The Leeu Collection is the manifestation of the vision of founder Analjit Singh (aka BAS) for sophisticated escapes and unique guest experiences. The hospitality portfolio currently comprises three five-star boutique properties in South Africa’s winelands: Leeu Estates, a 17-room country house and boutique winery in the Franschhoek valley; Leeu House, an exclusive 12-room hotel in the heart of Franschhoek village; and Le Quartier Français, a romantic 32-room hotel including two independent villas, also located in the village. Also within the Leeu Collection’s portfolio in Franschhoek is Tuk Tuk, a microbrewery and taqueria. Partnerships in Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines and Everard Read Franschhoek complete the offering in South Africa. The first acquisition outside of South Africa was Linthwaite House, a 36-room country retreat overlooking Windermere in England’s scenic Lake District, followed by Leeu Villa Querce, a luxury hotel with pristine gardens in Florence, Italy. Both the historic centre of Florence and the Lake District are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
