A beautiful, unforgettable stay

“Coming here was a beautiful birthday surprise. The location of this Villa is perfectly quiet surrounded by gorgeous landscaping. From the moment you walk in the aroma, the music, the décor, the finer details make a beautiful stay unforgettable. Thanks for the breakfast and flowers – it was the cherry on top of a wonderful stay. We will be back.”

The reality is far more amazing than the images on the internet!

“A real reminder of some of our beautiful stays in rural France whilst travelling on foot from Lyon to the Pyrenees!! Such attention to detail gives a special ambience to this beautiful Villa.”

Michael and Kymberley

Such a gorgeous place

“For two years I have been asking my husband for a getaway for just the two of us and finally we are here and what a place! Such a gorgeous chateau full of love and happiness but also hope. This time away for us has been magical and just realising how strong our love is for each other has been a blessing. A beautiful place to stay, amazing hospitality. We enjoyed a wonderful stay. Perfect location and with thoughtful touches throughout. We would love to come back one day.”

Alison and Darren

Everything was amazing​

“Such a wonderful escape for us to enjoy. Everything was amazing from the beautiful landscape which makes you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside to the finer details such as a gorgeous morning coffee right down to the beautiful flowers. Thank you for the amazing stay.”

Dragana & Sash

We loved every moment

“The peace and tranquillity of this beautiful Villa was matched only by the gorgeous surrounds. Thank you for providing the perfect romantic mountain escape. My wife and I loved every moment we spent here on our wedding anniversary. We will most definitely be coming back.”

Michelle and Gavin

A great place to unwind

“This property is a hidden gem, very close to SkyHigh Restaurant. If you are looking for a calm and relaxing place to connect with nature and enjoy peace and serenity, this is a great place to unwind. The hosts are amazing and a lovely couple.”


A lovely romantic weekend

“The misty grey drizzle outside was a perfect complement to the warm cosiness of the upstairs suite. Having the time to relax, listen to the rain (and Kookaburras) and lounge in bed with the fireplace glowing was the perfect balm for our busy lives! Thank you so much for providing all that was needed for a lovely romantic weekend.”

Mike and Lynn

The perfect break away from the hustle and bustle of city life

“Upon arrival at Villa d’Amour, we were warmly welcomed by Janine and Gil which instantly made us feel comfortable, relaxed and in awe of this place and surroundings. Great attention to details in producing and capturing the French theme. From the kitchen to bathroom to upstairs retreat, just beautiful. Thank you for a relaxing time away here in the Dandenong Ranges away from the hustle and bustle of city life.”

Voula and Theo

The best guest experience

“Thank you so much for having us stay at your wonderful Villa d’Amour. A lovely place in a beautiful area. You have clearly given a lot of thought about how to give the best experience for your guests and all the little touches make a “big” difference. If we are ever in the area again, we would certainly look to stay again.”

Dave and Christine (Newcastle, UK)

Beautiful and amazing

“Thank you Janine and Gil for a wonderful stay in your beautiful Villa d’Amour. The décor is just beautiful and an amazing place to relax and unwind. Exactly what we were after, especially after the 2020 we’ve all endured.”

Tracey and Rob

The perfect romantic getaway

Thank you for your truly amazing Villa d’Amour!! You have left nothing to chance. It is so beautifully decorated and every little thing has been thought of. You have created the perfect romantic getaway.
