The Chapel - Bella Cosa

The Chapel at Bella Cosa

Architecturally designed to resemble a quaint country chapel with a gorgeous mezzanine bedroom and it’s own private solar heated swimming pool, The Chapel is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. You may find you don’t want to leave but if you do there are over 80 nearby cellar doors to visit, amazing restaurants to dine at and beaches and trails to explore.

Included in the price is the choice of local breakfast provisions for the first morning or a bottle of Zonte’s Footstep wine.

All bookings direct from the website get an early check-in of 2pm and late check-out at 11am.


**Note. The Chapel is suitable for adults only. 


The space

The Chapel is one of three individual B&Bs situated on a five acre property, Bella Cosa in the heart of the McLaren Vale wine region. It used to be owned by artist Peter Maddox and is still the home to many of the sculptures he created in his time here.

Rent all three spaces together for a getaway with up to 8 of your friends or family.



Please contact me if you would like to organise a group booking for all cottages or a date in the future that isn’t available yet.

    Mel has put a lot of thought and effort into this place, the accommodation was great. we enjoyed the pool and the small little extra efforts of things breakfast goes a long way. The website provided also allowed us to experience places we probably wouldn't have been able to easily find. We had a great time , id recommend to anyone who wants to explore the McLaren vale region and enjoys, breweries wineries and distilleries.

    We had the best time for my partners 30th. The pool was an absolute highlight and loved the open plan. The accommodation is walking distance to cellar doors, restaurants, and distilleries. We would be very interested in staying at the chapel again!

    Fantastic Airbnb. Well priced for the area and incredible attention to detail, they’ve really thought of everything here, down to having a charger with three different types of phone cables and body moisturizer/after shave gel for men. Loved it.

    The Chapel was perfect for our long weekend away. Mel was very easy to communicate with and has left many thoughtful touches throughout the space, including the locally sourced breakfast provisions which were much appreciated. The pool was our favourite part and perfect for summer. The loft bedroom was also very cool! The location was great - only a stone’s throw from so many great wineries, but also nice and peaceful. We would love to stay here again next summer!

    The Chapel is a beautiful house in a perfect location for a romantic getaway. The house was very well equipped and had everything we needed to stay for a few days. Mel was an excellent host who provided clear instructions for check-in and check-out. She always responded quickly and was eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Overall an amazing stay, can't wait to visit again.

    Can’t recommend beautiful Bella Cosq enough. Made for a relaxing stay just a short drive from the centre of McLaren vale. ‘The Chapel’ was clean and had everything we needed as well as some special features like the forest to stroll through, stained glass windows, delicious provisions for breakfast and a great private outdoor area.

    Lovely little weekend getaway, my partner and I booked last minute and Mel was very accommodating to our needs.

    Definitely worth a visit in summer with the pool facilities. Close to Mclaren vale and pizza tecca.

    Nice little chapel to sleep in, great location and comfy to live in. Pool is nice but don't expect to swim in it if it's winter, solar heating is only for sunny days as stated.
