Elton John’s South African hideout


Imagine what Versailles would’ve looked like if Elton John (rather than Marie Antoinette) had held court at the French royal château and you’d have an idea of the daring décor and design choices that make Franschhoek’s La Residence stand out from the rest. This Tuscan-style farmhouse is shot through with South Africa art, Victorian antiques, glam-rock objets d’art, and pop-art colours. No wonder it just happens to be Elton John’s favourite South Africa hideout.

The humble village of Franschhoek is regarded as the ‘food-and-wine capital’ of South Africa and boasts several award-winning restaurants and wineries. The biggest bonus? The hotel sits on the edge of this culinary capital, making it so much easier to indulge in all of its delights.

Accommodation consists of 11 individually designed Suites, each with its own colours and textures. While each suite may look different from its neighbour, they all come with en-suite bathrooms, private balconies (with stunning views!), complimentary Wi-Fi, and air conditioning. Top off your stay with a rejuvenating treatment at the La Residence Spa and fine dining at the on-site restaurant. True-blue foodies would do well to ask for a personalised cooking demonstration at the Chef’s Table.
