Part of The Leeu Collection, the main hotel or the Auberge is the original arm of this well known five-star Franschhoek property and consists of numerous rooms for couples and families situated around a rose garden and lavender surrounded pool area. The rooms ooze comfort, sophistication and style but never stuffiness and it’s this happy ‘please put your feet up’ attitude that ensures a large percentage of return guests from all over the world.
Guests might wander into the village or any of the nearby wine estates or they may choose to spend a lazy day poolside while working up an appetite for the dinner at the award-winning on-site restaurant, La Petite Colombe.
The Four Quarters is also situated on the property and is a newer annexe featuring four sizeable (110m2) suites surrounding a central pool. These are sumptuously decorated in lush coloured silks and velvets and an impressive collection of South African contemporary art and sculptures. From a fireplace to underfloor heating, air-con and access to a DVD library, not to mention up-to-the-minute butler service, no stone has been left unturned in the quest to provide guests with a unique and decadent spoil. For guests wanting to experience something unique during their stay, a le Quartier Français cooking class is a must and for guests wanting to pay it forward, the hotel’s outstanding Isabelo scheme that feeds hundreds of local school children provides the perfect opportunity to do just that.
