Villa Howden, Howden, near Hobart

The last five star outpost before you reach Antartica! Those looking for luxury out of the city should look no further than this newly restored delectable French style chateau with more than a hint of panache. Lovely gardens and an indoor heated pool complete the setting which is a perfect compromise between City and Escape. A great stop off before heading to Bruny Island or the Far South, and a lovely location for those wanting to explore Hobart and the surrounds without staying in the city itself. Afternoon tea is fast becoming an institution at Villa Howden.
