De Leeuwenhof anno 2014

Print

The estate"De Leeuwenhof Estate", established in 1698 is now about 12 ha in total.

Situated in the Klein Drakenstein area it was previously called Palmiet Vlei and issued in 1694 to a french/dutch Hugenot called Jean Du Bois for his work for the VOC, the first Dutch multinational company in the world.

The main buildings as well as the farm part itself, have  been fully restored and an old barn and old stables have been upgraded to a 4-star guest facility in 2008 and recently beginning 2013
As the estate holds only an exclusive number of 10 rooms, 4 (self catering)  one-bedroom luxury cottages and two  apartments as well as a seasonal restaurant and two real swimming pools, one finds himself in a quiet and exclusive setting and even the most spoiled traveler will find all his needs at " De Leeuwenhof"

Drawn by adventure and driven by a quest to seek new boundaries, the nowadays owners can tell from their own experience of how one can fall in love with this ancient part of South Africa, and how one feels linked to the European ancestors who planted the roots for today's society.

On the farm there are 3500 fruit trees which are hand-picked from March until September on a daily basis, and in January and February the delicate wines are harvested.

Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cape-Riesling vineyards can be found on the farm and when asked for, every visitor gets to attend a private tour by the farmer and if one wishes one gets to ride an old tractor .

Most people really like the peace and quietness on the farm, and as we see many bird and animal life around the premises, animal and bird lovers will not be disappointed.
