About our home

Our very own rural retreat is on the outskirts of Hahndorf, one of South Australia's premier tourist attractions, being the oldest German settlement in Australia. You have 14 acres to explore, and a fabulous feeling of space and seclusion while the township is only a 1km walk away and neighbours at the bottom of the driveway.
The capital of South Australia, Adelaide is about 30kms away, with a bus leaving every half hour from Hahndorf main street.

Situated on top of a hill, the views from our home are commanding from every angle. A large open plan kitchen, renovated in 2013, allows for easy cooking while enabling you to enjoy the views at the same time. There are moments when I feel like I am living in a treehouse the views are so stunning.

If you love and appreciate beautiful wine, you will be staying in the right place, as we are smack bang in the middle of the Adelaide Hills wine region, with the most fantastic wineries within 2km - either a hearty walk or very quick drive. There are more than 40 cellar doors, hidden amongst vineyards and fruit orchards. The cool climate and good rainfall makes it perfect for producing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

While our property is usually full of animals, during a house swap we would not have our own animals on the property but you are welcome to discuss with us bringing your pet or even horses. There are stables, an arena and paddocks. Perfect for children, with a soccer pitch, trampoline, and exploring space. (While there is a small dam on the property it is about 300 or so metres from the house, only thigh deep in winter and 80% time dry in summer).

Hahndorf itself is a delightful village. Settled in 1839 by 54 families from Prussia. There are still some original buildings left in the township and some of the local businesses such as the Beerenberg Strawberry Farm is still in the same family with their heritage going back to the settlers.
