Leeu Collection acquires world-class Le Quartier Francais
Le Quartier Français in Franschhoek, will be taken over by Analjit Singh of Leeu Collection and his family as new owners. Located in the centre of the village yet tucked away in its own sprawling private gardens, it offers guests both privacy as well as proximity to all the village has to offer.
Award winning Executive Chef Margot Janse will also see to it that the magic continues at The Tasting Room with her cutting edge cuisine. She, along with the rest of the Le Quartier Français team, will ensure that the exceptional service and experiences continue to charm guests from around the world. Where diners have the opportunity to experience her unique eight-course, African-inspired surprise tasting menu: a true journey of taste that continues to evolve. The Tasting Room creates a dining experience unlike any other; one where surprise and nostalgia take centre stage.
This latest acquisition forms part of Leeu Collection, the manifestation of owner Analjit Singh’s (aka BAS) vision for sophisticated escapes and unique wineland experiences, which comprises in the first phase, Leeu Estates, a 21 room, five-star luxurious boutique hotel and winery in the Franschhoek valley, and Leeu House, an exclusive and private five-star 12-room boutique hotel in the heart of the Franschhoek village, set for a phased opening from the last quarter of 2015.
