ACTIVITIES

Close to The Villas Barossa is the tiny village of Marananga, established by German settlers in the 1840’s, and which is situated in arguably one of the most beautiful areas of the Barossa.

Marananga is a delight to explore, and home to numerous cellar doors, five of them within an easy walk of The Villas:

Greenock Creek 1 min walk
Two Hands Wines 2 min walk
Heritage Wines 3 min walk
Tscharke 8 min walk
Barossa Valley Estate 10 min walk
And just a short drive to Whistler Wines, Torbreck and Schubert Estate.

The award-winning Seppeltsfield Road Distillers are near neighbours, offering the option of a sunset gin on their deck, or back at your villa. Also within walking distance, renowned restaurant Appellation at The Louise is a culinary delight with an encyclopaedic wine list, and the burgers at Bar Louise are a local favourite.

For cycling enthusiasts, a network of off-road cycle trails wind through vineyards and towns. Or consider a sunrise balloon flight, a helicopter flight or a Segway tour. The Barossa’s heritage can be seen in more than 20 historic churches, or follow a heritage trail. Private galleries and art spaces are dotted across the region, or browse for antiques, homewares, fashion and regional produce.

ENVIRONMENT

From the owners:

“One of the guiding principles in the design of this project was a development that was sensitive to our local environment. We’re incredibly grateful to be the current custodians of this land, and we’ve adopted the following environmentally sensitive practices to ensure that The Villas – Barossa continues to be ecologically responsible:

  • Construction & Grounds

Ecoshelta Villas constructed with fully modular frame and Structural Insulating Panel (SIPS) floor, wall and roofing systems
Double glazed windows and use of passive solar design to optimise heating and cooling.

Use of ceiling fans, 1 metre roof overhangs and cross-ventilation for cooling, with energy efficient reverse cycle air conditioning for temperature extremes
Use of energy-efficient lighting (LED & dimmable)
Use of solar-powered landscape lighting
Landscaping with native plants indigenous to Marananga and the Barossa
Rain water captured in tank and reticulated through The Villas via a UV purification filter. (South Australia is an extremely low rainfall state – in times when rain water is scarce, mains water is used in The Villas)
Installation of wastewater treatment facility and reticulation of all treated waste water to landscaping

  • Cleaning & Amenities

Use of bulk dispensers for Vasse Virgin amenities rather than single-use containers, thus reducing waste
Separation and recycling of plastics, paper, glass, cans, including placing recycling bins in Villas
Use of 100% recycled paper for toilet paper, and paper towels
Use of non-chemical, natural cleaners
Cold-water washing and air drying where possible

  • Produce

Using local produce as first priority, and then South Australian products
Purchase of food ingredients in bulk whenever possible, minimizing packaging waste
Use of bulk, glass storage containers for condiments rather than single-use containers.
Use of Barossa Coffee Roasters locally-roasted, organic plunger coffee
No single-use coffee pods
