Luxury – Friendly - Relaxing
A few weeks before we moved from Adelaide to Sellicks we were looking for short-term accommodation. We wanted something located as close as possible to our new house, to easily do the final coordination work. Not so easy, as B & B's in tourist regions are usually very expensive. But we were lucky and found a place where we could live for a couple of weeks. And even at a time when the B & B is normally closed.
The two marvellous luxury cottages of "The Viking Farm" are located in the picturesque countryside of Sellicks Hills. The view over the hills and even up to the sea is spectacular. As soon as the weather was warm and beautiful, we enjoyed the sunset on the terrace with a glass of local wine and watched our host when riding her horse. How romantic is that?
The location is perfect to make both trips to the nearby wine cellar doors or to spend the day at the beach in summer. With the main towns Willunga, McLaren Vale and Aldinga very close, there is a huge selection of wineries and fine dining available, although the cottages are self-sufficient.
The owners of the Viking Farm are of Swedish origin, which is reflected in the lovingly chosen furnishings of the two cabins. We felt comfortable from our first day. Both self-sufficient holiday homes feature a fully equipped kitchen, a modern bathroom and a generous living space with TV and Internet connection. Not to mention the beautiful terrace overlooking the sea, where you can enjoy your hearty breakfast in the morning and the fantastic sunset in the evening in a quiet setting.
Also the rates for the holiday houses are fair and reasonable. 1 night in a unit for 2 people costs $195 including a full breakfast or both units for $350. Special offers are also available.
The friendly hosts with their two daughters are extremely helpful and make your stay in their B & B a relaxing and wonderful time. Even kids will love this place because there are so many different pets to watch on the entire property. The two little dogs especially always like to give you a warm welcome.
