Leeu Estate

Escape to heart of South Africa’s winelands with a stay at the fabulous Leeu Estate country house and boutique winery. With glorious views over the Franschhoek countryside, the hotel is surrounded by lush vineyards, majestic mountains and verdant fields and forests. Wander the immaculately landscaped gardens, browse through our exceptional art collection, and wonder why you have never visited before.

A room with a view

Surrounded on three sides by mountains, you can’t fail but to be impressed with the views from your room. Imaginatively designed with bespoke furniture, a soothing palette of natural tones and hues, and a textured layer of sumptuous fabrics and linens, each of the rooms have been finished with a luxurious style and individuality. Careful details, such as underfloor heating and heated towel rails, have been thoughtfully added for extra comfort.

Dining in style

Here at Leeu Estate, the Dining Room offers diners the chance to taste some truly wonderful food in the splendour of some exceptional mountain and valley views. Take afternoon tea in the light and airy conservatory, where savoury and sweet treats can be enjoyed with a taste of Leeu Estate’s own tea assortment. The Wine Studio is where you will experience some of the finest wines from the region and beyond, in the comfort of the intimate and relaxing tasting room.

Things to do

Explore the Four Quarter Vineyards which are planted with sauvignon blanc, walkways have been made for guests to get up close to Leeu Estate’s very own vineyard. Saunter through the glorious Bokkie garden, a serene and peaceful haven, or take a stroll along the river. With hidden seating areas throughout the estate, there are plenty of places for quiet contemplation. Alternatively, hire a vintage sports car, take a picnic and explore the region.

Everything you need to know before planning your dream trip

When to travel
November to February is the busiest time, but March to April and September to October are popular. Whale watchers should visit July to October, whilst May to October is a good time for safaris – it can get cold on game drives so pack a fleece.
How to get there
Your holiday will begin with a British Airways or Virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow to Johannesburg, or British Airways to Cape Town – the average flying time about 11 hours, although as there is only a 1 hour time difference there’s no tedious jet lag
