My husband and I spent January 7-9th at Den Mar. This was our first visit to the Hunter Valley and we had a great experience at Den Mar. I am not sure that the photographs really do justice to the Den Mar Estate or the villa's, the standard of accommodation and certainly the natural beauty of the scenery was more than we had expected. We stayed in Villa Semillon and were completely happy. The villa was immaculately clean, linens etc. in pristine condition. Although I didn't cook anything beyond breakfast each morning the kitchen had all the gadgets anyone could possibly want. There was binder with information on the area and practical recommendations which we used. The villa was spacious and the décor was tasteful and attractive. The first night we opened a bottle of Den Mar Chardonnay and sat on the patio watching the sunset over the vineyard. It was perfect.
Dennis & Marie, the owners are a lovely couple and were super helpful. They arranged a wine tour, & made dinner reservations for us. Marie gave us a private wine tasting at the Den Mar Cellar Door which was another lovely little touch we will remember. I have no hesitation in recommending Den Mar, we had a great time and will hopefully return in the future.
