About the neighborhood
Located half way between Margaret River township and the stunning Redgate Beach, with award-wining wineries, Xanadu, Voyager and Leeuwin Estate just down the road, Bella Retreat is the ideal getaway. You're in the heart of the Maragret River wine region and which ever way you turn there's a winery waiting to be explored. Famous for international surfing competitions, Margaret River mouth is 10 mins drive away where spectacular scenery and awe inspiring waves may be viewed along this stretch of coastline.
