The Church offers everything you will want for a fantastic retreat to Victoria’s premier wine growing region – The Yarra Valley.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, The Church gives you the opportunity to experience the idyllic vineyard settings, while enjoying the character of one of the area’s oldest establishments.

Originally built in the early 1900s, The Church and its pristine winery surrounds are easily accessed from Melbourne's CBD. In just one hour drive, you can escape from the hustle and bustle to this peaceful residence, five minutes north of Yarra Glen.

The Church stopped holding mass in 1996. Generations of congregates have filed through the old green doors, now a stylishly renovated one-bedroom, fully self-contained house.

Enjoy a glass of wine by the fireplace, or unwind overlooking the De Bortoli winery. However you choose to relax, The Church is a welcoming place to return.

Close to Wineries

This beautifully converted church is ideally located in the heart of the Yarra Valley wine region. The Church backs onto the famous De Bortoli Winery with its well-known restaurant, cellar door and cheese room. There are numerous other wineries within a few kilometers, including, Mandala, Sutherlands, Greame Miller and the list goes on. The Church is perfectly located for enjoying the fine wines and the great food of the Yarra Valley.

Great Restaurants

This great holiday house has more than 5 fantastic restaurants within 2kms, and well renowned eating establishments such as the Healesville Hotel are also very accessible from The Church. For those wishing to self-cater The Church is fully self contained and is a fantastic location to enjoy the views, summer days or snuggle in front of the open fire during the winter months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming Property Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming old church. Loved the log fire and the loft bedroom. Close to wineries and all the attractions that the Yara Valley has. Look forward to returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and toasty. We really enjoyed our stay at The Yarra Valley Church. Ed supplied fire wood which was fantastic! The fire kept us warm and toasty during the cold winter evenings. Everything was very clean. Towels and linen were included. Couches were super comfy. It was a great escape. Looking forward to next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique gem in the Yarra Valley We couldn't have found a better place to stay when we visited the Yarra Valley in early August. To be able to stay in an old church is something special, but add to that the gorgeous location and the accommodation/amenities and this is a place you'll never want to leave. Or at least come back to again! Ed provided very good directions to the property which took away any potential hassle of finding it. It was so much bigger than I thought, with a very spacious bathroom (heated) and fully functional kitchen. The dining room table was fit for a king (or queen's) meal and the lounge, with two sofas (including sofa bed), music and tv facilities, books, games and a fire to sit by was more than anyone should need. The bedroom is situated on a mezzanine/loft level and we couldn't have been more comfortable up there. It's a bit of a novelty to climb the narrow, spiral staircase too. We stayed during a week when it was really cold for us Queenslanders, but we had no issues once we were snugly tucked up here. In fact, it was so warm up in bed (hot air rises) that we didn't really need too much heat when we retired for the evening. Some of the comments speak of noise but I have to say that even with it's proximity to the highway and the school, I heard no ancillary noise at all. We drove all over the Yarra Valley from here, and even down to the Mornington Peninsula for the day. It's right in the heart of everything you'll need here. Our picks for places to eat - Innocent Bystander in Healesville, Hargreaves Hill Brewing Co and Ten Minutes by Tractor on the Mornington Peninsula.
