My husband and I stayed at Tarascano self contained cottages for 4 nights. These cottages are 5 minutes drive from the Daylesford town. We had a great time. Ken and Linda who have been in hospitality for some 30 years were excellent hosts and took care of us very well. They were very warm, genuine, hospitable and welcoming. Not pretentious compared to some of the other accomodation in the main town.
Ken gave us lots of suggestions on the places to visit and the restaurants to go to. He was on the mark on all accounts.
If you want a place to chill out from city life this is the place to go. The cottages are very comfortable and I would rate them at 3+ to 4 based on the facilities, aspect, cleanliness, food, accessibility, surroundings and hospitability. Beautiful surroundings and you can see the hazy milky way as there are no city lights!! - pitch black. We felt very refreshed and recharges from our stay!!. Linda is a great cook!!.
I highly recommend this place and will return. Thanks Ken and Linda!!.
