Nestled amongst the picturesque vineyard and olive grove at Mount Avoca, our Eco-luxe lodges blend a balance of four-star luxury with an eco-sensibility. As with our outstanding wines, the accommodation offers a mix of elegance, style, great character and regional distinction. Large picture windows overlooking the magnificent backdrop of Mount Avoca and the Pyrenees Range set the tone to recharge and unwind.
Lodges range from $260 to $398 per night and include:
Our friendly team can also arrange picnic and dinner hampers as well as bike hire during your visit. Please note that hampers require at least one week's notice. The lodges are all equipped with Weber BBQs, so feel free to bring your own meat, fish or veg to cook. We have a traditional butchers on the main street, which is open Monday to Friday and on Saturday mornings.
For a limited time only, we're offering 3 nights for the price of 2 on all mid-week stays! Just use the code: midweek when booking. (Only applies for bookings for Monday to Thursday)
Three Eco-luxe lodges blend 4-star luxury with an eco-sensibility. Nestled among the olive grove overlooking the vineyard, these lodges are the perfect getaway for couples seeking solace, and a chance to escape the city's hustle and bustle.
It will be difficult to convince yourself to actually leave your tranquil lodge and a complimentary breakfast on your private balcony makes for an idyllic start to the day. If you feel like spending the day with your book and a glass of red, don’t fret, the staff can organise a delicious gourmet hamper, full of local produce, or they can help plan your daily activities and recommend great regional destinations. The lodges are almost identical - one is a mirror image of the other two - see the floor plan.
While the emphasis is on luxury, Eco-luxe @ Mount Avoca reflects the vineyard's organic practices and environmental focus. The architecturally designed lodges employ passive heating and cooling and eco-friendly materials to minimise their carbon foot-print. Cladding is formed from native Australian Cypress pine from managed plantations, and massive slabs of local bluestone form passive solar heat banks at the foot of the living and bed room windows. Each lodge has its own water tank and biological sewerage treatment.
Stylish and comfortable, the generous living spaces and kitchenette open onto private balconies – a perfect spot to watch the sunset over the vineyard. Wall-to-wall windows offer postcard views of the Pyrenees Ranges, vineyard and the hills and valleys of the region, from both the king-size bedroom and living room.
A carefully selected library of books (from supreme court Judge Sir John “Jack” Barry’s collection) grace the bookshelf.
Luxuriously appointed king bedrooms feature beautiful linen and overlook vines, as do the travertine-lined spa bathrooms that offer lush amenities. Floor-to-ceiling Italian stone envelopes this lovely, relaxing space. The polished, spotted-gum floor leads to a quiet and fully carpeted bedroom, making for the perfect end to the perfect day. A second smaller bedroom offers bunk beds for two.
Complimentary continental breakfast provisions, on site barbecues and a bottle of award-winning Mount Avoca wine are all included. Gourmet meal or picnic hampers can also be arranged with prior notice.
Though the lodges are designed predominantly for couples, the small bunkroom, which sleeps two, can be made available at a charge of $50 per adult and $40 per child per night.
Please note – We look forward to answering all queries as quickly as possible and recommend online bookings to secure a room; however, we are unable to guarantee same day bookings.
Staying at the Eco-luxe lodges means you're well placed to explore the Pyrenees wineries, starting with Mount Avoca's stone tasting room. Enjoy a full tasting at the cellar door, then you can be pointed in the direction of the charming town of nearby Avoca. After something more outdoorsy? The neighbouring Grampians region is full of majestic walking tracks, waterfalls and driving routes.
A relatively unexplored region, the Pyrenees has everything to suit the most discerning of tastes including wine, natural attractions, artistic endeavour or that quintessential relaxing pub culture. The intimacy of the area is clear when visiting any of the wineries, with winemakers themselves often available to discuss their personal tastes with visitors. There are more than 20 cellar doors in the Pyrenees, each offering a unique experience.
The world famous Grampians National Park is a short drive away and boasts lakes, rock-climbing and sensational walks as well as its own famous wineries. The Pyrenees artistic scene has been developing for many years and antique shops add to the attraction. The Pyrenees State Forest offers waterfalls, lookouts, dense bush and open plains that can all be experienced in a number of different ways including walking, picnics, mountain bike riding and four wheel driving.
