Group of 9 people stayed for Opera in the Alps. Wonderful, clean facilities. Already booked for next year!
Had an amazing stay at Serengale Retreat, it exceeded all of our expectations and then some. The property itself is amazing - 5 bedrooms with two separate living areas, the house is beautifully renovated and appointed and well suited for two families/groups to share. We went as two families with kids, and there was plenty of room for everyone but the split zones made it easy to manage things like noise and sleep timing for the younger ones.
Amazing kitchen setup, large dining area next to undercover outdoor eating and BBQ, it's very spacious and practical. Both bathrooms are large and accommodating - the master ensuite has a shower larger than some kitchens I've experienced, and the central bathroom has a great bath and oversized shower. Beds are really comfortable too.
Outside, the saltwater pool is a good size and really well designed, shallow enough with steps to sit around but deep enough at one end to cater for tall people. The kids loved the salt pool, no irritation. The property is so private that skinny dipping after the kids went to bed wasn't an issue either (and nudists will love this place, heaps of privacy and 14 acres makes it really open). There's lots of native bushland on the property, with its own walking track and plenty of wildlife (and didn't see a single snake).
Originally we thought it might be in the middle of nowhere, but it is surprisingly close to Beechworth and Wangaratta, and not that far away from Albury/Yarrawonga and even over the border. This meant plenty of activities were within reach, but we were able to return to this lovely sanctuary and relax, cool off in the pool and enjoy the serenity.
The owners are lovely and have a great winery next door, definitely worth booking in a tasting for the wine drinkers. It's not the cheapest accommodation around but split with two families makes it quite reasonable for the amount of privacy, luxury and open space (and a pool!). They've really set up a well thought out and beautifully appointed retreat, and we definitely recommend it to everyone.
We had a lovely stay back in October at this stylish retreat. It proved to be the perfect setting to read with a lovely glass of wine. Just a short drive from the beautiful town of Beechworth, this well lit, generously sized accommodation with ample break out space for quiet time proved to be the perfect accommodation for our weekend away.
