An exquisite new hotel on a wine estate, soaked in the atmosphere of the Franschhoek Valley. Among vineyards and manicured gardens, ringed by craggy Cape mountains, you are perfectly placed to enjoy gourmet food at Leeu Estate and in the village – and to appreciate art. Dozens of edgy, contemporary sculptures by South African sculptors adorn the green gardens.
On the gracious Leeu Estate you can wander along paths in the landscaped gardens and Sauvignon blanc vineyards, taste wine in a relaxed ambience at the winery, swim in one of two beautiful pools and enjoy the spa and gym, just a few minutes from the gourmet heart of the Winelands – Franschhoek village.
Elegantly minimalistic rooms with a sophisticated yet natural feel look out over the beauty of the estate, the Dassenberg mountains and Franschhoek village. The rooms feature superbly comfortable beds with high quality linen, sisal carpets, linen upholstery, en-suite bathrooms with marble floors, free-standing baths and generous showers, underfloor heating and heated towel rails. Some rooms are found in the Manor House, others in cottages or the charmingly gabled Max House.
Franschhoek is all about refined country lifestyle and gourmet delights paired with great wines from the valley. Indulge in long leisurely meals in the Dining Room at Leeu Estates with views over the gardens and vineyards, where Executive Chef Oliver Cattermole creates innovative cuisine from organic produce expertly paired with the right wines. Taste more of his arts at The Conservatory in Franschhoek Village. Continue your gourmet explorations at the Tasting Room at Le Quartier Français (to be closed over the southern winter 2017 to make way for the illustrious La Colombe with the retiring of the famous LQF chef Margot Janse).
