Avoca is a perfect place for a country get away. Enjoy soaking up the sunshine during the day on the back deck then snuggle up by the fire in the lounge room as the light fades. Can't be bothered cooking, then put on your scarf and beanie and walk down the hill to the award winning local hotel, ‘The Avoca’ or try some tapas at the new restaurant in town 'The Albion'. Avoca is a goldfield town with many historic buildings but it is also a real town with a bakery, newsagent, chemist, small supermarket, post office, cafes and galleries. Our local Pyrenees wineries include Blue Pyrenees, Dalwhinnie, Redbank, Mount Avoca, Taltarni, and Summerfield . Blue Pyreness Winery is only 5km out of town and serves light lunches on the weekend. Their wines are well recognised “Blue Pyrenees Estate is consistently one of the best value red-wine producers in the country – to say nothing of its superb sparkling wines. The prices are a gift” Huon Hooke 17/09/2015. All these wineries have tasting rooms with open fires, picnic areas and friendly winemakers. For the energetic, it is possible to visit many of these on your bike via country roads. Avoca is within an easy two hour drive from Melbourne and forty five minutes from the provincial towns of Ballarat, Bendigo and the happening Castlemaine. Avoca is an excellent base to explore the Grampians, and the towns of Clunes and Creswick.

Single nights can be negotiated one week ahead of required date. Minimum Booking for single nights is $200.

Willyama is within a short stroll of the town of Avoca. The house provides plenty of space indoors and outside to relax and unwind and reconnect with family and friends. The wide back deck covered in grape vines is an ideal spot for a summer BBQ and the front and side verandahs provide cool spots to relax with a cup of tea and listen to the birds while gazing over the Pyrenees Ranges. The house has French doors opening onto these spaces from the lounge room, kitchen and back deck. The house is fully air conditioned so you can be assured of a good nights sleep. The main bedroom contains a queen size bed and there is another queen bed in the second bedroom. There are another two singles in the sun room.

The large separate lounge room has a lovely fireplace with a slow combustion heater. The house also has gas central heating and evaporative cooling to all rooms. The dry climate in Avoca means this is a very efficient source of cooling on hot days. The lounge contains a flat screen television, DVD player and CD player. The kitchen is fully equipped and contains an electric oven and dishwasher.
All linen is supplied. ( sheets, towels and tea towels)
This is a Non Smoking house inside and out.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful house in a great location! The house was lovely and well appointed. Beds were comfortable and house was clean. The location is brilliant, 2 minute walk to town and 5-15 mins from numerous spectacular wineries. The host (Eryn) was friendly, easy to contact and went out of her way to return an item left there after our stay. We are coming back in August and would stay no where else but here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place to stay. Beautiful heritage cottage conveniently located in Avoca - quiet centre of the "pyranees" and the excellent wine district of W Victoria. Willyama is fitted out with everything we needed for a lengthy stay. Dog friendly a bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to reviews A break from the city for my two adult daughters and I (plus our two dogs). It was a delight to drive up to see the property reflected as shown on the Stayz site. Comfortable and inviting. The rooms were spacious and clean, whilst still being cosy. The garden was a joy. Both heating and cooling worked efficiently. Absolutely wonderful Xmas break - highly recommend
