Joie de Vivre - Get amongst the VINES

Family-friendly holiday home in Melbourne
we love this because..

It's our dream to escape to the country. Even if it is only for a weekend!

JOIE DE VIVRE is our dream escape to your own little piece of paradise with picturesque 10-acre views in Red Hill, in the heart of the peninsula's wine region.

When we drive down the quiet country lane with the tree-lined driveway we know we have the most relaxing weekend waiting for us. As interiors addicts, we feel like we have walked into a magazine cover. What to look at first? The marvellous french inspired cast iron fireplace or the facing chesterfield sofas or the view in the background.

We really never want to leave, we walk the dog in the grounds and sit on the jetty in the dam and ponder the meaning of life while watching the fishes swim by. The kids are completely engrossed in the playground, tennis court or many things to do.

The property is located right next door to Main Ridge Estate and across from Red Hill Cheese, two wonderful gourmet destinations that we don't even need to get in the car and drive to. The vines for Main Ridge Estate are in fact at the back door of this property.

Please note that there is a security camera located on the roof of the pump shed by the water tanks. The camera is pointed towards the equipment shed and has no view of the main house, playground or dam. This camera is not active during your stay.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE - Property is suitable for maximum of 8 adults plus additional children.

*COVID - if you are unable to travel due to COVID restrictions and/or we are unable to host you then we will contact you to offer a change of dates, credit note or refund.


What fun! a new house to visit that lets four-legged friends like me sleep inside.

Yay! a huge garden...but no fences. I will have to be on my best behaviour and not wander off. Love the trees and bushes, there are lots of interesting smells. Are those possums in the trees?

And there's a special basket just for me. No way! What's in there? Ooh, ooh! a treat from PAWDINKUM. I LOVE THIS PLACE.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Property !!
We booked this amazing property for family getaway with our adult children their partners and our fur babies. It has been an unforgettable weekend for our family and every possibility that this will be the start on an ongoing family tradition. We enjoyed family tennis competitions, walks with the dogs on the expansive property, wine & cheese on the deck whilst taking in the view and card games by the fire in the evenings. A big thank you to the owners for allowing us to enjoy their beautiful home. It is beautifully appointed in every way and we will most certainly be back. Thank you!

5/5 Excellent
