While the emphasis is on luxury, eco luxe @ Mount Avoca reflects the vineyards’ 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 native Australian Cypress pine from managed plantations; floors are native spotted gum. 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.
Architecturally designed; a large living area with kitchenette opens onto a balcony with views of the Pyrenees Ranges, vineyard and the hills and valleys of the region. Wall to wall windows offer postcard views from both the king-size bed-room and living room.
The bathroom is on a decadent scale and features a shower, spa-bath and shines with natural light. Floor to ceiling Italian stone envelopes this utterly relaxing space – not to be missed or rushed.
The polished spotted gum floor leads to the fully carpeted bedroom for the perfect end to the perfect day.
