Our flagship property
Leeu Estates offers luxurious accommodation set in landscaped gardens and manicured vineyards.Explore
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 (opening 2021). Both the historic centre of Florence and the Lake District are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. “We are excited about the great hospitality opportunities that have become available to us in South Africa, the United Kingdom and Italy, and we look forward to making a positive contribution in each of our locations.”
In line with the South African government, and within the best interest and well-being of our valued guests, loyal staff and the community, we will be closing Leeu Estates, Leeu House and Le Quartier Français, inclusive of the restaurants and guests offerings, until 16th April. This will be reviewed regularly in line with the ever changing situation.
We are in the process of contacting guests with bookings until the 16th April and shall keep everyone updated across our social media platforms and / or email.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
