- Just outside Perth, in Swan Valley’s wine country, lies the historic Mandoon Estate. It sees a large number of daytime visitors for its wine tourism activities but, unlike most other similar estates, it also offers overnight accommodation. Its Maya Maya Hotel is a modern luxury hotel that has by now come to be seen as one of Swan’s finest. The complete range of wine enotourism associated with the estate is there at your doorstep, and indeed all the accommodation has unobstructed views over the vineyards. It also has partnerships with local Noongar Aboriginal organizations, and you can explore elements of the Noongar culture and traditions around the estate. THE ACCOMMODATION: At Maya Maya, you’ll have a choice of 32 luxury rooms and suites, with a maximum of two per unit, divided between Delux Rooms (entry-level) Superior Rooms, and Executive Suites. Whether you choose a Delux Room or a suite, spaciousness is pretty much a guarantee. You’ll also find them tastefully furnished, featuring plush beds, top-notch modern amenities, and a design aesthetic that is modern and minimalist. With that in mind, their cheaper rooms offer good value in comparison to their more expensive suites, unless you’re planning an extended stay maybe, and don’t mind splashing out a bit for the extra space and slightly more homely feeling they might offer. All the accommodation overlooks the historical Verdelho vines initially planted in 1895, and each room has outside space with views of the vineyards, the ancient gum trees, and the meandering Swan River. Check out all your room options here at Booking.com FACILITIES & THINGS TO DO: Staying at Maya Maya means the renowned Mandoon Estate’s vineyards and winery at your door.

- Near Belford and the gateway to NSW’s Hunter Valley wine region, the very highly rated, and intriguingly titled, Block Eight Farm (there’s a rather mundane explanation for the name!), has luxury self catering cottages on its 100 acre, wine and olive oil producing, slice of rural paradise. THE ACCOMMODATION: The accommodation really sets a high standard for other farm stays in NSW to follow. There is a choice of one double bedroom ‘villas’ plus a three bedroom cottage that can sleep up to six. All of them are extremely well appointed, stylish and modern, but still retain something of a homely country farmhouse feel. They are all extremely spacious too, with top of the range kitchens and comfortable, stylish lounge areas with traditional wood burners. The bathrooms too are outstanding and come with underfloor heating. Outside you’ll have a private verandah from where to admire the beautiful views, with one of their complimentary bottles of wine perhaps, and there is a barbecue at your service too. Along with the wine you will also receive complimentary gourmet breakfast hampers, Nespresso coffee pods, a selection of Hunter Valley cheeses, and some other little treats too. PRICES: Check out all the details – prices, reviews & more photos on the booking page here. THE FARM & VINEYARDS: Though having great success with luxury agritourism Block Eight is also a fully working farm and vineyard. It has been producing quality wine for many years now including Semillon, Shiraz Rose and Frizzante. They produce a line of extra virgin olive oil too from their ten acres of frantoio olive groves. You can sample the produce and of course buy some to take home as you wish. There are lots of animals at the farm, both wild and tame, with dozens of wallabies, kangaroos, swans and goannas for example roaming around, as well as, amongst others, their own domestic pigs, goats and hens. Note: To keep a peaceful atmosphere this farm stay can’t accommodate children or pets!
