On Site Facilities

The main area of the villa is open plan with a kitchen, dining room table and lounge area tastefully presented overlooking a garden and surrounding vineyards. A large open fire brings warmth during those chilly winter months.

Dining

Activities

For the more adventurous, there are paths for walking, bird watching, mountain biking, quad biking or kayaking in the dam. Any enthusiastic photographer will delight in the flora and fauna and amazing sunsets.
