Escape the city with the perfect romantic getaway
It is hard to believe that this little marvel is only a two and a half hour drive from Sydney - as it makes you feel like you are a world away. With its 25 landscaped acres, these self-contained villas are the ideal gateway to the wonders of the beautiful Hunter Valley.
Beltana Villas is situated in the most perfect location which is so close to vineyards and cellar doors, restaurants, galleries, golf course and activities such as Zoos, Natural Parks, horse riding and many more...
As soon as we arrived into the property we could not help but be in awe of its beauty and modern villas.
To get into your villa you need to use the keyless alarm system which was great - we did not have to worry about forgetting or losing the key. You simply enter the alarm code to get in and out of the villa.
The villas are so modern and spacious and each villa has its own personal balcony with breathtaking views of the property. You can take in the landscape gardens, vineyards, surrounding bushland and of course the adorable wildlife! It is also a short drive to the main town and shops.
Some of the very cute wildlife locals that call this place home...
Do note that when you turn onto Old North Rd, the road becomes dirt road (unsealed) after a few minutes of sealed road – however, it is suitable for 2wd vehicles.
My partner and I absolutely loved staying here and cannot wait to come back. With views so breathtaking and with such spacious and extremely clean rooms, this is certainly my number one Hunter Valley accommodation choice from now on.
