It's not often that you find accommodation in the middle of the wilderness that still ticks all of the boxes you'd expect for a romantic few days away - a fireplace, large spa, great views, warm bathrobes, large flatscreen tv/DVD player - but Aspect Villas does that and more. The Villa was luxurious and comfortable and offered the most incredible views across the grass plain (where dozens of kangaroos grazed) towards The Grampians range.
Being the middle of winter, we were more than content to stay inside the Villa in front of the fire and watch mist and drizzle across the mountain. We ventured outside every now and then between downpours and it was great to not have to wander too far from the Villa and still spot emus, deer and kangaroos. The villa has plenty of land around it and it feels very private and quiet. I imagine in summer, it would be the perfect spot to drop a picnic blanket behind the villa and stay there for the day.
Continental breakfast supplies are provided as well as fudge, which was delicious. My only suggestion for improvement is that more generous provisions could be supplied (bacon, eggs, orange juice for breakfast, perhaps a bottle of wine for later) for the price you pay per night.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the Villas to anyone looking for a place to get away from it all with their partner.
