Full accommodation information

The Louise is nestled in one of the world’s finest wine growing regions, The Barossa Valley in South Australia, only an hour’s drive from glorious Adelaide. A prestigious property, The Louise is part of both the Luxury Lodges of Australia and Relais & Chateaux collections, a sign of their commitment to offering the very best in cuisine, hospitality and preserving the local heritage.

Offering understated elegance set in the exquisite Barossa Valley, The Louise is surrounded by enchanting vineyards and olive groves. The property comprises 15 suites, each with their own private outdoor space, where you can lounge with a glass of locally-produced wine and plate of cheese, taking in the magnificent sunset views.

This luxury vineyard retreat encompasses the multi-award-winning Appellation Restaurant, at which the menu is focused on locally-sourced produce and a daily changing Chef’s Tasting Menu.

Other facilities at The Louise include the Sunset Terrace and Wine Bar adjacent to Appellation Restaurant, a fitness centre and infinity edge lap pool with a sleek black granite sundeck.

The area is a wine connoisseur’s dream, home to over 100 wineries and 70 boutique cellar doors open to the public. Gourmands are also treated to incredible dining experiences in the Barossa Valley, with several award-winning and hatted restaurants in the region.
