Franklin Villa

Today’s post is not about food. However, to me, great food, wine and company also includes great venue’s. I was very privileged recently to spend 3 days helping to run an intimate seminar event at a magnificent old Queenslander home in Brisbane called Franklin Villa.

Lovingly restored from 6 flats and returning to an authentic Queensland guesthouse, Franklin Villa combines a mix of antiques and old world charm. Within walking distance to the West End dining precinct, Brisbane Convention Centre and South Bank, Franklin Villa makes an ideal weekend getaway location or venue for that special occasion.

You can book a single room (there are 4 individually appointed guest rooms) or the entire house. Each guest room has its own bathroom and air conditioning, there is wireless broadband access, a billiard room, lounge room with plasma TV and Foxtel and a fully equipped kitchen to die for. There is also a 20m heated lap pool and all set in established tropical gardens with magnificent views of the city skyline.

So next time you are looking for somewhere to escape for a quiet weekend, take a look at Franklin Villa and experience a little piece of yester year in your own backyard.
