Leeu House is a country guesthouse offering luxury accommodation and attentive service in an attractive setting along Franschhoek’s main street. Contemporary artwork, neutral colours and tasteful décor merge beautifully with the building’s Cape Dutch heritage. 13 well-appointed rooms are individually styled and boast private gardens or terrace courtyards. Culinary masterpieces are created using the freshest organic produce and served in the conservatory, or al fresco on the terrace. Guests may make use of the gym, spa and trails at sister hotel, Leeu Estates, or cool off in the pool during summer months. After a day exploring all the Winelands has on offer, relax on manicured lawns and shaded terraces or sip fine wines around a blazing fire as the day draws to a close.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
