Piccolo is ideally located in the heart of the Blue Mountains, so close to all that this World Heritage listed area has to offer. A wide selection of outstanding restaurants and cafes, stunning National Parks with awe-inspiring walking trails, boutique shopping, gourmet and fresh food markets, artisan markets, Leura Golf Course, picturesque gardens, and a constant evolving exciting calendar of local events.

Couples Romantic Retreat & Small Family Friendly

Luxurious queen sized bed with an assortment of European sized pillows and plush duck down pillows. Piccolo is designed for couples although a sofa bed is available if needed. All bed linen and towels are provided. Fully equipped kitchen with farmhouse ceramic sink, high quality modern stainless steel oven and gas cook top perfect for a simple or gourmet romantic dinner for 2 or for the family. A wide selection of entertaining books and magazines to read from the library wall, DVD’s, games and puzzles in the dining room. Complimentary WIFI with Netflix and Spotify.

Warmer Seasons

Fantastic gated covered veranda with grandpa and grandma rocking chairs and outdoor setting overlooking the garden perfect for a sun-drenched outdoor lazy morning breakfast or sunset happy hour listening to the Kookaburras.

Cooler Seasons

On a cold Winter’s day relax in front of the open fireplace with your favourite beverage with a good book, DVD, Netflix, or cook up hearty comfort food in the farmhouse kitchen. You can even soak up the morning sun rays on the veranda with a warm cuppa.

Home Away From Home

We have designed Piccolo with comfort and relaxation in mind. As you soak up the surroundings of native birds chirping in the trees we want you to feel that you that when you arrive it will become your home away from home too. Unwind and enjoy everything Piccolo has to offer and we hope you are drawn back someday soon.

Dog and Cat Friendly too!

We warmly welcome your furry companions. We just ask if you would kindly keep them off the furniture and clean up after them.

Fantastic place for a mountains get away

  • 5 of 5

My small dog and I really enjoyed our short holiday at Piccolo, The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is 5 minutes away from Leura and Katoomba which are very interesting places to explore. Even though it was hot when I was there the house is very well orientated and the front verandah helps to keep the place very cool. The house is an excellent example of how simple houses can work very well for a holiday, especially when they are so well equipped. Unlike many holiday homes I have stayed in the wifi was excellent.

Peaceful weekend in Leura

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely weekend in this cute little cottage with all the comforts we needed. The garden was in full bloom with stunning magnolias, cherry blossom and lavender! The front porch caught the best of the afternoon sunlight and the fire was cozy and warm after dark. This is a place to return to again and again!

Wonderful old world cosy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We found the 40 odd steps to the front door a disappointment for elderly folk like ourselves as carrying our provisions and luggage so far up was a burden. Perhaps a warning to other potential elderly clients might be helpful.

Another disappointment was the fact that, although wood was supposedly supplied, the wood storage shed was empty and we were required to chop our own wood with a very, very blunt axe. Not ideal for elderly clients.

Other than those two items we had an extremely pleasant 4 days.

Owner's Response: Hi Les Sorry, there was no wood left, it had been a cold couple of week and the wood had all been used. I will review our text to make sure it included the steps I'm glad you were still able to enjoy your stay

Beautiful cottage in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at Piccolo in Leura. The bed is cosy, the lounge room with open fire is a nice place to be on a cold evening, and the kitchen well set up. A great place to stay while visiting the area!
