Although we only had a short stay the room was perfect, kitchenette, lounge area and panoramic view from the deck. Short drive to the local pub for dinner. Hosts were very helpful with local advice. Room had a very pleasant fit out and had everything we needed. Well worth a longer stay.

Beautiful retreat, nice cottage with balcony and valley view, lovely service including fresh eggs and yummy home made muffins. Good value. Neerim South has a few things to offer including a great outdoor pool.

My family and I enjoyed an overnight stay at Vivere in the Pear Tree Cottage, a charming wooden two-bedroom self-contained cottage. There are several accomodation options at Vivere, we were in a more traditional-looking cottage in order to accoodate the three of us but there is one building that is very modern, looks amazing and would have magnificient unobstructed views...

Thank you for providing such a comprehensive review and for taking note of the little things that I provide.

Splendid views across the rolling hills with a nice garden setting to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Highly recommended getaway, the living area very comfortable, with...
