Individually styled bedrooms feature superbly comfortable beds with high quality linen, and are fitted with sisal carpets, and curtains and upholstery in natural linens, contributing to the relaxed yet sophisticated feel.

Enrica & Daniel

Leeu House was one of our favourites ever! Such a pretty location and the rooms are so beautiful we didn't want to leave! We visited the Leeu estate too which is out of this world! Definitely worth a tour of the grounds. Any art lover should visit as the owner is an art collector and has filled the estates with lovely pieces.

fantastic little spot and they own numerous restaurants and a winery; so they were able to pull strings for us.
