Entertaining areas are really good
The layout of the property and the common outdoor entertaining areas are really good, comfortable and have great character. The kitchen had high quailty pots and pans and sharp knives (unicorns in rental properties). We really liked it.
Great property and location!
We all loved our stay here - the property was great and was perfect for our group of friends.
An exceptional experience and very well put together place in a dreamy location. We will definitely return for a visit soon.
Our stay at I Villini Estate was absolutely fantastic. The estate was beautiful and a great stay for a group of 12. Everyone had their own rooms and en-suites which provided lots of comfort and a homely feel. The wood fire pizza oven is an excellent touch to the outdoor dining area as well as the fire pit! This is a beautiful spot for a large group with a homely, family feel. The estate was beautifully presented, very clean and stocked up with essentials. I would highly recommend the estate for big groups enjoying a weekend in the Hunter!
We will be back!
Wow! This house was the perfect place for five couples. The outdoor area was stunning. We couldn't have asked for more. This house is just designed for friends to relax and enjoy the countryside. The fire pit, pizza oven and outdoor dining areas were our favourite. The downstairs living area with two fireplaces was ideal when it started raining. Having enough bedrooms AND bathrooms for everyone was also a huge positive. We will definitely be back to I Villini.
We had a weekend away here and it was amazing! The house was very spacious for everyone, super clean and an amazing view! Would recommend for any big groups!
We'll definitely be returning
We had the most relaxing stay at i villini. The house is a true entertainer's house. We spend most of our time outside on the deck, lounging around and eating with our friends at the outdoor table. The pizza oven is great, just the perfect addition to the house. It's nice that the house is split up in separate parts so kids can sleep away from the noise in the evening. But at the same time everything is so close together. The pool area is prefect whilst some people swim others can lounge on the outdoor sofas without dividing the group. The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you need. The beds are comfortable and the bedrooms have a great size. Really handy to have an ensuite in every bedroom, but be aware that most of them don't have bathroom doors :) The property is such a tranquil place to escape, walking around the paddock we saw a lot of kangaroos and the kids loved exploring nature. We definitely want to come back!
Amazing place to stay. Couldn't recommend it more. Large, beautiful space, and amenities are great!
Beautiful and spaciousTuscan-style villa with pool
>We stayed for a family get-together with our 4 children and their families. The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated with a bathroom each. We had a great time and would love to return. The pool was perfect for the whole family.
Great location for a group
i villini estate is a great location for a group. The rambling series of rooms and villas make for nice areas where people can get their space but also come together for meals and fun.
Incredible professional service, the staff at Hunter Stays went out of their way to make my team feel welcomed and comfortable. Even topping us up with extra coffee for our creative brainstorming sessions. They recommended restaurants in the area and couldn't have been more helpful. The place itself is charming, organic and sprawling. Located on wonderful picturesque property with views and wildlife in abundance. I would re book for a work retreat or personal getaway in a heartbeat.
Beautiful place to stay for a weekend in the Hunter
Just off the Hunter expressway this place in Lovedale weas perfect for a weekend away, great layout with a number of outdoor areas, the bbq area is the best spot.
Fantastic weekend. Enjoyed by all!
Great group accommodation
Great group accommodation venue. So tranquil!
Relaxed, fantastic stay.
'i villini has a wonderful relaxed feel from the moment you drive through the gate. The villa looks straight out of a movie set, the home had plenty of space for our group of ten ladies, with good size bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms. The outdoor area is a fantastic space in summer. We really enjoyed our visit.”
Beautiful property, with a lot of character in a stunning location
We loved staying at I Villini. The pool and pizza oven nearby were a real hit with of group of three families. I Villini is especially well suited to large groups who want to privacy as there are a couple of detached studios away from the main house - perfect for teenagers. We loved seeing the kangaroos around the pool in the late afternoon and the hot air balloons early in the morning were magical. We were very appreciative of the property manager’s time on our arrival day when we had questions about the property. They came straight out to help us. I would recommend this property especially in the winter for a brilliant short break with friends or family.
Georgeous setting, great house, very private, everything you need!!
From the first experience driving up the olive tree lined drive we were blown away. The place is amazing. All rooms very private with own en suites. They have provided for everything you need. We’ve already rebooked to come back in May for the long lunch and can’t wait.
A beautiful villa, secluded yet central to everything we needed. Easy to use facilities, a delight to stay in. Already planning our return trip for next year. Thanks!
Stunning villa in an awesome location
A group of 7 of us stayed at I Villini and had the most amazing time. The property is simply stunning, with all the amenities you'd expect, plus going over and above. If you're looking for any sort of getaway in the Hunter Valley, this would be recommended. A pool, herds of kangaroos in the morning, fire pit, BBQ, pizza ovens...it really is a perfect location, with all the wineries on your doorstep.
Amazing Villa in Lovedale. Perfect for a group.
ivillini was absolutely amazing place to stay. We enjoyed the central communal around around kitchen, dining room, through to the outdoor dining, BBQ and fire pit. We also liked that everybody had their own private space, and didn’t feel like we were all cramped. There was plenty of space and area for the kids to run around. Kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of heating, and firewood for the fire places. Great weekend!! Thank you
Absolutely loved the property! The epitome of rustic charm. Will definitely be back ASAP! The team at HVS were so helpful and the overall experience was fantastic. Will definitely be using again in the future!
Our group really enjoyed our stay at I Villini - the house is very spacious and every room has it's own ensuite. The pool was lovely and we were impressed that a pool man was servicing the pool the day we arrived. It's a great property for those looking to relax with friends and family.
Loved staying at I Villini, beautiful property and nice and private. A great space for a large group, I will definitely stay again.
A lovely place to stay for a family get together. A lot of separate space for everyone and a very quirky fun place to stay..
We loved our stay...we got a great house with a good location with beautiful weather.
“Beautiful old style villa. Felt like I was in Tuscany enjoying absolute peace and quiet. Close to wineries and other facilities, will recommend”
