Piermont / Swansea
Found just south of Swansea on Tasmania’s East coastline, Piermont Retreat is like its personal personal kingdom.
Encompassing a variety of accomodation choices, from resort place ‘suites’ to self contained stone cabins, and more recent, modern day residences (we stayed in one particular of the new, architectural ‘Pampa’ residences intended by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects with interiors by Hecker Guthrie – it was amazing!), Piermont is a genuinely one of a kind place to continue to be. The total retreat is designed around a 180-calendar year-outdated homestead, that now properties an superb restaurant, with glimmering views throughout Terrific Oyster Bay.
The website is in fact form of baffling and I wasn’t Exactly confident what we had been in for – but like just about everywhere we stayed on this trip, Piermont exceeded all our anticipations.
As considerably as I can inform, the whole home, together with two non-public beaches (!) and many first stone buildings, is owned by a German / Australian family (Marie, Juan and their a few younger sons), who have developed the Piermont Cafe and retreat that is right here now, and who also dwell on the assets.
However the sheer scale of the house is overwhelmingly grand and gorgeous, the retreat by itself sits in harmony with character, consisting of various sustainably developed dwellings, both of those new and old, dotted around the web-site. Together with these structures and the cafe, attendees also have use of an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, stone amphitheatre and polo field – with pleasant horses who will pop above and say hi there if you carry an apple or a pear to feed them!
Other matters we relished in this space – The Waterloo Inn in Swansea is an unexpectedly remarkable pub restaurant in the most unlikely location, headed up by ex-Movida chef Zac Eco-friendly. Or, see Tasmanian devils up shut and feed wallabies and kangaroos by hand at East Coast Natureworld in Bicheno!
