About Terri Bettenay

We purchased this property whilst living in Perth where we were both born and raised. With a passion firstly for the Margaret River region, surfing, food, wine and forest walking it was always a dream to have a property in the region.

Greg taught in several country towns however we were always drawn to this Capes region.

He completed an honors degree in Horticulture which eventually lead us to purchasing this farm, planting grapes and making wine. We both worked in the region with Greg being a senior lecturer in viticulture and I was a dental therapist.

We continued to establish our business to include accommodation, which began with

addressing the shire council to allow this type accommodation on a farm property.

We were successful and the rest is history.

Our children are now grown up and still living in the region with their own families and businesses. They have both worked at Bettenays and and brought a young modern approach to what we do and we feel privileged to have them live near by.

Our son was most instrumental in developing our nougat and liqueurs after living

in the Sanoma Valley and completing a vintage and trips to the nougat region of France.

Without their help we would not be where we are today

Why Terri Bettenay chose Metricup

We chose this property as we were looking for the best soils to grow grapes.

Greg's father was a soil scientist with CSIRO, so Greg asked him to examine potential properties for their purpose of growing grapes.

An adequate water source is also important and with a young family, a house would be handy.

This property had it all, as well as being in the region we had most wanted to live.

Combining of lifestyle with establishing a viticulture and tourism business did not always go to plan. Many sacrifices were made due to this labor intensive venture.

However, the end result is a beautiful property allowing time now to enjoy some of the fruits of our labor whilst inviting other people to share in what we have created

What makes this chalet unique

Whether it is looking over the 5 acre lake, remnant stand of trees, cows in the for ground

vines in the distance, there is always a picturesque view to be admired.

Trees we planted 30 years ago have matured. Avenues of Manchurian pears make a feature and Mediterranean gardens are wonderful for fragrance and seasonal colour.

Winter creeks, fruit trees and vege gardens all add to the vibrancy and serenity of this

exquisite place.

Peaceful property

  • 4 of 5

The setting at Bettenay's is lovely and peaceful. The chalet is comfortable and everything is provided for. The only problem was the cleanliness. We had left our own house clean to come back to but arrived at Bettenay's feeling a bit disappointed with how obvious it was that the chalet had not been cleaned for our arrival. It was tidy but not clean. Also the aircon did not work and so we had to make our own fire every night. We didn't mind but it needs fixing before the summer

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Liz. I am so glad you ultimately enjoyed your stay. I have taken my cleaner for a 'walk through ' to show her the areas she was missing. Apologies for her lack of attention and that I was unaware the cleaning hours I was paying for were not to a high enough standard. This has been addressed and rectified now. I hope we see you again.

Lovely Chalet

  • 5 of 5

I travel with my wife and 2 kids; we stayed here for 2 nights in May. The house is clean, tidy and comfortable. The bed and baby cot are clean and comfy. I spotted a kangaroo in front of the chalet in the early morning. If you love country home, you would love this beautiful chalet definitely.

Not quite a lakeside chalet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bettanays. It was central to the wineries and other tourist sites and was within easy reach of the township. Accommodation was comfortable and everything was provided. I would recommend this as a place to stay.
