Hotel Description

As a rule of thumb, it’s pretty reliable: travel to the various limits of the inhabitable world, and you’re generally in for something special. The southern coast of Tasmania, a place of unusually wild beauty on the cusp of the Southern Ocean, is a prime example, and the ten-room Villa Howden makes especially fine use of its privileged position on the shores of the North West Bay. It’s just fifteen minutes from the easy-going (and surprisingly artsy) Tasmanian capital, Hobart, but bucolic scenes unfolding in every direction make it feel rather farther from the bright lights.

The surprise, perhaps, is just how civilized it feels, out here on the edge of civilization. Though the wilderness is close at hand, you’ll sooner be playing pétanque in the well-kept gardens than fighting off Tasmanian devils. The atmosphere is that of an elegant country house, with activities to match — a game of chess in the fireplace lounge, cocktails and live music in the piano lounge, a quiet dip in the pool overlooking the bay. And leisurely seasonal meals give way to star-gazing (excellent in this part of the world) as the sun goes down.

Guest rooms take on the same serene look as the surroundings. You’ll find a few antiques and classic country-house flourishes (a floral pattern here, a patch of gingham there) but mostly the style is defined by open space and warm coastal sunlight.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.

How to get there: Villa Howden is located 36 kilometers from Hobart International Airport (HBA). Taxi transfers cost approximately AUD $85 each way.
