What our guests say about us....

Isabel, August 2019, 3 nights stay

'Perfect location. We didn't want to leave. Federico is the most amazing host. We so enjoyed our two day stay. The dogs were in heaven. We had to drag them away. Beautiful accommodation. Every little detail was well thought out. My daughter and I enjoyed our pampering session when we found the lovely face masks. How could you not enjoy a face mask by the fire with a beautiful bottle of red. 10/10'

Gabrielle, July 2019, 3 nights stay

What is not to like. Sophisticated space with everything you want, inside and out. Really. Enchanting grounds with a little lake, many garden rooms and walks. And animals; chickens, roosters, ducks, alpacas, sheep and a week old lamb, a peacock, and those all before you add the stunning native birds and wildlife. Our hosts were charming and we felt so welcome. Our staffy dog loved her first hobby farm experience so much. Modern country - for those who are looking for something other than a teacuppy, teapotty, spotty, dotty, mug of twee.

Lindy, June 2019, 1 night stay

Our overnight stay at Federico's Airbnb was just amazing and everything we had expected and needed at a busy time in our lives. Escaping reality and relaxing at The Vale was perfect. Federico is a perfect host who has thought of everything even though his Airbnb has not been operating long. It is very tastefully decorated with attention to detail but also with little special touches like heated towel rails, a fireplace ready to be lit, fully stocked pantry and fridge including fresh eggs from his own chickens! Federico himself was very friendly and helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had.

Federico is a wonderful host, so helpful and communicative even before our stay. The Vale is beautiful inside and out. Well tended variety of gardens to walk through and friendly animals outside. Inside is so well designed and comfortable, with cosy fire all ready to light. Extremely comfy bed and luxurious bathroom. Gas cooking, dishwasher and all amenities in the kitchen including bacon, eggs (delivered fresh from the chooks by our host!), great coffee machine, juice, snacks. Every detail was well thought out and created such a relaxing getaway. The train was not an issue for us at all. We highly recommend and look forward to staying at the Vale again.

Nat, June 2019, 3 nights stay

We stayed at Federico's place whilst we were doing a course in Mittagong, which is about 30 mins away. It was much nicer and better value than anything I had seen in Mittagong or Bowral. The studio is tucked underneath the main house, so you have complete privacy and can come and go as you please. Federico was the ideal host, coming to introduce himself on arrival and checking in with us mid stay to see if anything needed replenishing. The studio was sparkling clean, well equipped with everything you need including phone chargers if you've forgotten yours. The fire was a nice cosy addition for the cold winter night and there is ample fire wood. It has be thoughtfully and tastefully decorated throughout. And then there's the breakfast...well let me tell you - these guys know how to cater an air bnb! They had put on a spread of everything you could want and more. Thank you so much, it made all the difference. And of course we simply HAD to try out the bread maker and were so glad we did. Freshly baked bread in the morning, divine. I think you could say we liked this place, a lot. Thanks Federico

Vanessa, May 2019, 2 nights stay

Our stay was perfect and beyond expectation. The studio apartment is gorgeous, beautifully styled, very comfortable and set in the most stunning grounds. The gardens are so lovely and the perfect place for restoration and relaxation. If you are a fan of Autumn I would recommend a May visit. There are many seats scattered around the garden where you can sit and enjoy the beauty and the sounds. The farm animals are a real treat, you can wander the grounds and visit them in their areas. Federico was super, a great communicator andsuch a considerate host! The place was stocked with everything you might need! The pantry and fridge were kindly stocked, the wood for the fire stacked and a welcoming bottle of red provided. Don’t think twice, you will not be disappointed!
