Beautiful cottages nestling in a vineyard amongst rolling hills, with the autumn sunlight glinting off yellow grapevine leaves. It doesn't get better than this.
The retreat is well situated 10 min outside of McLaren Vale within easy reach of the many wineries in the district.
We enjoyed a few days stay in the Manhattan, which has two bedrooms. We were impressed with the modern styling and immaculate fitout of the cottage. Every detail of guest comfort is taken care of. The cottage was well provisioned with bacon and eggs, cereal, bread and juice for making breakfast in the mornings as well as complimentary wine, chocolates and soft drink, .
A well-equipped fireplace is ready to go for a cosy evening in the cooler months.
The whole experience is very private and self-contained with a PIN provided by the managers which gives access to the cottage.
For non-South Australians driving from Adelaide after dark, expect that your GPS will take you through some dark country roads in rolling hills for 35 min – but it will get you there in the end.
