Accommodation at Eco-luxe
Nestled amongst 600 olive trees in the foothills at Mount Avoca overlooking the picturesque vineyard and Pyrenees Ranges, our Eco-luxe lodges blend a balance of four-star luxury with an eco-sensibility. Like our wines, the accommodation offers a mix of elegance, style, great character and regional distinction all under pinned by our dedication to quality. Large picture windows overlooking the magnificent backdrop of Mount Avoca and the Pyrenees Range set the tone to recharge and unwind.

- Generous continental breakfast provisions

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 Eco Luxury Experience
Eco-luxe @ Mount Avoca are the perfect getaway for couples seeking serenity and a chance to escape the city's hustle and bustle. It may be difficult to leave the tranquillity of your 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 bedroom 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.
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 arrange same day bookings.

Explore The Pyrenees
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 explore the charming town of 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 wines with visitors. There are more than 20 cellar doors in the Pyrenees, each offering a unique experience.
The world famous Gariwerd (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.
