Dara Cottage is a fully equipped, colonial styled, yet modern built holiday home in the lovely vineyard setting of Dara Vineyard.

Complimentary breakfast supplies consisting of our own free range eggs, bacon, bread, milk, butter, jam, plunger coffee, and Twinnings teas are supplied for your first morning.

The home is a colonial cottage with wood features inside, yet it was built about 8 years ago by a Greytown replica cottage building company. There is cozy west facing deck for afternoon drinks and a large private back garden where the kids can safely kick a ball around. A North facing sheltered porch provides solace for your morning coffee routine whilst over looking the vineyard.

Freeview TV will provide evening entertainment as well as a DVD player.The kitchen is functional and well equipped and there is also a cozy wood burner.

The cottage is perfect for that weekend get away on a vineyard and has beautiful views over our Dara vineyard to the hills beyond.

Free wifi is available and cellular coverage is great.

    Lovely setting private in the vines and olive groves very close to the village but felt nice and rural - didn't take long to feel on holiday, kitchen very well equipped, everything in excellent condition would stay again. To make it 5 star some bikes and a more comfortable couch to lounge on would have made it ultimate but that's me being picky!
