Altavilla (base of MT BULLER)

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

Altavilla is a luxurious and spacious fully furnished 3 bedroom self contained home surrounded by significant and tranquil gardens.

Altavilla is your all year round retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Located at the base of Mt Buller in the beautiful township of Merrijig, Altavilla is an ideal destination for families or small groups looking to take advantage of the skiing in the winter, or outdoor endeavours throughout the rest of the year.

Nestled quietly high atop the majestic manicured garden punctuated with wattles and Australian natives, the house looks proudly across to tall eucalypts and pines of Sawmill Settlement, then further up the mountain with uninterrupted views of Mt. Sterling in the North and Mt. Buller to the East. As the morning sun breaks across the ridges of the Great Dividing Range, the house is bathed in light throughout the day until the sun slowly passes behind Alpine Ridge in the evening.

Inside the house the master bedroom features built in robes and a full size ensuite with bath. The room opens out onto a raised deck that steps down to join the main deck bordering the front of the entire house. The large deck area is perfect for barbecuing, a quiet glass of wine, or a hot coffee on an icy morning.

The second double bedroom includes a queen size bed and separate walk in closet. A queen size futon sofa bed can also be made up upon request to accommodate any additional guests.

The third bedroom consists of 2 sets of matching bunks, a 2 seater couch and windows opening to the private rear garden.

Tastefully scattered throughout the house and featured in all bedrooms are original paintings by a local artist inspired by the tranquility and serenity in abundance.

Altavilla comfortably sleeps a maximum of 10 guests with hotel quality white bedding and linen provided at no extra cost. Arrive, kick back and relax!

A fully equipped laundry allows you to wash and dry clothes at your convenience, and the drying room at the front of the house is perfect for storing your skies, boards and bikes after long days toiling in the sun and snow, without bringing any mess into the house.

Escape the world and leave the city behind. Whether you're looking for mountain bike riding, bush walking, skiing, snow boarding, tobogganing, horse riding, fishing, boating, or even taking a scenic helicopter flight, everything is right at your doorstep.

Merrijig in any season. Perfect!

Take in the fresh Alpine air with a leisurely walk on one of the many tracks along the Delatite River.Try your luck at fly fishing and catch your own dinner. Hit the slops in winter with Mt Buller and Mt Sterling only minutes away.

Take a tour of the award wining local wineries or enjoy a leisurely lunch in the sunshine. Get involved in the many festivals and markets throughout the year. Dust off the cowboy boots for the Merrijig Rodeo on the Labour Day long weekend. Do the Mt Buller Nature Summit Walk in summer. Get on two wheels and challenge yourself to a mountainous road ascent, or the exhilarating downhill tracks or take a trail ride on horseback through the Victorian high country.

If the water's your thing, enjoy water skiing and wake boarding at Goughs Bay in Lake Eildon only 25 minutes away.

With the famous town of Mansfield 15 minutes away, pamper yourself at a day spa, then enjoy the local produce at the weekly farmers market.

Awesome Place for a Getaway with friends

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay in this lovely Villa. All we need is prepared for us to use. No wifi no problem. Best time and place to disconnect from the internet and connect with friends and family. Board games were available for use too. Never a dull moment.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights with 4 adults and 6 kids. The house was perfect and had everything we needed, including linen and towels. The owners were great and we would have no hesitations in staying there again. Perfect launching place to Mt Buller - only 25 minutes drive at most.

Spacious and comfortable stay in Merrijig

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect size for two families (we managed to just fit three small families, ie. 10 people, using the extra divan). Would highly recommend this to two families with a total of 4-5 children.)

The large garden was great for the kids (and perfect for our Easter egg hunt), and the adults retreated to the outside eating area if the kids were too loud inside. We discovered a short cut down to the river from the road, and there was plenty of animal spotting around the corner.

We had everything we needed in terms of cooking, bathroom and laundry supplies and were very comfortable. Would stay again.
