St. Raphael

Over a century ago, Leura was the site of several large residences built by various orders of nuns on prime sites on the crest of the Leura hill. One of these, St Raphael (circa 1902) remains.  It is a former convent and local landmark. It boasts three elegant, self-contained holiday accommodations set in a private estate with a rambling Sorenson garden and views to Sydney.

The Convent, Old Chapel and Priest's Cottage are totally separate accommodations with no common walls. Each has its own private entry, outdoor seating area and adjacent parking, all stunningly set among the gardens.

St Raphael, with its amazing 270 degree views, is centrally located, just a leisurely 5 minute stroll (300 metres) to the heart of the charming Leura village, with its 20 plus Cafe, Coffee-shop, Deli and Restaurant venues, a Woolworths supermarket, a tempting variety of contemporary and quaint boutique shopping and art and craft galleries.

Enjoy a 2 for 1 Devonshire Tea (or 50% off) at Bygone Beautys Tearooms with every booking!
