Tucked away on a hillside overlooking the Franschhoek Valley, Leeu Estates offers contemporary, exclusive accommodation within one of South Africa’s most popular wine regions.

Guest accommodation is scattered between vineyards, sculpture gardens and even a field of Bokkie (Little Buck), with rooms and suites situated in a collection of cottages and houses. Cottages and houses can be taken exclusively for larger families and groups, or by the room for couples travelling.

The options range from quaint Pomegranate Cottage, a lovely one bedroom bolthole, to the three bedroom Max House, and six bedrooms within the Manor House. The Manor House is also home to the hotel restaurant - very convenient for those that overindulge! For spa lovers, the two studios located above the spa put guests within rolling distance of the massage table, as well as having wonderful valley views.

All guestrooms and suites are decorated in neutral shades, have marble en suite bathrooms, minibars and are fitted with the latest tech; TV's, wifi access and handy USB wall sockets, as well as ipads available upon request. Upgrading your room means more space, with some studios and suites offering private terraces - the perfect spot to indulge in a glass of vino from the on-site vineyard as the sun dips.

The Dining Room is open to serve guests breakfast, lunch and dinner, while a complimentary shuttle service is available to ferry guests into Franschhoek town, where they can sample the many epicurean delights. Sister hotel Le Quartier Francais in Franschhoek is also home to one of South Africa's best restaurants - The Tasting Room.
