Hotel Description

Though the Victoria countryside, about an hour from Melbourne, may seem an unusual spot for something calling itself a chateau, this 1854 heritage homestead radiates old-world class. Chateau Yering’s luxe period style — less common in the Commonwealth than in old Europe — is the result of meticulous restoration, combining original fittings with sumptuous additions like claw-foot bathtubs and hefty canopy beds.

Adjacent to the Yarra Valley, this is famed wine country. The 250 acres on which the house sits has long been lauded for its grapes. The cellar here dates from the 1840s, and the vineyards have been winning awards since 1861. To fully capitalize on its situation – and its wines – Chateau Yering boasts its own restaurant, Eleanor’s, the recipient of a Chef’s Hat, the Australian equivalent of a Michelin star.

Interiors at Chateau Yering no doubt surpass the standard of luxury its original inhabitants imagined for it. Suites are large and richly textured with brocades, tapestries and delicate objets d’art. Original open fireplaces and balconies were retained, while all rooms come with mod cons like air-conditioning, Internet access, TVs and DVD players, and 24-hour room service.

There’s a tennis court and swimming pool for those able to force themselves off the sofa, and for those who aren’t, cheese platters and wines — both locally produced — are available whenever the mood strikes. For something in between, the rose-dotted hills and gardens of Chateau Yering make for a salubrious walk: a brisk turn around the vineyards sure to put the color back into any city slicker’s cheeks.
