The Buckland - Studio Retreat offers luxury self-contained accommodation and B&B packages tucked away in the picturesque Buckland Valley yet close to Bright, Mt Hotham and Mt Buffalo. The 4 studios are each a contemporary retreat designed just for two. A romantic escape for a honeymoon, anniversary, special occasion or just a weekend (or week) away from it all, they are set well apart from each other to ensure complete privacy. Each has an open living area with stylish cord and leather furniture and bedrooms featuring custom build king size Queensland walnut timber beds. Funky bathrooms with double rain water showers and full glass walls allow private bush views...just watch the peeping wombats.
Apart from the focus on luxury and creature comforts, the design of the buildings is also energy efficient and eco-friendly. Using green energy, grey water recycling, heat exchange pumps for hot water, double glazing and total wrap-around insulation, the retreats are environmentally sustainable without making concessions to the comfort of their guests.
The studios present the ultimate in self-contained luxury accommodation - no corners have been cut here - goose down doonas, espresso coffee machine, seductive mood lighting, plush robes and relaxing L'Occitane aromatherapy hair and body products - this is the Art of Indulgence!
Each studio has two private decks and a well equipped kitchen.
Set amid 16 hectares of rolling countryside, adjoining lush bush land, the studios offer amazing views over the surrounding vineyards and chestnut groves to Mt Buffalo. This tranquil setting is only 10 minutes drive to Bright.
A sumptuous daily continental breakfast buffet is a standard inclusion in all accommodation packages and is served daily in our cafe on the property (about 300 meters walk through pasture).
Local activities and attractions include cool-climate wineries, hiking on Mt Buffalo or exploring the extensive network of alpine 4WD tracks, golf, fishing and horse riding. For some excitement try a tandem micro light flight or paragliding experience or a totally adrenalin inducing helicopter flight over the dramatic cliffs of Mt. Buffalo.
Guests of The Buckland are able to enjoy a delicious four-course degustation menu at nearby Villa Gusto's acclaimed restaurant or enjoy the many fine eateries Bright has to offer, including Simone's of Bright, renowned as one of country Victoria's best restaurants.
Alternatively, stay put at your luxurious country retreat, cook up a storm on your BBQ and enjoy the piece and quiet.
