Rowlee Vineyard Villa is a historic homestead and vineyard surrounded by heritage gardens. Inside, though, it’s sleek and modern. Rich velvet lounges, marble bench tops, plush throws and touches of brass throughout the vineyard make it feel more like an inner-city boutique hotel than a country homestead.
Owner Nicole Samadol has done an impressive job managing the vineyard and adding this sophisticated accommodation to the property. It’s a perfect pairing; views out over the vineyard combined with a luxury room with home comforts. A full kitchen means you’ll never have to leave your villa, and you won’t want to. The deep bath, French toiletries and rainfall shower make preparing for each day (or returning home) a pleasure.
When it’s time to pop out for the evening, you’re just down the road from Racine Restaurant and only a 10-minute drive to the centre of town. On your way back pick up a bottle of Rowlee’s pinot gris or, if you’re after something a little different, try one of the Italian varietals like the arneis.
