Lakeside Villas at Crittenden Estate
The Mornington Peninsula is home to some of Victoria’s best all-in-one winery, restaurant and luxury accommodation options. Among them is the sprawling Crittenden Estate, a longstanding spot in the seaside suburb of Dromana. After a charming refurb in 2022, its lakeside villas are ready to book for your next wine-country-meets-coastal retreat.
There are three self-contained villas on 27 acres of vineyards and natural bushland. They have cosy log fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens, luxury bathrooms with underfloor heating, and freestanding spa baths with lake views. Earthy shades of sage and natural timbers complement the surroundings, and there are no shared walls with neighbouring guests, so you can relax in privacy.
You’ll also find comfy king-size beds and a deck made for picturesque breakfasts. Plus, in-room massages and three-course dinners – and picnic hampers – can be added to your package. A complimentary wine tasting is also on the cards with every stay.
On the other side of the estate, a stellar dining experience is also available at Stillwater – a restaurant run by Zac Poulier with a menu focused on locally sourced produce.
