Altavilla is a luxurious and spacious fully furnished 3 bedroom self contained home surrounded by significant and tranquil gardens.
Altavilla is your all year round retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Located at the base of Mt Buller in the beautiful township of Merrijig, Altavilla is an ideal destination for families or small groups looking to take advantage of the skiing in the winter, or outdoor endeavours throughout the rest of the year.
Nestled quietly high atop the majestic manicured garden punctuated with wattles and Australian natives, the house looks proudly across to tall eucalypts and pines of Sawmill Settlement, then further up the mountain with uninterrupted views of Mt. Sterling in the North and Mt. Buller to the East. As the morning sun breaks across the ridges of the Great Dividing Range, the house is bathed in light throughout the day until the sun slowly passes behind Alpine Ridge in the evening.
Inside the house the master bedroom features built in robes and a full size ensuite with bath. The room opens out onto a raised deck that steps down to join the main deck bordering the front of the entire house. The large deck area is perfect for barbecuing, a quiet glass of wine, or a hot coffee on an icy morning.
The second double bedroom includes a queen size bed and separate walk in closet. A queen size futon sofa bed can also be made up upon request to accommodate any additional guests.
The third bedroom consists of 2 sets of matching bunks, a 2 seater couch and windows opening to the private rear garden.
Tastefully scattered throughout the house and featured in all bedrooms are original paintings by a local artist inspired by the tranquility and serenity in abundance.
Altavilla comfortably sleeps 10 guests with hotel quality white bedding and linen provided at no extra cost. Arrive, kick back and relax!
A fully equipped laundry allows you to wash and dry clothes at your convenience, and the drying room at the front of the house is perfect for storing your skies, boards and bikes after long days toiling in the sun and snow, without bringing any mess into the house.
Escape the world and leave the city behind. Whether you're looking for mountain bike riding, bush walking, skiing, snow boarding, tobogganing, horse riding, fishing, boating, or even taking a scenic helicopter flight, everything is right at your doorstep.
