Serene lakefront wine retreat in Franschhoek Valley

12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 6 baths
Find a Winelands idyll at The Residence at Vrede en Lust. Tucked into the picturesque Franschhoek Valley on the 330-year-old Vrede en Lust Wine Estate, this vacation rental is a sophisticated retreat in a gorgeous rural setting. Spend your holiday exploring the area’s golf courses, spas and galleries—or board the region’s wine tram and find your new favorite vintage.
Your stay at The Residence includes housekeeping service, breakfast and a complimentary wine tasting at Vrede en Lust. Watch the sun move across the surrounding hills from private outdoor living areas with a swimming pool, lounging and dining furniture, a bar, a barbecue and a sound system, then linger after sunset around the firepit. Or enjoy indoor amenities ranging from a gym and office space to a streaming TV, sound system and Wi-Fi.
The outdoor spaces connect seamlessly with interiors whose architectural charm and comfortable furnishings create a feel of laid-back luxury. With several sitting areas, a dining table that seats twelve and a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar, you can spend a quiet moment reading or reconnect with the whole group of friends and family over a meal.
The Residence has four bedrooms with king beds, including two honeymoon-worthy suites with their own lounge areas and balconies. The other two bedrooms have two twin beds each. All six bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning.
With Franschhoek only a 10-minute drive from the villa, it’s easy to spend the day touring the area’s galleries, teeing off at nearby golf courses or indulging at a range of spas. For something a little wilder, make the 10-minute drive to Drakenstein Lion Park. Of course, you can always take the Franschhoek Wine Tram, which has a stop at Vrede en Lust, and see the area without having to drive at all.
