Cycling and Hiking

This is a peruser’s paradise, where hikers and cyclists will fall in love with the rocky terrain and the smell of the earth under foot. Fertile ground and mountainous slopes invite you out to explore, and to challenge yourself to a round of golf in the territory of the Cape Winelands.

Tracks and trails that lead through the winelands

Whether you want to go sightseeing, shopping, or wine tasting, a lovely way to experience your surroundings is on foot and by bike. Feeling the sun on your skin and smelling the scents on the farm only add to your experience and bring every aspect to life.

There are some beautiful scenic routes that we can suggest to take in the magnificent views of the Franschhoek Valley. Biking is a wonderful way to work up an appetite for the exceptional local gastronomy, and if you’d prefer to do a one-way trip you are welcome to leave your bike securely in Franschhoek and we’ll bring you back by car.

Grand views for a game of golf

La Residence in its mountainous surroundings beckons you outdoors, and one way to truly soak up the surroundings is during a game of golf. Just a 20-minute drive from the hotel is one of the Cape’s most celebrated and scenic golf estates, located in Paarl Valley.

Pearl Valley Estate is defined by its signature Jack Nicklaus golf course – an 18-hole championship course that was designed with extensive input from the golfing legend himself, and is accentuated by ingenious challenges woven into the natural landscape.

Also in the vicinity of La Residence are Boschenmeer Golf Estate just outside Paarl, and Theewaterskloof Country Estate a little further afield.

E-bike adventures

E-bikes are the perfect middle ground for adventurers who want to cruise through the winelands and visit the village of Franschhoek with an air of effortlessness. These electric bikes are fun for a family outing, or they bring an element of excitement to a wine tasting tour.

Our concierge can assist with e-bike bookings and advise you on routes through wine estates to give you access to this electrified adventure through the winelands. Set off for the day and weave through La Residence’s surrounding vineyards and mountain pathways.
