Leeu Collection’s new boutique luxury properties
Leeu Collection is to open two new boutique luxury properties – Leeu House and Leeu Estates – in the Western Cape winelands, just under an hour’s drive from Cape Town and its International Airport.
Leeu Collection is the first wine tourism initiative in South Africa’s history by an Indian investor, namely the entrepreneurial industrialist Analjit Singh. Leeu is the Afrikaans word for lion, as is Singh in Sanskrit.
Leeu House, opening 1 December 2015 is an exclusive five-star 12-room boutique hotel. An oasis of comfort and luxury, Leeu House’s appeal lies in the fact that although it feels like a country guesthouse, it is situated on the main road in vibrant Franschhoek, within easy strolling distance of award-winning restaurants, art galleries and boutiques, as well as the village’s many other attractions.
The stylish interiors of Leeu House are a contemporary take on the traditional Cape Dutch heritage, with a nod to the French Huguenot architectural style that is quintessential to Franschhoek. Leeu House is perfectly appointed, with The Conservatory, The Terrace, The Lounge, and the serene and secluded gardens with a 15-metre heated outdoor pool, as well as complimentary use of bicycles, providing guests with plenty of opportunities to relax.
Leeu Estates, opening in 2016 is a bijou 21-room five-star boutique hotel set in 68 hectares of vineyards, landscaped gardens and fynbos (indigenous) vegetation in the valley of Franschhoek, between the mountain and river, just a 5-minute drive from Franschhoek village.
