Just over an hour’s drive north of Adelaide in the acclaimed Barossa wine region sits a clustering of high-end guest houses and an award-winning restaurant. The Louise, and its co-located fine-dining kitchen Appellation, has its foundations built on the gently sloping Marananga hilltop. The site boasts breathtaking views of blue skies, green pastures, and rows upon rows of vineyards.

Over the past decade, owners Jim and Helen Carreker have been focused on crafting the property into an enviable vacation destination. Hospitality is second to none, and the tiniest details are thought of to ensure that guests remember their stay for all of the right reasons. As part of Relais and Châteaux, an exclusive association of premium hoteliers, chefs, and restaurateurs, The Louise is the place to stay to savour the pleasures and relaxed tones of the Barossa.
