Here’s some good news for travellers planning to visit the Swan Valley, one of Western Australia’s most prominent wine growing areas.

The 32 apartments are part of the Accor Vacation Club and overlook the championship Vines Golf Course.They are popular with families, couples and groups seeking apartment-style facilities for an extended stay.
These apartments are ideally located alongside Novotel Swan Valley Vines Resort (shown below) with its pool and spa, 36 hole Golf Course, Keishi Day Spa, gym, restaurants and bars, set in bush that is home to kangaroos and native flora and fauna.
Close by are the world-class wineries such as Houghtons and Sandalford, Margaret River Chocolate Factory, local cheese and foods producers and restaurants, boutique breweries and other tourist attractions.
Accor says the redesign of the apartments drew inspiration from the natural surrounds of the acclaimed Swan Valley, with “wall coverings and tiles in a rich palette” accompanied by finishing touches that give a feel of warmth in the cooler wine country.
“The addition of gas fireplaces in the two-bedroom apartments ensures an ambience of luxurious warmth, complemented by timber flooring, sandstone tiling and a stacked teak timber feature wall”.
The redesigned apartments also incorporate environmental initiatives such as LED lighting and water-saving facilities.
Accor says the a feature wall covered in an image of a wine cave is designed to make guests feel they are sleeping right beside the oak barrels in a peaceful wine cellar.
