The brand new Leeu House is the latest boutique offering in Franschhoek. With just 12 rooms, each finished in a slightly different way, Leeu House is the epitome of understated luxury. The stylish interiors are a contemporary take on Franschhoek’s Cape Dutch heritage with its strong French influences.
Leeu House’s special appeal is lies in the fact that it feels like a country guesthouse even though it is situated on the vibrant main street of the village, within easy strolling distance of award-winning restaurants, art galleries, boutiques and many other attractions.
Found on the main street of Franschhoek, Leeu House is within easy walking distance of the town’s restaurants, art galleries, boutique shops and much more, while providing an oasis of calm to retreat to.
