal Franschhoek venue for weddings, private events and sophisticated soirées.

Experiences

Celebrate with us

There are few venues in the world that can rival the beauty, style and grace of La Residence. Set among 30 acres of vineyards and plum orchards with exquisite views of the mountains and valley, La Residence is the ideal venue for memorable birthday celebrations, afternoon teas, private lunches and dinners, executive events or intimate weddings.

Our dedicated events team specialises in putting together spectacular events for our guests, catering exclusively for a maximum of 150 guests (22 guests can be accommodated in our private rooms and 20 guests in our Vineyard Suites). The hotel embodies the unique combination of opulent accommodation, exceptional service, fine dining, and natural beauty.

Vineyard Venue

The Vineyard Venue is a more intimate and private event space at La Residence that can accommodate up to 40 guests. This magnificent and opulently decorated winelands venue overlooks blossoming plum and peach trees and the Wemmershoek mountains from the expansive veranda.

This warm and elegant interior incorporates plenty of natural light with a glass-fronted reception area, high ceilings, and generous windows. It is designed and styled to host special dining occasions, private events like baby showers, birthdays, and corporate functions, and it is the perfect space for a small and beautiful wedding.

Experiences

Weddings

To wed in the winelands is to celebrate love surrounded by mountains, open spaces, fresh air, and rolling vineyards. Good food and wine complete the picturesque wedding venue at La Residence, where the grounds are exquisite, the hotel itself is a work of opulent beauty, and the expert team pulling it all together is focused on making your day exactly what you dreamed of.

Whether it is a big wedding or a fairytale elopement, the La Residence events team has it covered. We can cater exclusively for a maximum of 150 guests, while our Vineyard Venue is perfect for intimate weddings, where we can host up to 40 guests. And if a secret ceremony for two is what you desire, our team will take care of every special detail.

Experiences

Proposals

Pop the question in the romantic setting of the Cape Winelands in the privacy and natural beauty of our gardens. The blue mountains of Franschhoek rise around the farm, and blossoms tumble from trees throughout the green lawns. Let the melodic songs of birds and the gentle buzz of nature set the soundtrack to your proposal.

Talk to our events team about your romantic plans and let us arrange for an intimate occasion that will stick with you forever. Sip on celebratory bubbles and savour delicious canapés in our garden Tea House, and make exclusive use of our Sunken Lounge for an evening of personalised dining and private service.

Experiences

Honeymoons

La Residence is the perfect place to retreat after your wedding and celebrate a new union of love. Explore the valley, the village, and the vineyards by helicopter, on horseback, or on a Harley Davidson. Alternatively, book yourself in for a pampering couple’s massage in the spa.

Our estate is surrounded by some of the world’s top-rated wine farms and there is so much to explore. For newlyweds, a day of farm hopping and wine tasting brings all the sense of indulgence and freedom of a celebratory holiday, sampling some of South Africa’s most distinguished wines along the way.
