Connect-with-nature retreats made for switching off

When the busyness of life gets too much and an escape is essential, Botanica Editions awaits you. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Mt Riddell and Mt Toolebewong amongst stunning landscaped gardens, this haven holds two romantic, secluded retreats – The Willow House and Habitat House.

These Yarra Valley homes have been lovingly restored to blend in with their peaceful surrounds. Alongside Healesville Sanctuary and within the neighbourhood of Badger Creek, the lush green setting provides plenty of solitude, and it’s easy to see the gardens are treated with great care. These are true connect-with-nature retreats – ideal for a getaway to refresh with your special someone. Individual and private, each house exists in its own carefully curated space.

Eclectic mixes of contemporary design and repurposed furnishings, both houses have been thoughtfully pieced together with the result of unique, chic interiors. Each offers a stylish kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining areas, hotel-worthy bathrooms (plus plant-based wash products made especially for the houses), two inviting bedrooms, and a deck for soaking up the spectacular grounds. And to top it all off, you have access to your very own kitchen garden with veggies and herbs for the taking; there’s no need to go out for a garden-to-plate feast.

Close to the delights of the Yarra Valley, with its many award-winning wineries, restaurants, galleries and fresh produce, these self-catering retreats are wonderful bases for exploration. But once you’ve stepped inside your heavenly hideaway, you may find it difficult to get back out the door. Then again here, that’s just the idea.
