Kick leaves, kick old habits, and kick the winter bluues


The Grand Mercure Forest Apartments, owned by Accor Vacation Club, is a country retreat close to Daylesford and Ballarat in Victoria, that has been recently refurbished and offers cozy apartments with warming gas fires, adjacent to the integrated Novotel Forest Golf Resort at Creswick, in the heart of Victorian Spa Country.

The Resort is an easy 60 minute drive from Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport, or 90 minute drive from the CBD.


Perfect for an autumn retreat and to enjoy the season's changing colours, these two bedroom apartments all have large bedrooms with modern amenities and are complemented by deluxe living areas, including dining area, kitchen and balconies or terraces.

Heading to Victorian spa country allows guests to relax in a peaceful, rural, pristine or forest environment, visit the mineral springs – touted to cure all ills, enjoy fresh farmed produce, taste a variety of local wines and visit the winery cellar doors, (the local specialty being Shiraz). The local spa menus boast such treatments as rose-milk baths, organic facials or a hot-rock foot bath.
