About This Accommodation

Leeu Estates is an exclusive boutique hotel and winery set among vineyards, gardens and fynbos in the scenic Franschhoek Valley, one of the world’s finest food and wine destinations. The entire property is 168 acres and is just minutes away from the vibrant village of Franschhoek and under an hour’s drive to Cape Town.

Positioned between the mountainside and river, Leeu Estates offers superb comfort complemented by fine dining and excellent service. The focal point of this working wine farm is the refurbished 19th-century Manor House with its six guest rooms, dining room, library and living room. Adjacent to the Manor House is Amala Spa & Gym, for which two guest rooms are located. Six spacious cottages (1-3 rooms per cottage) are situated among the gardens, oak trees and vineyards. The cottages are great for families, or groups of friends or couples traveling together as you can book a cottage exclusively. Each room on the property offers vineyard and mountain views, beautiful architectural detailing, and the latest technology.

This is a great place to stay if you're looking for a leisurely way to enjoy the Winelands. The impressive sculpture garden will keep you well entertained as you stroll through the grounds. In addition to the complimentary wine tasting on premise, there are river, mountain and vineyard nature trails for hiking, jogging or cyling, as well as the use of bicycles. Complimentary transfers to sister property Leeu House are available on request. Leeu House is set in the village of Franschhoek with its award-winning restaurants, art galleries, boutiques and many other attractions.
