Mio Monte - A Luxury Couples Retreat

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Mio Monte is an ideal couples retreat for those searching for something a little special.

The house has been stylishly decorated in warm tones giving it a contemporary and inviting feel. The large kitchen is fully equipped complete with Nespresso coffee machine and ipod docking station.

The open plan dining and living area opens out through large glass sliding doors onto a wide verandah which overlooks the tennis court and the neighbouring vineyards.

As you watch the sun set in the distance you can light the large open fire and settle back to read or watch the flatscreen TV (connected to Austar).

Upstairs is the massive loft style bedroom with King bed and a joining library/sitting room. The views from the bedroom stretch across the dam, orchard and green fields beyond.

This is no ordinary weekender, many little touches and great attention to detail make Mio Monte a place you will love to be and a place you will want to return to.


Located in Broke - the "Polkolbin of Old", Mio Monte sits on 16 acres and overlooks 100 acres of vineyards. It offers isolation, and peace and quiet to all who come to enjoy her.

The area of Broke - Fordwich now grows more Hunter grapes than any other area in the region and has loads of great cellar doors to try. It is also only 15 minutes from Pokolbin and 20 minutes to historic Wollombi. A local transport service can be booked to take you to concerts or any restaurant.

To get there turn off the F3 at the Peats Ridge exit and follow the signs through Wollombi to Singleton via Broke. Mio Monte is 30 km from Wollombi township on your right hand side. If you get to the Broke Village Store you have gone too far. Turn around and travel back 2 kms.

Local Attractions include

Cafes and Restaurants

Excellent quality Cellar Doors

Olive Groves retailing some great local produce

Hunter Valley Gardens

Day Spas

Alpacca Farm

Antique Shops



Minimum 2 nights stay applies to this property

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Mio Monte for 2 nights. We were blown away by how beautiful the property is and how well maintained. Danielle has styled the house so beautifully and just the little touches like the Aesop bathroom products were amazing. Love the tennis court and little golf course . We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will 100% be back again and would recommend to anyone.

An amazing relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Mio Monte is an amazing house situated amongst vineyards and nature. It has a very calming and relaxing atmosphere, great qualities and exceptional value.

The place has everything you need for an amazing stay, the tennis court was fun, the fireplace was amazing and just hanging out was a real treat. The bed was comfortable and cozy, and the kitchen was well equipped.

It was cool reading the history of the property and looking at photos of it's journey. Made my Fiancee and I want to pack up and move to the Hunter.

Overall and amazing place if you want to get away from it all and relax/unwind, you can do it here :)

Some feedback for the owners:

- There is no sanity bins in the toilet, would be nice :)

- The only board game was Backgammon for those winter nights. It would be nice to build on that selection.

- One day I hope you can get a nice bath to relax in and take in the views.

- We had to buy some paper towel and Spray and Wipe, unfortunately the property didn't have enough for us.

Also, apologies as we didn't get a chance to unstack the dishes and put the cover on the Pizza Oven (we had lunch Calzones).

Thanks again Danielle, we had such an amazing time and you were very accommodating.

Amazing - worth booking for the views alone

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our first wedding anniversary, as we got married in Broke and wanted to return to the area and stay somewhere special. As soon as we drove up the driveway we knew we'd made the best choice! The house is so spacious and the view hits you straight away. To sit outside and watch the wallabies and the sunset was just perfect - and the property is very close to Margan Wines for a good meal. I'd recommend this property 100%! Thanks for fitting us in during your renovations Danielle, the new fireplace is beautiful.

We stayed at mio monte last weekend! It's the perfect place to stay for peace and quiet but also being close enough to explore the area.

The house is clean and comfortable, felt like a home away from home!

Danielle made sure our stay was perfect

Lovely, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Mio Monte this weekend. It's an absolutely beautiful and unique property - we found it a very comfortable and tranquil space to relax in. Loved the views on vines and mountain, and saw lots of wallabies all around! This is the country, so be aware that you will encounter quite a few bugs. My tip is to not turn on the upstairs lights at night, so the tiny bugs (annoying, buy harmless) aren't attracted to it!
