The Lot Summary
This package in this Lot is a gastronome’s delight and will see two couples enjoying two nights in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley staying at the The Royal Portfolio’s Franschhoek hotel, La Residence, which was voted best hotel in the world by Condé Nast Traveller. Located on a private 30-acre estate, La Residence sets the benchmark for luxury accommodation in the Cape Winelands. This lot is all about experiencing Franschhoek’s intimate and award-winning food scene as two couples get to taste their way through the menus of some of Franschhoek’s leading eateries.
