Luxury in the heart of the Winelands

Leeu House, part of the Leeu Collection, is a stylish boutique hotel close to the quaint town of Franschhoek and just an hour and thirty minutes drive from buzzy Cape Town

The exclusive 12 bedroom hotel is surrounded by lush vineyards, rolling fields and mountainous peaks – we recommend borrowing a bike to explore your surroundings at your leisure. 

The Franschhoek Valley, with its Cape Dutch heritage and strong French influences, is renowned as one of the world’s finest food and wine destinations and dining is a real highlight here. The hotel's world-class chefs have created a unique menu and all meals are accompanied by a curation of fine South African wines including the estate's vintages. Visit Le Quartier Francais, a sister property of Leeu House, and eat at the renowned Tasting Room restaurant for more fine dining. Or, if you're looking for a more relaxed style, try the tapas dishes at the nearby Tuk Tuk craft brewery. 

Stay at Leeu House and you'll be just a short stroll from delightful shops, cafes, art galleries and restaurants.

  • Cool off in the heated swimming pool in the gardens
  • Savour the fine dining experiences on offer
  • Located in the heart of charming Franschhoek
  • Complimentary bikes available to use during your stay

Lovely property

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

We stayed at Leeu House for 3 nights - the hotel is lovely and the location right on the high street in Franschhoek is great. The staff we extremely helpful/friendly, the room was very nice although we were woken early every morning by people cleaning the lobby area as our room backed on to it. The shuttle service is very helpful to get around to the close-by vineyards.

Heaven on earth

Rotherham

This is the most fabulous place to stay - a beautiful boutique hotel on the main street in Franschoek. We stayed 2 nights as a party of 4 touring South Africa celebrating a special birthday, purposely to visit the winelands. It did not disappoint I only wish we could have stayed longer. We unanimously decided on our return that this has to be the best hotel by far. Perfectly situated, beautifully appointed rooms, attention to detail is phenomenal. The personal touches made our stay memorable. The most comfortable beds with linen to die for and the bathrooms were a delight. Spotlessly clean and very spacious. The staff were friendly very efficient and a delight to chat to. We ate in the Protege Restaurant on the first evening and Reubens on our second evening - both excellent choices and easy to stroll to - returning to Leeu House for a night cap in their lovely lounge area. We managed to spend a couple of hours round the beautiful pool - a must if you have time. Breakfast was delicious especially eaten outside with breathtaking views of the mountains. Heaven on earth - we loved Franschoek and your hospitality - will definitely return.
