The SpaceDijon is situated down a winding stone path, looking out over a sweep of garden, sheltered by majestic pines.
From inside a queen sized bed faces double glass doors opening onto a brick terrance: the setting/view is quiet and peaceful, ideal for meditation or an evening glass of wine.
Inside again, on the other side of the alcove is a kitchenette, equipped with food basics, tea, coffee, cooking oil and the like, plus microwave, hotplate etc. Breakfast provisions are included in the price for the first night.
As well there is a dining table, couch, flat screen tv, DVD slection, books, games, CD player, flat panel heating and air con.
Outside the entrance door a huge market umbrella provides shade for al fresco dining or BBQ during the summer months.
Dijon is very private, having its own entrance and perfect for a restful stay, for either one or two people. Children are welcome, however, there is no specific bedding provision for them.
Guest AccessGuests have access to off-street parking and completely private entrance to the accommodation. There are no shared amenities, as Dijon is entirely self-contained. Unfortuantely we cannot accept pets as the property is unfenced and accommodation carpeted. Interaction with GuestsWhen you arrive at Dijon, you park in front of the brown shed, walk down past the tall gum to a path, marked by two white flower pots which leads to accommodation. The key will be in the door when you arrive and left on the table inside when you leave.
We live in a separate building on the same property and may or may not be present during your stay. If you would like to say hello we will be pleased to meet you or if you have a question or problem, we are happy to help.
The NeighborhoodThe township of Hepburn Springs has a history dating back to the 1850's Gold Rush and was later recognised and developed around the Mineral Springs that dot its landscape. One of the earliest is the Hepburn Bathhouse, now state of the art and within walking distance of Dijon.
Driving down the Main Street you will notice a number of Swiss Italian buildings remain from earlier days. Along with the poplars and pencil pines, they give a uniquely European flavour to the area. Yet surrounding the township narrow roads wind down through steep bush gullies and over creeks to merge seamlessly with the rural countryside beyond. In this direction you will find Lavandula: an old Swiss Italian lavender farm, providing wonderful walks, shopping and food in the sun.
Travelling south for 3 kilometres, takes you to Daylesford, a larger township comprising wonderful shopping, cafes, galleries, lakes either to walk around, boat on or swim in, as well as a variety of massage and therapy providers.
The Daylesford/Hepburn Springs region has a rich variety of things to do and places to go: among them Wineries, Bush Walks, Trail Riding, cinema, and my personal favourite the open-air Sunday Market. Getting AroundGiven the rural nature of the area there is little convenient public transport and although there are taxis and buses travel daily to Daylesford, (3 kilometres away) we would advise you to come by car to really enjoy your stay.
