Overview

About the property

A peaceful retreat, set on 5 acres of land adjoining Kinglake National Park. Our 4 bedroom mudbrick holiday house is located in a secluded valley just 1 km off the Melba Hwy, the Castella Country Retreat (CCR) is an easily accessible yet secluded getaway, just a little over an hours drive from Melbournes CBD. If wine tasting or site seeing is your thing, CCR is a great place to base your stay in the Yarra Valley.

Wake to the laugh of the Kookaburras and enjoy an array of birdlife which fill the stringybark gums throughout the day. Keep an eye out for wild ducks, echidnas, wombats and kangaroos who frequent our dams and paddocks. CCR is a fabulous way to enjoy the Yarra Valley and the great Australian Bush.

Local attractions include numerous wineries (some with great restaurants), great scenery, walking trails, waterfalls, cafes, quaint local towns, Healesville Sanctuary, Tarrawarra Art Gallery, the Yarra Glen & Healesville Race Tracks and the RACV Country Golf Club.

With 4 bedrooms and two living areas CCR is great for a girls weekend away, families and groups of friends.

Families with young children will need to take care, there are two dams located on the property.

Sorry, pets are not permitted.

Smoking is NOT permitted inside.
