Lucy’s Greatest Tassie Vacation Itinerary Ever!

Piermont / Swansea

Positioned simply south of Swansea on Tasmania’s East coast, Piermont Retreat is like its personal non-public kingdom.

Encompassing a variety of accomodation choices, from lodge room ‘suites’ to self contained stone cabins, and newer, up to date residences (we stayed in one of many new, architectural ‘Pampa’ residences designed by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects with interiors by Hecker Guthrie – it was spectacular!), Piermont is a really distinctive place to remain. The entire retreat is constructed round a 180-year-old homestead, that now homes a wonderful restaurant, with glimmering views throughout Nice Oyster Bay.

The web site is definitely form of complicated and I wasn’t EXACTLY certain what we have been in for – however like in every single place we stayed on this journey, Piermont exceeded all our expectations.

So far as I can inform, the entire property, together with two non-public seashores (!) and varied authentic stone buildings, is owned by a German / Australian household (Marie, Juan and their three younger sons), who’ve created the Piermont Restaurant and retreat that’s right here at present, and who additionally dwell on the property.

Although the sheer scale of the property is overwhelmingly grand and delightful, the retreat itself sits in concord with nature, consisting of varied sustainably constructed dwellings, each new and previous, dotted across the web site. Alongside these buildings and the restaurant, company even have use of an out of doors swimming pool, tennis court docket, stone amphitheatre and polo area – with pleasant horses who will pop over and say hey in case you convey an apple or a pear to feed them!

Different issues we loved on this space – The Waterloo Inn in Swansea is an unexpectedly superb pub restaurant in essentially the most unlikely spot, headed up by ex-Movida chef Zac Inexperienced. Or, see Tasmanian devils up shut and feed wallabies and kangaroos by hand at East Coast Natureworld  in Bicheno!
