From the moment you enter the majestic wrought iron gates of Casa Valeri you will be captivated by the exquisitely elegant style of this stunning mediterranean villa and surrounds, so powerfully reminiscent of Provence in the south of France. This is a truly unique retreat just for two on 40 acres of picturesque rolling pastures dotted with serenely grazing Hereford cattle, and edged by protective woodlands on the foothills of Mount Victoria.
Enter the gravelled courtyard resplendent with classical Provençal tones of primrose yellow, burnished yellow ochre and luscious lavender blues that sweep across the ground to terraced gardens of olive trees and swathes of lavender, framed by stately pines and towering eucalypts. A limestone fountain splashes water and Anduze urns line a curving drystone wall. The stunning exterior features a barrel tile terracotta roof with stucco walls, blue french shutters on semi-arched windows, and antique french doors with gorgeous iron detail. A shaded rear patio features pebble paving and an iron table setting for two, with views over manicured lawns to pasturelands and the forest beyond. Privacy and seclusion is guaranteed here with exclusive accommodation for one couple only.
Close to the mountain hamlet of Warburton just 75km east of Melbourne city where the Yarra River flows crystal clear through a dramatic alpine valley, there are local cafes and shops to investigate. You can enjoy riding through stunning forests by bicycle or horseback. There are plenty of wineries to visit in the Yarra Valley region, or you could simply explore the superb local woodlands of the property, where spectacular natural beauty abounds year round.
