The French House is a luxury country retreat, custom-built in a distinctly French provincial style. The house comfortably accommodates 8 guests in a flexible configuration of king split beds, with spacious living and outdoor areas making it ideal for groups, couples or families.
The striking interior features natural materials including rustic timber beams, oak flooring, a stone mudroom and sisal carpets. Beautifully decorated and furnished to create an atmosphere of relaxed country elegance, you will instantly feel at home.
Home cooks and entertainers will delight in the fully-equipped farmhouse kitchen, dining at the 100 year-old French oak table or curling up in front of the slow-combustion wood heater. French doors spill open on a gravel terrace overlooking the par terre garden, with views to pinot noir vines and a synthetic grass tennis court. Further amenities include a heated spa and pool table. At just over an hour from the Melbourne CBD, The French House offers the perfect launching pad for those wanting to explore Trentham and the surrounding towns and hamlets of Daylesford, Kyneton, Glenlyon and more.
