Leeu Estates, an extraordinary boutique hotel, is nestled amidst 68 hectares of vineyards, landscaped gardens, and fynbos (indigenous vegetation) in the picturesque Franschhoek valley. This exclusive hotel offers 23 exquisitely appointed rooms and suites, each uniquely decorated and scattered throughout the stunning surroundings of this operational wine farm. At the heart of the estate stands a meticulously restored 19th-century Manor House, housing six rooms. Adjacent to The Manor House, two additional rooms await, while the remaining rooms and suites are situated in spacious cottages amidst the gardens, oak trees, and vineyards.
Visitors who appreciate the renowned La Colombe restaurant can indulge in its sister establishment on the estate, managed by the talented team behind La Petite Colombe. Epicurean enthusiasts exploring the Franschhoek valley can now anticipate the same exceptional service and exquisite cuisine that have made La Colombe famous. The tasting menus showcase the finest local and seasonal produce, perfectly complemented by a selection of rare and exceptional wines. For a truly tantalizing experience featuring French-inspired dishes crafted from local ingredients, guests can dine at Le chêne (The Oak), a restaurant that pays homage to Franschhoek's rich history. Those seeking a more casual dining experience can discover Protégé at the Estate's sister property, Le Quartier Français, or Épice, the team's latest venture, offering an intimate fine dining experience with a curated menu of delectable dishes. While staying at Leeu Estates, guests are encouraged to visit the Everard Read – Leeu Estates Gallery, the estate's newest art gallery, as well as indulge in a day, morning, or afternoon at the Leeu Spa by Healing Earth.
