Winter Wellness in the Winelands

Do the chilly days and long nights have you dreaming of being cocooned in cosy comfort? 

Treat yourself and your loved ones to a luxury wellness retreat in the picturesque Cape Winelands this winter…

Surrounded by majestic mountains, sprawling vineyards and rolling valleys, the landscape of Franschhoek in the heart of South Africa's renowned wine country is nothing short of awe-inspiring. 

The crisp countryside air promises to invigorate your senses as you leave the bustling city to explore the captivating natural splendour of the region or delve into the vibrant tapestry of cultural heritage within the charming Franschhoek village, all during this enchanting time of year. 

The flagship property of the Leeu Collection in Franschhoek, Leeu Estates offers weary winter travellers a unique opportunity to unwind, recharge and immerse themselves in both the tranquility of nature and the luxury of refined culture and hospitality. 

First order of business for any wellness retreat worth its salt? A spa day, of course! The award-winning Leeu Spa by Healing Earth on Leeu Estates invites discerning guests to take advantage of their limited-time winter offers on a range of natural treatments designed to nurture both body and soul. 

No matter how cold it is outside, spa guests will find respite in the heated indoor pool (with sweeping views of the Estates and surrounds) and steam rooms. The treatments harness the naturally nourishing properties of the spa’s unique location and idyllic surroundings, with pure and premium products made from local herbs, plants and oils. 

A particularly popular offering is the Pinotage collection of products and range of experiences, which make use of the powerful antioxidant properties of the South African Pinotage grape to defend your skin against free radicals and bestow a lasting radiance throughout the winter season. 

Vinotherapy fans will no doubt also relish in the exquisite winter wines on offer to taste and purchase at The Wine Studio on Leeu Estates. After being pampered from head to toe, why not cosy up alongside a roaring fire with a glass of South Africa’s finest red in hand? 

The expertly guided tastings on offer include the Mullineux Signature Tasting, the Mullineux Single Terroir Tasting and the Leeu Passant Tasting. Resident guests at Leeu Estates are treated to one complimentary tasting per stay. Reservations for the bespoke experience are essential. 

What better way to spend a blustery winter’s day than lost within the expertly adorned walls of an art gallery? While away the afternoon surrounded by carefully curated local work at Everard Read Gallery on Leeu Estates
