Piermont / Swansea
Found just south of Swansea on Tasmania’s East coastline, Piermont Retreat is like its very own private kingdom.
Encompassing a selection of accomodation offerings, from lodge home ‘suites’ to self contained stone cabins, and newer, up to date residences (we stayed in just one of the new, architectural ‘Pampa’ residences intended by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects with interiors by Hecker Guthrie – it was impressive!), Piermont is a certainly unique put to remain. The total retreat is built about a 180-year-aged homestead, that now homes an outstanding restaurant, with glimmering views throughout Fantastic Oyster Bay.
The website is really kind of puzzling and I was not Particularly confident what we had been in for – but like everywhere you go we stayed on this excursion, Piermont exceeded all our anticipations.
As far as I can notify, the complete assets, together with two non-public shorelines (!) and numerous authentic stone structures, is owned by a German / Australian loved ones (Marie, Juan and their 3 youthful sons), who have established the Piermont Cafe and retreat that is below nowadays, and who also reside on the assets.
However the sheer scale of the property is overwhelmingly grand and beautiful, the retreat itself sits in harmony with character, consisting of different sustainably built dwellings, each new and aged, dotted about the website. Together with these structures and the cafe, visitors also have use of an out of doors swimming pool, tennis courtroom, stone amphitheatre and polo industry – with helpful horses who will pop over and say good day if you convey an apple or a pear to feed them!
Other items we enjoyed in this spot – The Waterloo Inn in Swansea is an unexpectedly remarkable pub restaurant in the most unlikely location, headed up by ex-Movida chef Zac Inexperienced. Or, see Tasmanian devils up near and feed wallabies and kangaroos by hand at East Coast Natureworld in Bicheno!
