Great place to relax and unwind.. So peaceful if you want to have a break from the noisy world..you are stepped out to the nature of birds and other wildlife. Lovely friendly people who owns the place.. Love the spa and the fire.. Will come back again.

We stayed here for 3 days in November, having spent time there the previous year. Paul and Sue live on the premises and are totally amazing, but respect your privacy totally. (Gay friendly too) The rooms are beautiful, especially the four poster bed and the beautiful fireplace in winter. The views are spectacular and the breakfasts that you can cook... More

First impressions on driving into this place were that the gardens and verandahs needed a good tidy up. However the room was spotless and well appointed. The location is very quiet and the views relaxing. Homemade bread was a nice touch. It would be a lovely place to stay in winter when the wood fire could be used.

I will just echo the other reviewers - lovely property, in great position to allow you to explore from the McLaren Vale to Port Victor and beyond. Such a lovely building - the rammed earth walls give such a restful feel. The room was large, airy, quiet and well equipped. Regards eating, I would suggest buying provisions and BBQ yourself...

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Roman Villa in July 2013 and we were very impressed. We were greeted by a friendly Sue when we arrived and found the accomodations in our villa to be top notch. There is an excellent wood firebox which heated the room perfectly, and plenty of spare wood and kindling provided to... More

It is so gratifying when guests spend time posting detailed accounts of their experiences (especially when they are so good!) It means a lot to us and is an excellent way of encouraging us to continue to stay focussed on giving guests the best experience that we can. Thank you Lachlan More

What a pleasure it is to host such appreciative guests. We really value your comments, Katrina and are so pleased that the "surprise week-end away" organised by Craig was enjoyable. Comments like yours make the 7 years of hard labour building the villa all seem worthwhile. We enjoy sharing this beautiful "hideaway" and hope you visit again. More

The perfect retreat in a perfect location. Hosts Sue and Paul couldn't have been nicer, providing everything for a perfect stay. From freshly baked bread to compliment the honey gathered from their own bee hives, to beautifully appointed villas constructed in rammed earth by your hosts. The attention to detail in every respect makes the Corinium Roman Villas the perfect... More

It was lovely sharing our story with you both, especially since you are very interested in rammed earth technology. Glad you enjoyed the honey, we'll pass on your thanks to the bees! Hope to see you again soon. More

We were looking for a weekend escape from the rat-race, and this was just perfect! The property is delightfully situated on a spur overlooking Torrens Vale, and presents a magnificent vista of rural solitude just a short drive from the towns and beaches of the Fleurieu. We were lucky enough to score a sunny winter weekend, and the view from... More

We took our Scottish friends on a quick trip around SA which included a 10am crossing to Kangaroo Island. This lovely property seemed the ideal location to access our ferry and we had a very pleasant evening. We opted to use their BBQ and buy provisions on the way down. The kitchen was more than adequate and the rooms are... More

Gorgeous Roman villa's set in stunning countryside, remote and peaceful, yet, central to all the peninsula has to offer. Layout of the villa is beautiful, we would imagine for both summer and winter, it is very cosy yet modern. Very well equipped with TV, kitchenette, outdoor patio area with furniture and bbq and amazing 2 person spa bath. Sue gave... More
