Pied-a-terre, French for foot on the ground, refers to a second home, and this luxurious bed & breakfast really does feel like your second home. With all of its space and comfort you won’t want to return home.

Overall rating?  Outstanding

What makes Pied-a-terre different?
It really is like a second home, when you arrive it is very homely and well set-out.  Pied-a-terre is surprisingly large…  you wouldn’t know it from the front but this B&B has 5 bedrooms and plenty of room in between, with one of the bedrooms being upstairs with its own ensuite and study.

Accommodation overview
You will find Pied-a-terre In a quiet street that you may drive past if you weren’t looking for it, and each of its 5 bedrooms are tastefully decorated in a different style. There are fantastic artworks throughout the house, adding to the charm of the accommodation. It is the little things that Vicki does that make the experience all the more memorable. While it was 40 degrees outside it was beautiful and cool inside with air conditioning throughout. Pied-a-terre really is a place of space, comfort and luxury.

Facilities overview
Pied-a-terre has everything you could need on your break. It has a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast provisions and other basic requirements including bacon, eggs, fresh squeezed orange juice, tea coffee and a range of organic teas for when you just want to sit and relax. There is plenty of room to do just that, with a large dining room and lounge room with a fireplace, television and DVD player. There is also a sitting room with a second television and stereo opening out to the roomy backyard and outdoor entertainment area with BBQ.

Practical needs are covered as well with a laundry that also has an additional toilet, along with a washing machine and dryer, for those longer stays.  There is a large bathroom with bath and an ensuite upstairs catering for the fifth bedroom. Pied-a-terre also has off-street parking which is accessed by the remotely controlled side gate, giving you plenty of room to park multiple cars and even a secure lock-up double garage for boats, cars, motorbikes and other sporting needs.

Located in the heart of Mildura, only walking distance from the main shops and the Murray River, you don’t want for anything at all. It is central to all of the activities in the area including, the P.S. Melbourne, the paddle steamer that now takes short tours up and down the Murray through Lock 11, Moontongue Eco Tours, kayak tours down the Murray River from nearby Gol Gol and the markets in the main CBD area. Don’t forget to visit the local aquatic centre, with a wave pool for the kids (and the big kids as well) and Apex Park on the Murray River, which is the biggest inland beach in Australia.

Suitable for children? Yes 

Suitable for pets?  Yes, pets are welcome by prior arrangement. They can stay outdoors in the large, fully fenced backyard. There are parks nearby for walks.

Perfect for?

Why stay longer?
Why wouldn’t you want to stay longer? There is so much to do in the area and Pied-a-terre is so lovely you won’t ever want to leave.

Why you wouldn’t stay longer?
You won’t want to leave your second home to return to your first
