Lavandula | Swiss Italian Farm


Lavandula | Swiss Italian Farm

Lavandula is a very European experience.

It looks beautiful, it’s Swiss Italian, it lifts the heart.

Out in the countryside ten minutes north of Daylesford, drive over the creek, walk up a poplar-lined driveway. You'll find around the cobbled courtyard a cluster of farmhouse buildings: the house, the Barn, and the Stillroom. Italian-speaking Swiss immigrants built the rustica in golden stone and ran a dairy farm for 4 generations from the 1860s.

Twenty years ago Carol White bought the property and was inspired to re-create the traditional mixed farm lifestyle of those earlier settlers. The stone farmhouse has been restored and lived in. Now you can admire its superb simple rural Italian architecture.

Beyond the rustica is La Trattoria, the café where you lunch al fresco in the ash grove or snug inside a timber building or in the cool stone loggia.

Look up. There’s the garden, lavender fields, farmyard, the olive & chestnut groves, the vineyard - and in the distance the ancient volcano that delivered the good soil. The garden was designed to enhance Lavandula’s Italian style and seasonally grows food for the café.

You can walk, sit, picnic, play boules, or the children can seek out farm animals.

Explore, relax. Feel the grass between your toes.

Listen to the birdsong.
