The beautiful town of Mclaren Vale is the gateway of the Onkaparinga and Fleurieu wine region. It is only about a 40-minute drive from Adelaide and an 8-minute drive to some of Australia’s most spectacular beaches, making it a perfect destination for travellers or city people wanting to get away. Being only a stone throw away from the main street, there will be plenty of things to keep you entertained, as well as a scenic environment to help you relax and unwind.
‘Heart and Soul’ has been recently renovated to meet everyone’s needs and lifestyle. The generous front deck makes it easy to enjoy the regions award winning wines, while eating a delicious take away pizza from, Oscars, one of McLaren Vale’s most popular restaurants. As it is directly across the road it will be difficult to resist the mouth-watering smells coming from there
The front deck also makes the perfect place to cheer on riders during the Tour Down Under. Similarly, you could enjoy the International spectacle under the shade of the majestic gum tree in the side garden.
Also across the road you will find Hardy’s Tintara Cellar Door, The Cottage Bakery, the Almond Train, the local Hotel and the Linear walking/ bike track. There are plenty of other shops, galleries, supermarkets, cellar doors, parks/ playgrounds and cafes in close walking distance for you to experience.
Although ‘Heart and Soul’ can cater to anyone, it is perfect for families as it has plenty of entertainment for the little one’s so you can sit back and enjoy your time too.
