Here’s how it goes… He was very particular when he called to make the reservation.  He checked on all the details over and over.  Yes, your romantic escape will include rose petals and candles and bubbles and chocolates… Yes, it’s a private sanctuary. Yes, we think she’ll love coming here for a Valentine’s Day surprise.
When they checked in, she was so excited, she asked all about the local wineries, the view, the must-see sights in the area and all the fabulously romantic places to dine locally.  He looked, well, very, very nervous, almost a bit pale.  She was giddy with happiness at the magnificent view and all those perfect Valentine’s Day touches that her boyfriend had requested be ” just right”  for a very special occasion. 
We’re sure she enjoyed the local wineries, the magnificent views, the cool mountain air and the secluded opulence…but we know he had bigger things on his mind, one big, big question!  We’d seen it before…we’re a favourite romantic destination for Brisbane, Ipswich and Gold Coast couples, we know that look of nervous anticipation on the guy’s face…the romantic bliss on the girl’s…
So did he propose on Valentine’s Day?
Well, now that depends, after all, this could be your story!  It could be your romantic Valentine’s escape.  It could be your candlelit bubbly and chocolate and rose petal proposal that you’ll tell your children about some day… or it could just be the most romantic way to spend a Valentine’s Day, no ring required, it’s your story, tell it your way!  Maybe you’ll be proposing, maybe you’ll be proposed to, maybe you’ll just have a relaxing weekend away, spoiled with all those little extras.  Whether your escape to The Granite Belt comes with a ring or not, it’s a definite winner for a romantic getaway.  Check out our Valentine’s Day packages now.

Discover Why Stanthorpe is the Ultimate Escape this Summer

 

 

Escape Queensland Summer….To The Granite Belt

Officially Queensland’s coldest town, Stanthorpe is definitely the cool place to be this summer. Our warm, sunny days lack the high humidity of the city and make it enjoyable to get out and enjoy the many enticements that Stanthorpe in summer has to offer.

The Granite Belt’s perfect summer climate

During the day, Stanthorpe’s summer temperatures are, on average, 5 to 7 degrees cooler than Brisbane. Overnight, our temperatures can be up to 9 degrees cooler.  The Granite Belt is a great place to delight in outdoor pursuits, even in the peak of summer when the days are warmer, as the humidity is so much lower than Brisbane.  Perfect sunny skies are often followed by clear nights, perfect for star gazing.

Enjoy Stanthorpe’s amazing summer scenery

The best way to fully experience the Granite Belt in summer is to pack a picnic lunch full of fresh local produce and cool off in a tranquil stream in Girraween National Park. Or you might prefer taking a walk along the many creek banks of the area, enjoying a relaxing pace and soaking up the spectacular landscape. When all of these options become too taxing, you could simply enjoy the view from your Alure Boutique Villa.

Feast on Stanthorpe’s delicious, summer fruit

Amazing stone fruits and berries are harvested throughout the Granite Belt every summer and the juiciest grapes are getting plumper for wine making. Summer in Stanthorpe sees the production of some of the most delicious berries, apples, pears, rockmelon and stone fruits in Australia, as the mild temperatures are ideal for growing.

Stop and smell the summer wildflowers of the Granite Belt

Beds of fragrant lavender and gorgeous roses are a constant hive of activity with bees and butterflies, offering many ideal photo opportunities amongst the blooms. Keep an eye out for the bright yellow coreopsis and the lovely pink and white cosmos flowering on the roadside and in the orchards. It truly is a beautiful sight to see the wildflowers in bloom in the summer in the Granite Belt region.

We’d love for you to escape the heat and humidity of the city, to indulge in luxury accommodation at Stanthorpe in the heart of The Granite Belt.  Come and experience the Granite Belt’s incredible natural summer attractions for yourself.
