About Renee de Saxe
Our family moved to the Barossa Valley in 2016. We live just up the road from the 40 Acre Retreat. We love the Marananga area, its location is so central and the valley is so picturesque.
Renee de Saxe purchased this Farmhouse in 2017
Why Renee de Saxe chose Marananga
Visitors to the Barossa Valley have been staying at the 40 Acre Retreat for well over 6 years. We took ownership of the property at the end of 2017. We loved the abundance of natural light and big open plan living space. We got to work straight away giving the place a much needed overhaul and we think the results speak for themselves. Our aim was to create a home that was fresh, inviting and relaxed both indoors and out.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Located on a 40 Acre farm, the birds are generally the noisiest thing you will hear, or the lambs in lambing season. It is a short drive to the most visited wine and food offering in the valley.

Absolutely amazing! Wish we had it for longer :)
I stayed here for 2 nights on my wedding week. Night before with a friend and the night of with my husband. I had 5 girls come over in the morning to get our hair and makeup done. This place blew my mind. We walked in around 10pm after a very easy check in. The house was so warm and cosy! Made our night even better. There was so much space to get ready and it was perfect. My Mother In Law was telling me about her issues with another Stayz house....they were very jealous of this house! I would recommend it to anyone :)
Great house to escape the city.
Excellent house to relax and enjoy the vineyards and wineries. So much to do in the area. Food and wine in the region is amazing.
Excellent location, good property with children
We travelled with a small group of adults and children. The property is excellent for children as there is plenty of room to run and explore. It was clean and the layout is good. The house is listed as sleeping 10 people but that includes two mattresses that we had to put in the lounge because the rooms were not big enough to host them. Given there is only one (large) sitting area, we couldn't have adult time at night because a couple of the children were sleeping in the lounge. Even watching television was tricky because we kept the children awake.
A Retreat Indeed!!
Such a special, huge place. 2 sitting areas and a dining space makes this retreat spacious and inviting. Wineries and Restaurants less than 2km away!
Great for groups
The house was stylish and had lovely linens. Very happy with the bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas. The kitchen is in need of an update - electric hotpates and a slow oven. Overall a lovely house I would recommend.
Thanks for your feedback Lynda.
A fantastic weekend for a group of 9 adults in a gorgeous house In the country. Very close to well known wineries and restaurants.
Located in the heart of Barossa wine grape growing country, near the famous Seppeltsfield Road. Within walking distance of Two Hand wines, around the corner from Hentley Farm, Seppeltsfield, Greenock Creek Wines and Whistler Wines.
For foodies Maggies Beer's Farm house kitchen is approximately 6kms away plus gastronomic delights like Fino, Hentley Farm and Harvest Kitchen.
