Welcome to Villa Cavour Bed & Breakfast, Hervey Bay! Our modern B&B is located on the Hervey Bay promontory of Point Vernon, only 50 metres from the Esplanade. Relax in spacious, air conditioned bedrooms (each with en-suite and king bed) or in the gazebo by the pool.
Villa Cavour residence feature three very spacious, conditioned bedrooms with king beds and ensuites upstair, opening to the veranda, overlooking the swimming pool. In case our guests need two single beds accommodation or having problems with the stairs, we can offer accommodation in one room at the ground floor, instead of the one upstairs, with the same facilities.
Rooms are serviced daily and provide a TV/DVD player, mini-fridge and tea and coffee facilities. Free wireless internet is provided and a DVD collection is available. The combined lounge and dining room makes for a cosy space to enjoy an “aperitivo” before dinner, a “caffe’ espresso” or a “cioccolata calda”, especially in winter time when the fireplace will warm you up.
The B & B is surrounded by gum and mango trees populated by friendly little birds that will entertain you with their singing and can be fed from your own balcony.
There is also a vegetable garden, where organic vegetables and herbs are grown and used by Rocco to compliment his traditional cooking.
You can work out in the morning in the swimming pool, enjoy the spa or simply relax on the verandah in the afternoon while waiting for Rocco to cook you some fresh bread, grissini or pizza in the wood-fired oven on the gazebo.
Breakfast is your choice of full cooked or continental, served on your own balcony, along the pool or in the dining room. A very hot cappuccino with a freshly-baked croissant can make you feel like you're in one of the famous Torino cafés!
If you're feeling peckish Rocco is more than happy to cook some traditional Piemontese specialties and can also teach you some of the tricks of the trade with a range of cooking classes, starting from the basics, such as how to prepare fresh egg pasta or Bolognese sauce, to some more difficult recipes, like antipasti and desserts.
The menu changes day-by-day, subject to the availability of fresh seasonal product, to satisfy your personal requests... or based on the chef's temperament! We cater for vegetarians, gluten intolerance and other special dietary requirements.
Enjoy the Queensland climate and all that Hervey Bay has to offer; sun, sand and the natural beauty of Fraser Island! We can arrange tours and other activities (such as Hervey Bay's renowned whale watching), with pick-ups and drop-offs direct from our door.
