Lighthouse Olive Oil Cottage – Mannerim

Located on the Bellarine peninsula, the property is just a 20-minute drive from Geelong’s esplanade, or an hour and a half from Melbourne’s buzzing CBD.

The cottage is perched on a working olive grove, with locally produced and estate grown olive oil available for sampling or purchase. Oakdene vineyards don’t just offer sensational sights, but delicately crafted reds, white and sparkling, available for sampling at the nearby cellar door. The home is yours to enjoy exclusively, with four bedrooms and room to sleep nine comfortably. With four bathrooms, an expansive living and dining area, and acres of space in front of the property, there’s space enough for everyone to spread out and relax.

Prepare a feast to feed a family in the huge kitchen. Meals can be served on the large rustic wooden dining table, at the breakfast bar or of course in the expansive open areas. Shaded by hanging grape vines and a wooden awning, the al fresco dining settings begs for an afternoon of good conversation, great wine, and fresh produce. When your stomach starts growling, fire up the barbecue to cook up a storm. In the morning, enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee on the veranda, overlooking the endless views. Guests can also wander down to the idyllic on-site restaurant, Merne at Lighthouse. Enjoy a chef-selected menu, bursting with flavour and farm-to-table produce.

Lighthouse Olive Oil Cottage is the perfect for family and friends to come together and bond over good food, great wine, and cherished memories.
