With the gently rolling Mount Lofty Ranges forming a backdrop, the town of McLaren Vale nestles amongst vineyards. It is a stunning sight and a welcome introduction to the historic area. A Scotsman, John McLaren, who named it McLaren Vale, originally surveyed this beautiful valley in 1839. Two small villages, Gloucester and Bellevue, were established here in the 1840's by migrants from Great Britain, In 1923 buildings from these villages merged, adopting the name of the valley. Many buildings from these early days can still be found in and around the area. Early life was founded on farming with and emphasis on cereal crops. Evidence of the prosperity in the era can be found in McLaren Vale today. McLaren Vale is now a busy town with about 2000 residents and makes an ideal base when exploring the McLaren Vale Wine Region and other attractions in the Fleurieu Peninsula. Southern Vales can accommodate up to 8 guests in it's four rooms. There are three ensuite double-rooms, and one twin-share room with its own separate bathroom.
