Luxe Leura Cottage

Just a short scenic drive from Sydney lies the gateway to the Blue Mountains and the Casa Piccola Mountain Cottage. It's the perfect mix of yesteryear charm and modern comforts to base yourself for adventure in all directions. Just a few minutes walk from the front door, and we were in vintage heaven with any number of quirky and quaint local shops to visit, and in the surrounding townships which are only a stone's throw away it only gets better.

Our fave location was the Elysian Rock, where we walked and watched the sunrise both mornings while we were there. Leura Mall is filled with amazing food, coffee and the craziest collection of almost everything you can imagine, and you’d be hard-pressed not to find something to fall in love with.

Back at the cottage, we basked in the sun-drenched back yard, tuned out with the bird song and re-energised for the abundance of amazing tracks and trails, waterfalls in the surrounding mountainside.

We spent the afternoon winding our way down through mountain trails and ended up at the bottom of a stunning waterfall at Pools of Siloam crashing on to an idyllic little sandy beach. So close to home yet felt like we were worlds away, I can not wait to return.

Things We Did

  • Lookout
  • Waterfall
Elysian Rock
Only a 1km down the road was the stunning landscape lookout of Elysian Rock. We went to watch the sunrise and It was like nothing I have seen before, surreal painting-like views and so close to home....
Pools of Siloam
Everything good to see in little Leura is all in walking distance. Pools of Siloam being another top attraction. A beautiful walk in the bushlands leads you to the majestic Pools of Siloam. It was so peaceful, relaxing and the perfect place for a dip to cool down on a hot summers day....
