Villa Maria Catholic Homes Carers enjoying being Cared For

Villa Maria Catholic Homes contacted us as they were wanting a personalised tour for a group of 22 home carers that were attending a retreat at Yarra Valley Estate.

They wanted a varied itinerary so the first venue we took them to was Raynors Stone Fruit Orchard in Launching Place where they had a great tractor tour – where they got to ride through the orchards picking, eating and tasting an amazing selection and variety of stone fruits with a commentary about the types of fruit they were trying.  And of course they then had to buy the seasonal fruits available, knowing exactly where they came from.

We couldn’t let them visit the Yarra Valley without sampling some Yarra Valley cider, so our next visit was to Meletos for a Napoleon cider and beer tasting paddle before heading to Tokar Estate Winery for a relaxing two-course lunch.  They enjoyed a wine tasting before lunch where they were able to choose which glass of wine they would like to enjoy with lunch.

Lunch was a great chance for them to relax and swap stories and catch up, and they loved Tokar with it very special views out over the valley.  And would you believe it, we literally had to drive past the Yarra Valley’s infamous Chocolaterie on our way back to Yarra Valley Estate so we naturally made a stop there for the ladies to sample some choccies.

It was a lovely two day break for the carers from their carer positions and we in turn thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to look after them for the day.
