Nestled amongst the picturesque vineyard and olive grove at Mount Avoca, eco-luxe @ mount avoca are three newly completed lodges that blend a balance of four star luxury with an eco sensibility.
Tranquillity is key in these beautiful self contained lodges - large picture windows overlooking the magnificent backdrop of Mt Avoca and the Pyrenees Range set the tone to recharge and unwind.
Architecturally designed; a large living area with kitchenette opens onto a balcony with views of the Pyrenees Ranges, vineyard and the hills and valleys of the region. Wall to wall windows offer postcard views from both the king-size bed-room and living room.
The bathroom is on a decadent scale and features a shower, spa-bath and shines with natural light. Floor to ceiling Italian stone envelopes this utterly relaxing space - not to be missed or rushed.
The polished spotted gum floor leads to the fully carpeted bedroom for the perfect end to the perfect day.
Completely separate is The Homestead overlooking the entire estate. Completely renovated, the founders original home offers space and luxury for families and groups.
Stay in the original Barry family home situated on the highest point of the property. Floor to ceiling windows provide panoramic views of the estate, vineyard and Pyrenees ranges. Relax in two large living areas in comfort and style.
The perfect home away from home for families or friends ideally located in the heart of the Pyrenees with Ballarat, Daylesford, Sovereign Hill, Castlemaine and the Grampians all less than an hour away.
Stylishly furnished with a mix of contemporary furniture and antiques, a brand new well equipped kitchen and expansive gardens will make you feel like the lord of the manor. We provide linen, towels and the kitchen has basics condiments (salt, pepper, oil etc).
The Pyrenees State Forest offers waterfalls, lookouts, dense bush and open plains that can all be experienced in a number of different ways including walking, picnics and mountain bike riding. There are more than 30 cellar doors in the Pyrenees, each offering a unique experience. The Grampians is a short drive away and boasts a world famous National Park with lakes, rock-climbing and sensational walks as well as its own famous wineries.
While the emphasis is on luxury, eco luxe @ Mount Avoca reflects the vineyards’ organic practices and environmental focus.
The architecturally designed lodges employ passive heating and cooling and eco-friendly materials to minimise their carbon foot-print.
Cladding is native Australian Cypress pine from managed plantations; floors are native spotted gum.
Massive slabs of local bluestone form passive solar heat banks at the foot of the living and bed room windows.
Each lodge has its own water tank and biological sewerage treatment.
