Go Travel Leura: Back in the Day in Elegant Leura
The Greens of Leura, 26 Grose Street, Leura
Now is the time to think about accomodation for the October Village Fair and the beautiful garden tours.If you want a touch of yesteryear, but with the luxuries of today, The Greens offers just that.
The Greens is steps from Leura Mall shopping and dining on The Mall. From Gross street, this lovely B&B appears to be a small early-Leura cottage. However, appearances are definitely deceiving.
Typical of a bygone luxurious era, handsome ornamental mouldings, vaulted ceilings, beautiful doors and plush oriental rugs are features in the spacious rooms. The Greens offers graceful country elegance throughout the five spacious guestrooms. Stylish ensuites with double-spa and shower are offered in several of the rooms.
The next morning your Greens’ hosts start your day with a variety of choices in the light-filled breakfast room: something cold, something hot – something savory or sweet, reminding us of our European B&B travels. It is the unexpected things – herbs from the garden or home-made chutney or relishes that set Greens apart. A hot breakfast at The Greens is magnificent and will prepare you for a strenuous trek along the escarpment or a full day of shopping on The Mall. Check out the website for all the surprises at lovely and elegant The Greens of Leura.
