About Peter Thompson
My wife and I have lived on the property for over 30 years and love this incredible valley that we call home. We have traveled extensively both in Australia and abroad and know what it is like to be away from home and stay in unfamiliar places. La Boheme has been designed and built with this in mind and is the culmination of all the best of what we have seen and experiences all around the world. It is both luxurious and practical and serves as a comfortable home away from home to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this lovely part of our planet. It is our life.

Cosy Warm and Beautifully Presented
The house was beautifully presented with gorgeous ceramics and an amazing view - we look forward to coming back again :)
My Little Piece Of Heaven!
From the moment La Boheme came into view, l began to unwind and relax. This is such a beautiful place and so quiet and peaceful. The only person l had to look after was myself. Seeing the birdlife and kangaroos up close in the mornings and evenings was amazing. Hosts are wonderful and very accommodating and interesting pottery around the house. Needs further investigating.
Will definitely recommend La Boheme to friends.
The only downside was l should have stayed longer.
Fantastic stay at an amazing property
We stayed at La Boheme for the Australia Day long weekend. It was incredibly cozy, comfortable, and the views were the definition of Australia. From the comfortable bed to the beautiful hand made pottery and crockery, it was a fantastic find and a place we've already recommended to friends and family.
Thanks as well to Peter who helped us make the most of our stay and made some excellent suggestions on local eateries. We can't wait to stay here again.
Yet another wonderful stay at La Boheme!
This was our third time staying at La Boheme and would highly recommend it for anyone who wants a private, quiet and spacious holiday retreat. The house has everything you need and the location is perfect, offering a peaceful stay in stunning bush surrounds. We look forward to our next visit!
A wonderful getaway
This is an absolutely beautiful property, tucked away off the main road to Daylesford it provided all the peace, quiet and privacy we were hoping for during our stay. All of the furnishings were extremely comfortable and the mudbrick house did a wonderful job of keeping the cold winter air out and holding the warmth of the fireplace in. Peter was a great host and was attentive to helping us out, ever when we bumped in to him down at the local shops! It was fantastic being able to use all of the handmade ceramics which add to the charm of the house while still maintaining a perfect level of functionality, even with the espresso machine!
We couldn't recommend La Boheme enough and we hope we'll have the opportunity to stay again in the future!
Thank-you Ben. Glad you enjoyed the villa and nice to meet you and your partner. See you again. Minna and Peter.
La Boheme Villa
Overall a good property just lacking the smaller things that make a difference. Very warm and cosy with comfortable beds and setting. We found the crockery hard to deal with and the cleanliness of the place a bit of a put off. The upstairs bedroom vanity unit was blocked and had hair from a previous guest. The kitchen hand towel was unclean and smelly.
Thankyou for your feedback Cathy. The ceramics in La Boheme are handmade on site as is the villa itself. We understand that not everyone will enjoy the artistic and earthy nature of our work and appreciate that some would rather a more common feel to their experience. The ceramics overwhelmingly enjoyed and often purchased by guests from the pottery studio on site. Her work can be found in many galleries both in Australia and abroad. The villa itself has a similar reputation having a near perfect review score in the 55 other reviews both on Stayz and other forums. Ours is a home grown operation and my wife and I personally do all the cleaning, maintenance and caring for our guests and take the utmost care that the villa is spotless before arrival time. We do get that some will not understand the nature and feel of a place built from mudbrick, sandstone and local timbers. It may be that this form of natural building doesn't exhibit the pristine sterile look of some accommodation available but rather a rustic, earthy feel that we and many others hold dear to our hearts. I am not sure how a rouge unclean hand towel made its way into the kitchen but we will keep a close eye on this. Yes you are right, the upstairs vanity was partially blocked and yes it was with hair. I unscrewed the plug assembly to discover this after we read this review. Thankyou for the insight. As is stated on all correspondence with our guests, we live just a little further down the property and invite any correspondence at any time of day or night to attend to anything that may be not quite right. This issue could have easily been rectified a quick call or text. We do try to provide a wonderful experience for our guests and are always happy to attend to any wishes or needs. Thanks again for your stay and the feedback. Kind regards, La Boheme Villa.
La Boheme overlooks the Hepburn Regional Park with Sailors Waterfall just 250 metres from the property. The Great Dividing Trail passes right along the boundary of the property with abundant walks to explore.
