The Vineyard Retreat McLaren Vale is a peaceful, stylish and unpretentious vineyard retreat with commanding views over South Australia’s most idyllic wine and food region – the perfect location for a romantic wine country escape.
This superb retreat is set on a fifteen acre working vineyard in a spectacular location in the heart of the McLaren Vale wine region, just forty minutes south of Adelaide in South Australia.
The Vineyard offers guests the choice of four elegantly appointed self-contained guest houses each with its own distinctive design and offering modern touches like luxurious linens, espresso machines, flat screen televisions, wi-fi and iPod entertainment docking stations. Each guest house boasts double French doors opening out on to a private verandah with ever changing views across the vineyards to the hills and valleys beyond. The property also offers a heated outdoor Jacuzzi, set on the high point to capture a view over d’Arenberg’s winery and to the ocean beyond.
Things to do
The McLaren Vale area is a haven for food and wine lovers with no less than 100 cellar doors and a gourmet food scene to make your mouth water. Your hosts at The Vineyard will be happy to share their recommendations of the best restaurants and wineries to visit. The region has a host of tracks for walkers and cyclists, including the delightful Shiraz Trail. And if you are a beach lover there are waves only 10 minutes away.
What we love
Maybe it’s just us, but is there any better getaway than one perched in the middle of a vineyard? The decor and styling of each of The Vineyard guest houses is exceptional and the view from the spa is pretty impressive as well.
