A luxury Bed & Breakfast in McLaren Vale An ultra modern European style Bed and Breakfast situated in the McLaren Vale wine region, SA, with over 75 cellar doors to enjoy. Our Bed and Breakfast is only minutes away from the stunning coastline and beaches that influence so much of our lifestyle, culture and primary production. Seemingly endless beaches and a beautiful turquoise sea and you will never run out of space. Except for Australia Day, when the beaches are packed, there are plenty of room for everybody. A great place for all kinds of recreational activities. Go for a walk, play cricket, surf, swim or just relax under the Australian sun and, believe it or not, on all our beaches, Aldinga, Silver Sands and Sellicks, you are allowed to take the car on to the beach. There are also car free zones, if you prefer to walk down. A visit to the beach is a “must do” when coming to our corner of the world. Your hosts, Charlotte & Rune Gennerud, are of Swedish origin, hence the name the Viking Farm B&B and we have been in Australia since 2004. Even though we didn’t come by long boat, we are very experienced travellers ourselves and we have stayed in numerous hotels and B&Bs around the world. In our own B&B we have tried to combine all our knowledge and experiences with the genuine Australian hospitality and we have succeeded (at least that’s what our guests are telling us). Come and find out for yourself. We are animal lovers, but unfortunately we cannot accept pets, because we have too many of our own. We are bilingual, Swedish and English, and can handle a little French and German as well. McLaren Vale is where the vines meet the sea – a region nestled close to stunning beaches and the sweeping hills. A region of diversity and warm hospitality. You’ll hear the names of McLaren Vale wines spoken of across the globe – there are small family wineries, big award winners, historic icons and emerging legends. We are proud of all of them. Each has a story to share. McLaren Vale is one of Australia’s renowned wine regions, famous for producing some of the best wines in the world. There are more than 75 cellar doors, many of them family concerns with the winemaker hosting the cellar door. You’ll find a wide variety of grapes, but the Shiraz is what has placed the region on the world map. It’s second to none! Come and try! Many of the wineries have their own restaurants or they serve a regional platter to accompany their liquid inspiration. We will provide you with a map of all the cellar doors and, of course, tell you about our own favourites and some hidden treasures. We can also help you to arrange wine tours around the area.
