Overview of Leeu Estates

From a stately reading room to perfectly pruned gardens, and a luxurious spa and wellness centre, Leeu Estates Franschhoek offers grandeur, elegance and luxury in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Leeu Estates is within walking distance to the centre of on of the wine-producing village, which is also known as the culinary capital of the country. Just a short stroll from from your door you can enjoy exquisite food and wine in the quaint town, and further afield the famous golden vineyards and mountains of the Western Cape await your discovery.

Spending the day in is no less enticing – the luxury hotel has its own wine quarter where you are invited for a complimentary tour of the cellar and winery as well as a tasting of Mullinuex & Leeu Family Wines.
