#1 Exclusive Private Chef and Luxury Accommodation

Suggested itinerary.

Escape and Unwind

Day 1. Head up to the Hills and start to reconnect with your loved one straight away by enjoying a mid morning cooking class exclusively to yourselves in the cooking school. Our professional chefs and staff are there to spoil you and you can chose your menu in advance making sure you learn those dishes that really do inspire you.  Your lunch will be long and lingering and include boutique matching wines from SA. No need to drive anywhere as you will be checking into your villa which is onsite and tucked privately away behind enclosed courtyard walls with gorgeous gardens awaiting.

Snuggle up with the underfloor heating and enjoy the winter sunshine as it streams in through the floor to ceiling glass. Play a movie, take a deep bath, enjoy a siesta and some tunes as your personalised playlist follows you from room to room through the top notch sound system.

Dinner can be a lazy affair in front of the TV or cook up a surprise for your partner in the chefs kitchen. There's always delivery if you can't be bothered.

Light up that fire pit and open a bottle of red..you deserve it after all.

Day 2. Head out for a yummy breakfast and then explore the magical Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens 5 mins from the villas. Follow the walking trail up to the summit and take in the views of Adelaide.

Alternatively book yourself in for a couples spa package at Cocos and forget the exercise.

Enjoy some wine tasting and lunch at one of the many vineyard cellar doors in the area and you'll still have time for a little boutique shopping in Stirling or a browse through Aptos Cruz Art gallery.

 

Package costs $860 per couple. Includes 1 night stay, private chef experience ( lunch or dinner with matching wines).

This package is available to schedule Mon-Friday lunch. For Friday night,Saturday and Sunday packages see Cook and Stay or Weekend Cook and stay packages.

Hire some bikes and take the Amy Gillet trail as it meanders through Wine, Chocolate and Cheese stops. You can follow one of our 5 day trips of recommended stops.

Stop for lunch at a cosy pub or linger longer at one of the winery restaurants after choosing a nice bottle at the cellar door.

After all that fresh air and exercise return home to your warm villa, kick off your shoes and enjoy the garden views.
There will be time to unwind and indulge yourself in a deep hot bath and glass of wine as our Chef will be busy doing all the time consuming shopping and preparation for you over at the cooking school.


With a healthy appetite in check our professional Chef will arrive at your villa door for your personalised cooking class or dinner date and show you how to create some impressive restaurant quality dishes.

Your package includes generous matching wines and we will leave you to enjoy dessert and your happy 'after glow' around the villa fire pit snuggling with your loved one.

Day 2. Make use of that chefs kitchen and cook up a hearty breakfast before you set off for day 2 in the hills. Head over to Kuipo Forest, Laratinga Wetlands, Mount George or Belair National Park for some stunning scenery, boardwalks and hike trails. Stop for lunch in Hahndorf and enjoy some wine and cheese tastings before taking a stroll through the bustling main street. Last stop before home has to be coffee and chocolate at Red Cacao Stirling.
