There are many lovely guesthouses in Franschhoek but what makes the Leeu stand out are its owners, Frank and Ruth and their team. Not only do they make you welcome, but they see to your every need, booking up restaurants, recommending the best wineries to visit, suggesting walks...
ACCESS & LOCATION:
We recommend the Leeu as a great option for Franschhoek as it is an ideal base for exploring the Winelands.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
In the classic Cape Dutch style, Leeu House offers 12 luxurious rooms, each one decorated in the same neutral palette with touches of gold and bronze. The rooms are elegant and feature artworks personally selected by the owner. The owner also purchased the two neighbouring properties in order to provide Leeu House with a large pool and garden.
Delicious breakfasts are served in its country kitchen style dining room and its new restaurant, Ryan's Kitchen, serves contemporary South African meals. Franschhoek's numerous other restaurants, bistros, shops and museum are just a few minutes' walk away/within a short stroll. With numerous top-rated restaurants within walking distance and being located in Franschhoek, we highly recommend spending as much time as possible indulging in the food and wine of this region.
