It's very hard to beat this Tuscan-style hilltop mansion that overlooks the gorgeous Bellinger valley, near the alternative town of Bellingen. The friendly and attentive hospitality of hosts Suzanne and Fritz is a hallmark of a stay at Casa Belle and after 14 years, their guestbooks overflow with superlatives. There is also an eco-consciousness here that extends to natural pigments on the walls, filtered rainwater for bathing, sun-dried linens to sleep on and zero use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers.
The architectural melange of a Moorish courtyard, princely bedrooms, flagstoned floors and Italianate touches everywhere works perfectly in this sub-tropical climate. On cool nights there is an open fire in the impressive guest lounge to warm the soul and during the heat of the day the colonnades and interior are cloisters of cool. There are furnishing highlights dotted throughout the Casa - a cross-framed curule seat here, a Bolivian bell there - that make exploring this wonderful estate a delight. The bedrooms are sumptuous and offer luxuries like L'Occitane toiletries and two have spa baths. Generous breakfasts, private dinners and home-baked afternoon tea complete this utterly gracious picture.
For the ultimate indulgence, guests can enjoy a massage or facial in the privacy of their suite using organic products.
