Looking for a private and romantic getaway? Come with David as he discovers the enchanted world beyond the huge wrought-iron gates of La Foret Enchantee.
Fee Menzies Stirton and Michael Whyte own La Foret Enchantee, and enchanted it is. The Cabin and the Palazzo are both nestled behind huge wrought-iron gates in the 4.5-hectare forest, far enough apart to remain private and romantic.
The Cabin is open-plan design with a mezzanine king-size bedroom overlooking the country garden and Margaret River. The furniture is antique and comfortable, and there is a log fire to curl up in front of.
The Palazzo has an octagonal, turreted king-size bedroom with an ensuite Villeroy & Boch marble bathroom. It has white marble floors in the kitchen, dining room and dressing room, with under-floor heating.
Both cabins have crisp white linen on the beds and snug white towels and bathrobes. They are fully self-contained with reverse-cycle air. Nothing you could desire has been overlooked, from croissants, smoked salmon, bacon, eggs, bread, cereal to a selection of teas, coffees and drinking chocolate.
The cabins have television, video, CD player with a selection of music, and reading matter of all sorts.
Set under an enormous chandelier hanging from a tall tree by the river is a long stone table where you can enjoy breakfast or dinner prepared by a local chef. A sprinkling of fairy lights puts the finishing touch to a remarkable setting.
A private masseuse will visit your cabin if you would like a relaxing Hawaiian massage. She has her own table, soft towels and aromatherapy oils.
