A charming 1880's church that overlooks the colo river.

The space

Charming Church on the of the Colo river. Has 2 bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has a double and a single. A cot is also available for toddlers. The church is on an acre of land and is surrounded with gardens. There are fruit trees and veggie. If you are lucky you should be able to collect some asparagus in the morning! It has a beautiful view down to the river and over the mountains. For those who have a boat there is a good public boat ramp 400m away at the Skeleton rock reserve.

You can read more about on the design files and enter Maison Balzac or see a video of it on the Chanel 10 site The Living Room series 4 Ep.5 at 26 mins.

Other things to note

These are the things we love doing:
Cycling along the river.
Wine tasting at Tizzana winery
Homemade scones and tea at the oldest church in Nsw, Ebeneezer church.
Picking up freshly caught prawns from the local trawler Gary Howard.
Lunch at the apple bar in Bilpin
A country drive and dinner at the Settlers Arms in St Albans
A walk around the Botanical gardens and lunch at Sean's Panorama after at Mount Tomah.
.....but our favourite is to bring all the supplies and not go anywhere!

The view from the house is lovely, and the jacarandas in the garden were very pretty. Remember to bring everything, food and otherwise, that you need, as there are no shops nearby. And definitely bring insect repellent in summer, and be prepared for bugs and spiders, as there aren't screens on the doors and windows – so opening up for a nice summer breeze means you will share the house with extra guests.

The church was a lovely stay for a quiet girls weekend away! Beautiful interior and great location near the river. Would recommend!

What an exquisite place! We had a supremely relaxing few days. Comfy beds, comfy couches, super stylish interiors and gorgeous light-filled space to hang out in. Great collection of books too! My main suggestion to other guests would be to bring everything with you because it's quite a drive to the nearest shop.

Staying at the 1880's Church by the Colo was like living in a beautiful Country Style magazine for a few blissful days. Decorated so simply and perfectly with a gorgeous garden and the Colo river nearby, it was all we needed for a much needed getaway.

A perfect little escape for the weekend. A short drive out of Sydney but you feel hours away. We had such a nice time relaxing by the fire with a glass of wine and making fresh juice with the locally grown oranges that were waiting for us on arrival. I'd highly recommend a visit if a relaxing weekend is what you're after, we can't wait to get back there! Like Pablo said on our arrival "it's good for the soul out here"
