Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen

If you were ever lucky enough to grow up in the country or visit country-dwelling relatives and friends, this house will bring those memories flooding back. Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat was built in the early 1900s and much of the original furniture is still dotted throughout the rooms.

Designed as an artist’s retreat, it’s not hard to see why Ballara would serve as a source of inspiration. The large rooms are filled with old-world charm; the gardens are impeccable and well manicured; and there are even ocean views from the backyard. The retreat has three generous bedrooms, which can be booked on a room-by-room basis. This makes Ballara ideal for both couples and artistically-inclined groups.

To help guests make the most of the creative vibe, Ballara offers all-inclusive accommodation packages that include a range of different activities. Perhaps you want to start your morning with meditation and yoga, then move on to oil painting or sketching – or maybe photography and cooking is more your style? However you spend your days, make time to head to the coast and explore some of the Yorke Peninsula’s stunning beaches.

Even if you don't have arty pursuits on the brain, you'll still find Ballara easily becomes your home away from home. A comfortable lounge is made for evening gatherings and chats, and the kitchen has everything you need to cater for you and your brood.
