We stayed at Villa Gusto for our anniversary. This cosy, warm chateau is surrounded by picturesque gardens and views of surrounding mountain ranges. It is perfectly nestled away for both peace and privacy. Our hosts were exceptionally hospitable; making us feel very welcome and giving us plenty of advice about local events and activities. We would recommend Villa Gusto to... More

We spent the most delightful long weekend at Villa Gusto. Our hosts were remarkable. From the moment of our arrival we felt the passion of all things Italian. Our welcome was warm and friendly and we felt immediately at home. The dining area is adorned with Italian vintage posters, books on Italian cooking, as well as a range of magazines... More

Went here for weekend with friends. So beautiful although it was clear blue skies. Short trip to Bright. The rooms were great, lovely pool and decks. The main thing was the hospitality and the big communal room. The food was of a very high class and we had an amazing time. Easily spend a very long weekend just chilling out.

We made a last minute decision for a long weekend and booked Villa Gusto. So glad we did, what an amazing place. We've stayed in places all over Europe and America and this is up there with the best. Our hosts Ben and Kirsten just make staying there so easy. Ben has vast wine knowledge and a cellar to match... More

NOTE: when reading reviews on Villa Gusto: they reopened to the public in January 2016 and had been closed due to private booking for nearly 2 years. I was rather confused why reviews were so confusing and mentioned different hosts/restaurant until we got there and Ben explained. Our review: we stayed with Ben and Kirsten at Villa Gusto for 4...

We have just had a 2 night stay at Villa Gusto. Ben and Kirsten, our hosts, welcomed us and from the outset attended to our every need. We had dinner both evenings in their restaurant; the quality of the food was outstanding, matched with Ben's extensive selection of wines. The breakfasts were also delicious. The views to Mount Buffalo were... More

We spent a wonderful night at Villa Gusto and can't wait to go back and spend more time there. It is like a little piece of Tuscany in country Victoria. The moment we walked in the door we were greeted warmly and offered a cocktail! The house cocktail was delicious and my husbands cold beer didn't touch the sides. The... More

Save yourself the flight to Italy and visit Tuscany in Victoria. We enjoyed cocktails by the pool with an amazing view of Mt Buffalo, Ben & Kirsten have thought of everything could not have had a better time! Outstanding hospitality, amazing food, luxurious suite we will be back.

We were lucky enough to be given this trip by Chrysler/Fiat but I think it still deserves to be mentioned, so here goes. The accommodation, the food, the staff/owners, the activities, the area..........one word only to describe our long weekend.......WOW
