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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent accomodation and facilities We loved our stay at The French House and getting to know Trentham. The house had everything we needed and more. We cooked for 3 nights our of the four and enjoyed the kitchen and utensils that made things easier. We all loved the tennis court and spa in the back yard which we utilised daily. The location of the house was great as we took bikes and rode around the town with ease.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good a group of 6 stayed, playing golf in the area. House had everything we needed. It was clean & spacious. Maybe the gardens could do with some maintenance. In the kitchen, some small pots needed, and maybe just some standard coffee & teabags.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has potential The cleaning standards let this property down and the fact that it was so cold on arrival. Not sure why the fire would not be lit to make the home more welcoming? There is nothing worse than arriving into a cold home and it does take some time for the fire to get up enough heat to warm the place up. Love the layout and the open plan kitchen, dining and living. There are no wardrobes in the bedrooms and no ensuite. Two bedrooms in each wing sharing 1 bathroom each. One bathroom has a shower over the bath. Great welcome pack provided.
