Pied-a`-terre – Mildura’s hidden wonder
  • Red walls of the entry
  • Sumptuous black leather lounges
  • The little “extras” chocolates on arrival
  • Luxurious linen and crisp white sheets
  • Fully equipped kitchen

Pied-a`-terre is a French phrase for second home and that is exactly what the owner has achieved. This lovingly refurbished and renovated 1940s cottage is a self-contained B&B and is situated in a quiet street just a short stroll from Mildura’s CBD and the Murray River.

From the moment you walk through the front door you are transported to an idyllic luxury escape. You will be greeted by wine and chocolates and as you walk further through the cottage you will find everything you need to make your stay enjoyable and homely.
It is obvious the owner of Pied-a`-terre is passionate about the house, with a flair for decorating and yet still making you feel at home.

Your visual senses will come alive at the striking red walls of the entry while each of the five queen bedrooms have their own colourful themes from cool white to hot crimson, all with ample storage space and unique ambience. Fluffy white robes and quality guest amenities add that little bit of luxury to your stay.

Pied-a`-terre’s living area invites you to relax or play as you see fit. It has leather couches you can sink into and an LCD TV with DVD and surround sound. Selections of DVDs are on hand as are board games, books and magazines. Or you may wish to take in the afternoon sun in the sunroom is at the rear of the house with double French doors that open to the outdoor area.

Pied-a`-terre has a fully equipped kitchen and dining room to test your culinary skills with Mildura’s bounteous produce or whip up a gourmet breakfast with the ample supply of provisions, freshly ground coffee, juice, cereal, bacon, eggs and a selection of teas.
Perhaps you would like to dine in? There is a huge outdoor entertaining area with a stone-top table and wrought-iron chairs and a built in BBQ to enjoy the great Mildura weather. On those cooler nights there is an outdoor gas patio heater to keep the winter chills away.

Should you be looking for a night in, be it a romantic night for two or entertaining a group, we are able to arrange gourmet platters and salads so that you can spend more time enjoying your stay. You only have to read through the guest books to be wowed at the comments left by more than happy guests, whose common thread is about the owners’ attention to detail and making sure their guests enjoy a memorable stay.

Pied-a`-terre is proud to be shortlisted in the 2010 TakeABreak Awards. Check out Pied-a`-terre on takeabreak.com.au
