Leeu House, Franschhoek, Winelands, South Africa

Equally as exclusive as its sister property, Leeu Estates, this family-friendly 13-room boutique hotel is an oasis of tranquility and comfort.

​While it’s situated on the main street of Franschhoek Village, Leeu House still manages to exude a divine country guesthouse ambience. Perfectly located within easy strolling distance of Franschhoek’s award-winning restaurants, art galleries boutiques and other delightful attractions, its stylish interiors are a contemporary take on Franschhoek’s Cape Dutch heritage with strong French influences, and there’s a blissful garden with swimming pool and shaded terrace that’s perfect for chilling out on a warm summer’s day.​

​Innovative dining is of course the order of the day, with leisurely meals and fine South African vintages from the cellar served in The Conservatory or alfresco on the terrace. And be sure to visit Heritage Square, also part of The Leeu Collection, home to Marigold – Franschhoek’s first classical Indian restaurant; Haiku, with its modern Asian tapas-style fare; and Madira, a trendy hotspot that’s popular with both locals and out-of-towners.​
