A Bit of History

Harald and Johanna Neumann fell in love with the picturesque Franschhoek in 2012. They decided to invest in a few houses in Franschhoek, but when they saw what is now called Residence Vive La Vie - they knew this was it! A lot of planning, building and shopping is now a dream come true, calling it ''Living life'', they want everyone who walks out the door after a relaxing stay just to 'Vive La Vie''
