Description

Discover this 40 acre winery located only 26km North East of Melbourne. Make it your base to indulge in the wineries of the Yarra Valley that are literally on your doorstep. Allow extra time to head in the opposite direction and experience Melbourne which is only minutes away. You even have within walking distance BrownKorte's restaurant at the entrance of the property.

Enjoy the exclusive use of this secluded luxury French provincial house and surrounds; hand crafted with mudbrick, recycled beams and polished hardwood floors. Indulge in a romantic weekend or share this private hideaway amongst friends and family. If you are looking for an intimate venue for your wedding, this idyllic setting is the perfect destination.

The first level of the villa welcomes you with an open plan living area. The lounge room's showpiece is a unique open fire that will keep you warm and cosy on cool nights. The well appointed kitchen has a gas hotplate, oven, microwave, dishwasher and butler's kitchen and overlooks a lavender garden. The dining area is set in a floor to ceiling bay window that features a spring fed dam.

A few stairs up and you are on the second floor where you will find three large bedrooms (two queen size and one single bed). Each overlooks a stunning Tuscan courtyard and a hidden underground cellar. The bathroom has a shower as well as a toilet, a pedestal basin and a claw foot bath.

Walk up a few more steps to the spacious main bedroom on the third level. It comprises an en-suite with a shower, toilet and vanity as well as a large walk in robe. Watch the sun set on your own private deck overlooking the natural spring.

To add to your comfort there is an extra toilet, a laundry with washing machine, iron and ironing board and all bed linen and towels are provided. There is a television, CD player, stereo with radio, cassette, CD and MP3 connection so you can bring your own music. Firewood is also provided. There is a total of 4 bedrooms (3 x queens and 1 x single) to accommodate up to 7 people. We also offer a late check out of 12:00.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate to say it...awful In addition to the uncleanliness of the place, it became immediately apparent that any cooking or eating there would be a challenge. When wanting to use the sugar from the sugar bowl for my coffee, the normally white substance in the bowl was black and moving, covered with ants. The smallest crumb left on the counter or floor brought in armies of ants and I would not even go into the kitchen. My husband sprayed raid for 3 days straight. Not to mention the cock roaches that we found one night. Aside from the multitude of cobwebs which hung from the high windows and ceilings in the living areas and first landing, there were also cobwebs and dirt at the top of the drapes in most every room as well as on the top of the shower stalls. The place basically didn't look like it had been cleaned in months. I would suggest strongly, also, that if you are renting this property out, that it be opened and aired before the arrival of your guests. The musty and stale odour upon walking into it for the first time was very disappointing. We communicated the above and were told that they would get the exterminator out. Unfortunately for us the trama was already done to my kids. Seeing the kangaroos and other animals were great and the property was cute but the above was just too much.

Booked this accommodation for our wedding night, the groom and groomsmen got ready here, sensational photos taken in and outside the property! Upon return our bridal party stayed the night with us... very well equipped with everything you could possibly need, very clean with spacious bedrooms with comfy beds and pillows. Could not fault our stay here, was amazing and would highly recommend, owners are very easy to communicate with! It really was beautiful, everyone commented on that! And the amazing twist chimney!
