Leeu Estates

A boutique hotel and world-class vineyard

In the heart of the Cape Winelands you'll find Leeu Estates – a luxuriously stylish boutique hotel set in the midst of landscaped grounds and an award-winning vineyard.

With a relaxing atmosphere and strikingly beautiful location, there's an emphasis on exceptional service and indulgence. If you crave some R&R during your South African getaway then head for Leeu Spa, a state-of-the-art wellness sanctuary offering an array of massages and holistic treatments. 

Dining is an experience here – opt for fine dining at the hotel or try one of the Leeu Collection's sister properties in the village of Franschhoek, a three minute drive or scenic 15 minute stroll away. Leeu House is a relaxed dining option throughout the day whilst you can sample snacks and craft beers at the Tuk Tuk microbrewery.

Heaven on Earth

Our time at Leeu Estate was nothing short of exquisite. It took our breath away! The location/view, gardens, sculptures & art particularly made for a very, very special home for 3 nights. Everyone who worked at Leeu Estate was attentive & kind. The breakfasts were stunning. Leaving was incredibly hard and we can't wait to return. I'll have to insist we stay longer that time :-)

Fabulous two nights stay

We spent two nights at Leeu Estates. The hotel and grounds are spectacular with breathtaking views of Franschhoek. The website does not do the place justice. Most memorable are the staff. Everyone is accommodating and friendly - no request is too much. All of the food we had from the restaurant was excellent and there is a wonderful spa in which to relax and swim, set amongst the vineyards. This is the perfect place to relax and switch off. Faultless.
