Travel to Adelaide, South Australia to experience organic accommodation

If you’ve said no to a retreat, but you’re still looking to surrender – perhaps to a beautiful, old-world hotel where fine food and wine, big heavenly beds and professional, friendly service is at your fingertips – then Mount Lofty House might be just the key for you.

Mount Lofty House – A Mecure Grand Hotel
A widely winding road surrounded by the lush bushland of Piccadilly Valley and the Adelaide Hills takes you to Mount Lofty House – a historical home built between 1852 and 1858 that’s now an award-winning boutique hotel. Dripping with Old English charm, the hotel is furnished with fine South Australian art and antiques and is set amidst English-style rose gardens, organic vineyards, oak tree groves, sweeping lawns and six hectares of native parklands – all of which is taken superb advantage of by the House’s Piccadilly Restaurant with it’s floor-to-ceiling windows. Much of the produce for Piccadilly’s menu is taken from Mount Lofty’s organic garden, with many of the dairy products sourced from South Australia’s organic Paris Creek Farm. For a sensational entree, try the twice-baked goat’s cheese soufflé with a raspberry and walnut dressing. Heaven on a plate.
