Local Attractions

Nestled on the beach in the heart of the famous Southern Vales wine region, the area offers the best of the coast and country and yet is an easy 45 minute drive from the heart of Adelaide.

This seaside haven is framed by the rolling Mt Lofty Ranges, offering sweeping vistas that are carpeted by verdant vineyards with splashes of olive groves.

With its protective reef shelf to the south and a broad bay on Gulf St Vincent, the area was once all about sailing ships but is now all sea change and holiday houses high on the limestone cliffs.

A variety of beach experiences are on your doorstep from the sheltered cove and surfing breaks of Port Willunga, the family friendly drive-on stretch of golden sand from Aldinga Beach to Sellicks, the fishing and divers delight of the reef, or the nudist beach at nearby Maslins.

While the green and blue gulf waters below the cliffs mean lazy days on the beach for most, the area is also a focus for diving with a unique Aquatic Reserve established in the waters off the beach to protect a rare reef formation.

This quaint village of Port Willunga is also a stones throw from the multitude of award winning wineries and renowned restaurants (such as Star of Greece, Saltbush, The Victory Hotel, The Salopian Inn and The Barn), coffee shops, galleries and antique shops that permeate the nearby Southern Vales.

As South Australia's best kept secret, the area offers the best of summer family holidays, winter getaways with wine tasting beside crackling fires, golfing,or even hang-gliding or flying for the more adventurous.

Once you have visited the fabulous Fleureu Peninsula you'll just keep coming back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable well-maintained cottage Spacious and largely well-equipped cottage where we had a pleasant short stay. Bathroom with two-way entrance was very inconvenient, especially as there was plenty of space to have two toilets and showers which would be much more usefulthan a spa bath. There were only three of us but with sleeping room for six the bathroom and single toilet would have been a big problem. Fans for the bedrooms would be welcome too as the only air-conditioner is in the living- room and it was very hot while we were there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic holiday retreat! We had a wonderful stay at Shell Cottage over Christmas. The house was spotless when we arrived and well appointed with everything you could need. Loved the spa! Both the front and back garden are beautiful - the tables and chairs in both gardens got utilised a lot! The doors were nice and thick - and while it wouldn't matter to everyone, with three small children it was great not to have to worry about creeping around when they were asleep. The house is in a great location in Port Willunga and in close proximity to the beach. All in all highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cottage was in driving distance to wineries and was quite well appointed with all you needed fro a self catered stay. Perhaps a little more firewood would be recommended.
