Our Pastiche Retreat has views of the magnificent Murray River from every room.
The Frames were designed to maximise the cliff top views of the Murray River. Our Pastiche Retreat has a bedroom that overlooks the river and what better way to wake up, witnessing nature’s beauty.
We love welcoming guests back to The Frames. It confirms our belief that our three luxury retreats are very unique. It was our pleasure to look after these guests. We hope for many more return visits.
Here is their review..
"Absolutely the best; worth a return visit . . ."
We have just returned from our second stay at The Frames which says something in itself: it was good enough for a return visit. Our first stay was in July: we arrived on a cold winter’s afternoon to find the villa warm and inviting with a blazing fire. This time the weather was much warmer and the private, outdoor heated pool was beckoning. As you walk through the villa every room, complete with quality features, appliances and devices, and amazing views, will elicit a soft ‘Wow’. The Pastiche villa affords views along the river from every room and the north facing glass wall makes the place lovely and warm in winter. We swam in the heated pool during the day and at night under an amazing milky way in July. So much thought has gone into every aspect of this accommodation and the result is an enveloping, relaxed, easy, comfortable place. The Frames also showcases local produce and there was an abundance of local fruit and vegetables in the well-stocked fridge, including the local bacon, which was deemed the best ever. Fresh flowers placed throughout the villa added another lovely touch. Good quality toiletries, fluffy towels, crisp bed linen, sharp knives, a decent heavy-bottomed frypan, and fine glassware are the thoughtful finishing touches to a place where nothing has been overlooked. The Frames is a front-runner for the best accommodation in SA. The owners, Cathy and Rick Edmonds, are friendly, thoughtful and easy-going in the best tradition of good hospitality. Completing the team, and a major asset to this accommodation, is the manager, John Little, an affable and capable man with an abundance of local knowledge. The boat ride on the river at sunset may sound at bit touristy but it is worth it, relaxing in the beautiful old vessel with wine and cheese, watching the sunset and the town lights come on. The Frames is an indulgence but is worth every cent and NOTHING is too much trouble for this team.
