We stayed in Tuscany, friends in Provence - the names are too phoney, it is Australia for goodness sake. Not luxurious, very comfortable country style, lavender themed. Absolute attention to detail, good breakfast provisions, fully equipped kitchen, delicious biscuits, gift bag of local goodies, bottle of wine, etc. quality linens, comfortable beds. Because it is an old building there are compromises, the front cottage is near the road, but the bedroom is at the back. Outdoor seating areas with barbecues. The front cottage is perhaps a little larger and has a washing machine, so perhaps better for a longer stay. Good eating in Auburn, thoroughly recommended for a Clare Valley wine tour, or cycling the local trails on old railway lines. Bikes supplied at the cottages although we didn't use them or the sauna. Air conditioning and log burner not used by us.
