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 and galleries. There is also an excellent swimming pool that is the perfect place to cool down on a warm summer day. Avoca 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.
Willyama is within a short stroll of the town of Avoca. The house provides plenty of space indoors and outside to relax and unwind and reconnect with family and friends. The wide back deck covered in grape vines is an ideal spot for a summer BBQ and the front and side verandahs provide cool spots to relax with a cup of tea and listen to the birds while gazing over the Pyrenees Ranges. The house has French doors opening onto these spaces from the lounge room, kitchen and back deck. The house is fully air conditioned so you can be assured of a good nights sleep. The main bedroom contains a queen size bed and there is another queen bed in the second bedroom. There are another two singles in the sun room.
The large separate lounge room has a lovely fireplace with a slow combustion heater. The house also has gas central heating and evaporative cooling to all rooms. The dry climate in Avoca means this is a very efficient source of cooling on hot days. The lounge contains a flat screen television, DVD player and CD player. The kitchen is fully equipped and contains an electric oven and dishwasher.
All linen is supplied. ( sheets, towels and tea towels)
This is a Non Smoking house inside and out.

Spent a couple of nights in this lovely cottage with our little dog. The bed was comfortable, all the services work and it was great to have a gas BBQ to cook on. It was lovely that you could choose multiple areas around the cottage to sit outside such as out back to catch the morning sun or the front porch for the sunset over the Pyrenees hills.
Our dog enjoyed the garden as there was lots to investigate and it is good that it is fully fenced.
The cottage is also within walking distance down to the shops in Avoca too, and driving distance to wonderful wineries.

A delightful house perfect for a relaxing weekend. The house is full of beautiful little nooks. We'd quite like to go back, so don't book it.

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.

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.
