French Cottage has some unique features like a huge garden where kids can discover nature and the local wildlife. Sunrise and sunset are special times, and on a moonless night (turn off the lights in the house) you can lie on the back lawn and see masses of stars. The Loft is situated above the garage with access via a covered breezeway to the house. It is spacious with a Queen bed, a sofa bed (suitable for children), TV, coffee & tea making facilities, table & chairs and a small bathroom. The Loft provides total privacy from the rest of the house.
Our family ran a French restaurant in Brisbane for 37 years and French Cottage was our escape from that hectic life. I also owned an art gallery so the house reflects these two passions -- a very well equipped kitchen and lots of art around the place. Now I am retired and my adult kids are busy with their lives, I wanted other people to be able to keep the house alive and enjoy the magic.
This secluded property is close to the tiny village of Mapleton with its historic 1880s pub. If you are looking for a short drive here are some suggestions: * 8 minutes drive to charming Montville, for a coffee and some retail therapy * 1 hour round trip inland (down the Obi Obi Rd) through the verdant Mary Valley via Kenilworth, Witta, Maleny and Montville * In Kenilworth there is an unrenovated 1930s pub with good lunches, and a cheese factory -- this is dairy country! * 1 hour round trip -- down the Hunchy Road in Montville -- to Palmwoods (lunch at Rick's Garage -- rockabilly music and hot rods) and Woombye * 30 minutes down the mountain to Yandina -- the Saturday morning farmers' markets and fabulous Spirit House restaurant (but you must book) * ... but most people just stay in the seclusion of the house, enjoying food, wine, laughter and the friendship of friends and family
