Home to a slew of stylish guesthouses, top-drawer restaurants and picturesque wine estates, the exclusive Winelands town of Franschhoek is a sought-after destination for those seeking a getaway laced in luxury.
And now, you could experience the true magic of the valley with a stay at the classically elegant Leeu House or Le Quartier Français.
Two of a kind
Part of the notable Analjit Singh-owned Leeu Collection, which includes three boutique hotels and three of Franschhoek’s top eateries, Leeu House and Le Quartier Français are primely positioned on Franschhoek’s main road, within striking distance of excellent restaurants, galleries and boutiques.
Le Quaf (as it’s affectionately known) is a sumptuous, central and sophisticated stopover, where contemporary art, vibrant interiors, and a clutch of 32 beautiful rooms await. And, in addition to Protégé, the casual fine dining restaurant, the hotel is also home to the famed La Petite Colombe restaurant.
Leeu House, right next door, oozes historical charm, with a pared-down colour palette, a smaller selection of rooms, and the perfect mix of modern amenities with a classic, elegant feel. And, if you’re feeling hungry, Epice, the newest iteration from chef extraordinaire Scot Kirton, is footsteps away.
Both properties feature pools set in manicured gardens with mountain views, utterly sumptuous breakfasts, and complimentary shuttle services to ensure you can make use of sister property Leeu Estates’ Leeu Spa. But it’s the exceptional service, stylish decor, and luxe comfort that truly sets these spots apart.
