Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
There are worse ways to spend a summer evening than sitting on the verandah of your own private vineyard residence, listening to the rustling leaves of a nearby grove of 100-year-old eucalypts and sipping on a glass of cold, crisp white wine.
Atrium at Greenock Creek, the newest venture of Jim and Helen Carreker of The Louise and its acclaimed Appellation restaurant, is located on the highest point overlooking the Western Barossa Valley and is surrounded by its own 42-acre estate.
With a private chef on hand, a wine fridge bursting with the region’s finest, an open-plan glass-fronted living and dining area, three en-suite bedrooms, an outdoor central atrium fringed by olive trees and 100 of the world’s best wineries within spitting distance, a stay at Atrium is – like a fine wine – something to savour and delight in.
