Leeu Collection is pleased to announce that Leeu Estates has been featured on Travel + Leisure's It List 2017.  Leeu Estates and the other award-winning properties will appear in the March issue of Travel + Leisure and can also be found on TravelandLeisure.com.  

Every year, Travel + Leisure editors and contributors vet the most exciting debuts around the globe to create this highly selective list, which encompasses openings and major renovations from the previous year. This year, only 44 properties were included on the It List and Leeu Estates is thrilled to be one of the chosen few.

"It is a great honour to have Leeu Estates included on this prestigious list, in such good company. Analjit Singh, founder of Leeu Collection, along with the team, have brought to life the beauty and warmth of this property.  We look forward to further growth in 2017 and invite everyone to experience the magic of Leeu Estates and the entire Franschhoek region,” said Carrie Wicks, CEO of Leeu Collection.

More about Leeu Collection:

Leeu Collection’s hospitality portfolio currently comprises three five-star boutique properties in South Africa: Leeu Estates, a 17-room country house retreat 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 21-room hotel also located in the village, adjacent to Le Quartier Français the 3-bedroom LQF Villa recently opened. 

The first addition outside South Africa to the portfolio was Linthwaite House, a 30-room country retreat overlooking Lake Windermere in England’s scenic Lake District. The second is the former Collegio Alla Querce in Florence, Italy, which will be transformed into a 70-plus bedroom luxury hotel and gardens, set to open in 2021.

Complementing Leeu Collection on the main street of Franschhoek is Tuk Tuk, a craft beer microbrewery in collaboration with The Cape Brewing Company; and an exotic new culinary hub Heritage Square, home to Marigold, Franschhoek’ s first Indian restaurant.

Everard Read, Franschhoek, in partnership with Leeu Collection, is a considered space showing the best modern and contemporary works by Southern African artists. The Gallery includes a sculpture garden, interspersed with herbs and vegetables.
