Leura, May 1, 2012 - Discerning travellers looking for an intimate, private Blue Mountains getaway have a new website to help them select from a range of luxury homes and complete indulgence packages. The website was developed for Lorraine Allanson, the owner of Mountain Whispers Luxury Accommodation, and goes live on May 1.

For over a century the Blue Mountains have been a luxury travel destination for travellers from Sydney and beyond. Whilst there are a number of luxury hotels in the region, many travellers want a more private experience and look to self-contained homes that they can have all to themselves. Through the website, Mountain Whispers offer four historic and luxurious homes to meet that need:

• Varenna - Leura, circa 1906: Perfectly located a short stroll from Leura village, Varenna is lavishly appointed in a grand style.

• Strawberry Patch - Leura, circa 1912: A cosy and private luxury cottage ideal for a romantic getaway, close to Leura’s restaurants and cafés.

• Leura Rose - Leura, circa 1914: A classic weatherboard mountains residence with period furnishings, warm fireplaces, indulgent spa bathroom and gourmet kitchen.

• The Gatsby, Katoomba -circa 1921: A character-filled Art Deco home with a separate self-contained cottage, located near Echo Point.

Indulgent Blue Mountains Experiences

The Blue Mountains are a unique destination where world-heritage national park meets historic villages and visitors can enjoy outdoor experiences or more relaxed pursuits as they choose. To help guests get the most from their stay (and to create a little magic for the many marriage proposals that take place in the mountains), Lorraine Allanson has put together a range of ‘Indulgence Packages’ to do just that. The packages include experiences and treats such as:

• Champagne helicopter flights over the Three Sisters and Jamison Valley
• In-house massages and beauty treatments
• Hand-made chocolates, French Champagne and scattered rose petals
• An in-house chef to prepare a gourmet three-course meal
