Also within the Leeu Collection’s portfolio in Franschhoek are Marigold authentic Indian restaurant and Tuk Tuk, a microbrewery and taqueria. Partnerships in Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines and Everard Read Franschhoek complete the offering in South Africa. The first acquisition outside of South Africa was Linthwaite House, a 36-room country retreat overlooking Windermere in England’s scenic Lake District, followed by Leeu Villa Querce, a luxury hotel with pristine gardens in Florence, Italy (opening 2021). Both the historic centre of Florence and the Lake District are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
