A relaxing and rewarding way to spend a few hours is a visit to Leeu Estates, a five-star getaway ensconced in 68 hectares (168 acres) of landscaped gardens, manicured vineyards and indigenous fynbos in the Franschhoek valley, and to take a guided tour of the gardens interspersed with artworks. The tours provide an opportunity to connect with art and nature in serene and meditative spaces with exceptional views.
Analjit Singh, the Leeu Collection’s founder, is a keen gardener, and the gardens or ‘Leeuscapes’ at Leeu Estates have been meticulously designed and landscaped. Art has also been a lifelong interest for Analjit. He personally curated the collection at Leeu Estates, which features predominantly life-sized bronzes by Angus Taylor, Deborah Bell, Dylan Lewis and Otto du Plessis, among other well-known, mainly South African artists. Each sculpture has been strategically placed between the pristine lawns and rows of hand-tended vines to be shown to its best advantage.
