Leeu Estates, an exclusive five-star boutique hotel property with 17 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites, takes central position on 68 hectares of vineyards, landscaped gardens and fynbos (indigenous vegetation) in the Franschhoek valley. Located between the mountainside and river, just minutes away from the village of Franschhoek, it is the ideal setting for an elegant and sophisticated private hideaway, offering superb comfort, fine dining and platinum service.
At the centre of this working wine farm is the meticulously refurbished 19th-century Manor House with its six rooms and suites. There are two rooms adjacent to The Manor House, and the remaining rooms and suites are located in spacious cottages among the gardens, oak trees and vineyards.
Le Chene Restaurant located in The Manor House at Leeu Estates with exceptional valley, vineyard and mountain views, multiple award-winning chef Darren Badenhorst, well-known as the Chef Patron of Le coin Français, oversees a talented culinary team at Le chêne (The Oak). The restaurant serves French-inspired dishes made from local produce with both the name and concept of this dining experience acknowledge Franschhoek’s history: French Hugenots settled in the valley in the 17th century, hence its name of Franschhoek which derives from the Dutch for “French corner”.
