Built in 1910, Villa Maria is an elegantly proportioned villa that has been tastefully refurbished with all modern conveniences. The villa offers three comfortable, luxurious rooms, each with ensuite. A fourth couple can also be accommodated.
Located in one of the truly historical precincts of Tanunda, the house is only metres from Goat Square, Zeigenmarket the site of a mid 19th century farmers market, and original town centre of what became Tanunda, where many of the town’s oldest dwellings remain in well-maintained original condition.

This old Lutheran Church, built in the 1880s stands on the site of the original 1846 church built by pioneer Pastor Kavel’s Silesian parishioners. Villa Maria is situated deep in the heart of old Barossa.

Tanunda’s main thoroughfare Murray Street is as cosmopolitan as it gets in the Barossa. Don’t expect flashing neon, but do anticipate a choice of several great cafés, bakeries and highly regarded restaurants. Tanunda is also a great central place to base yourself as you embark on an exploration of the Barossa’s amazing vinous and culinary adventures.
On returning to your lodgings after a day of wine tasting, Tanunda township offers opportunities to unwind as you mosey along Murray Street, lingering in classy boutiques such as Alabaster Store, Ironstone Cottage or one of the state’s great remaining bookshops, Raven’s Parlour, where enthusiastic staff will happily make holiday-reading recommendations.
And then out for a special dinner. New restaurants such as Musque and old favourites 1918 and fermentAsian provide culinary excitement and a celebration of locally grown ingredients and special bottles of wine.
Within an easy walk of this cultural hub, Tanunda’s newest luxury accommodation facility, Villa Maria represents an obvious choice.
After arising from an invigorating luxury slumber and whilst deciding which wineries or local markets to visit during the day, you might enjoy cooking up the contents of Villa Maria’s breakfast basket. These include rashers of Barossa smoked bacon, fresh free-range eggs and wood-fired bread from Apex Bakery. Continental breakfast options such as muesli and cereal are also supplied. A Nespresso machine will provide an immediate pick-me-up, whilst those craving a more serious solution to their morning caffeine cravings can wander down to Murray Street and slake your thirst at a number of fine coffee providores including Darling’s Food with Passion Café and Keil’s Fine Food with Coffee.
