The breathtakingly beautiful Franschhoek Valley is renowned as one of the world’s great food and wine destinations. Settled by the French Huguenots in 1688, it has retained its Gallic charm and character. At the heart of the valley is the romantic village of Franschhoek, with its award-winning restaurants, art galleries, boutiques and many other attractions. Within easy driving distance from Franschhoek, one can enjoy the pristine beaches of the Cape, play a round of golf or experience some of the best land-based whale watching in Hermanus.
ABOUT THE LEEU COLLECTION
The Leeu Collection is the manifestation of founder Analjit Singh’s vision for sophisticated escapes and unique guest experiences. The Leeu Collection’s hospitality portfolio comprises three five-star boutique properties in South Africa’s winelands: Leeu Estates, a 17-room country house and boutique winery in the Franschhoek valley; Leeu House, an exclusive 12-room hotel in the heart of Franschhoek village; and Le Quartier Français, a romantic 32-room hotel including two independent villas, also located in the village. The first acquisition outside of South Africa was Linthwaite House, a 36-room country retreat overlooking Windermere in England’s scenic Lake District, followed by Villa Querce in Florence, Italy, a luxury hotel and pristine gardens (opening 2021). Both the historic centre of Florence and the Lake District are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Complementing the Leeu Collection are two ventures on the main street of Franschhoek: Tuk Tuk, a craft beer microbrewery in partnership with the award-winning Cape Brewing Company team, serves bespoke brews and Mexican-inspired food; and an exciting culinary hub, Heritage Square, is home to Marigold, Franschhoek’s first authentic Indian restaurant.
The Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines partnership has been an exceedingly successful one. The winery has notched up an impressive number of five-star ratings from Platter’s South African Wine Guide and was named the guide’s Winery of the Year for 2014 and 2016. Prestigious US magazine Wine Enthusiast named co-owner Andrea Mullineux its 2016 Winemaker of the Year.
