Located in one of the truly historical precincts of Tanunda, the house is only metres from Goat Square, (Zeigenmarket) the site of a mid 19th century farmers market, and original town centre of what became Tanunda, where many of the town’s oldest dwellings remain in well-maintained original condition.

Villa Maria is a short stroll from Tanunda’s main thoroughfare, Murray Street, with a choice of great cafés, bakeries and highly regarded restaurants. Tanunda is also a great central place to base yourself as you embark on an exploration of the Barossa’s amazing vinous and culinary adventures.

On returning to your lodgings after a day of wine tasting, Tanunda township offers opportunities to unwind as you mosey along Murray Street, lingering in classy boutiques such as Alabaster Store, Ironstone Cottage or one of the state’s great remaining bookshops, Raven’s Parlour, where enthusiastic staff will happily make holiday-reading recommendations.

And then out for a special dinner. New restaurants such as Musque and old favourites 1918 and fermentAsian provide culinary excitement and a celebration of locally grown ingredients and special bottles of wine.
