Get out of the city and enjoy the simple pleasures of a country town. Can't be bothered cooking, then walk down the hill to one of the local hotels. Avoca is a goldfield town with many historic buildings but it is also a real town with a bakery, butcher, newsagent, chemist, small supermarket, post office, cafes, galleries, swimming pool and two hotels. It is within an easy two hour drive from Melbourne and forty five minutes from the provincial towns of Ballarat, Bendigo and the happening Castlemaine. Avoca is an excellent base to explore the Grampians, and the towns of Clunes and Creswick. Our local Pyrenees wineries include Blue Pyrenees, Dalwhinnie, Redbank, Mount Avoca, Taltarni, and Summerfield . These wineries have tasting rooms with open fires, picnic areas and friendly winemakers. For the energetic, it is possible to visit many of these on your bike via country roads. Upon request you can store your bike or car securely in the garage at Willyama.

Single nights can be negotiated one week ahead of required date. Minimum Booking for single nights is $200.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful old house in quiet Avoca We loved Willyama. A beautiful old house in a quiet location, but close enough to do day trips to many interesting places. We loved sitting out in the beautiful garden in the sunshine. Unfortunately the TV wasn't working while we were there but there were games to play at night. The house is very well stocked and had everything that we needed. Communication with the owner was easy and everything was just as described. Would highly recommend staying at Willyama.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Willyama is a very clean, welcoming and comfortable cottage. We had everything we needed and more. The beds were very comfortable. The garden was safe for our dog and a pleasure to spend time in. Avoca is a fantastic town. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful and the town has great history and shops and places to eat. The bushland is within metres from Willyama and has great bike riding tracks suitable for the whole family to explore the old gold mining area. Our sincere thanks go to our hosts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really cracking place to stay. The house is cosy and comfortable and the town of Avoca a fantastic place to experience rural Victoria. We had a great time in close by vineyards and nature walks. After a hard day of that, to come back and relax in the beautiful garden was a real pleasure. Cannot recommend Willyama highly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The house is lovely and comfortable. Everything we needed was here including an ample wood supply. We loved the way the house was presented - charming without being cluttered. Our little dog had a great time in the garden and we enjoyed picking oranges from the lemon/orange tree, and collecting salad greens and herbs from the garden. A great place to come with kids. Easy walk to shops, river and skate park in a lovely part of Victoria.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved Willyama- a lovely warm house with homely pictures and ornaments that made it a home. It was so relaxing to sit on the verandah sipping coffee and your eyes feasting on the lovely garden. Our little dog Cloeh could roam free with the secure fences around the property. We will visit again soon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this house (really a home!) at Avoca. It was a great base in which to do day trips to the surrounding areas such as The Grampians, Pyrenees and even Daylesford. The little touches such as lemons, apples and flowers were appreciated. Our dog loved the house so much we had to drag him away when we left. This really is a wonderful place to stay....great Butcher shop and bakery nearby and some great wineries as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Willyama is a wonderful country retreat. Our every need was catered for and we had a most enjoyable and relaxing weekend. The interior of the house is very comfortably furnished and well stocked with supplies and the surrounding gardens were quite beautiful. It was great that our dog Roxy was welcomed at Willyama and she had lots of fun exploring the outside areas. We are already planning our next visit.
