“Whale Watch & Gourmet Package”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

We absolutley loved our stay at Villa Cavour. We had 2 nights with 3 course dinners and breakfasts and the whale watch tour . It is very good value and we would thoroughly recommend it. Mara and Rocco are excellent hosts and the food was heavenly. Rocco is an excellent chef and we plan on going back to take a cooking class. The location is quiet and the accommodation very good. We felt right at home. Top Notch. Sue and Terry.

A two night Whale watch package is highly recommended. My wife and I have just returned of the most wonderful two nights staying at Villa Cavour with our hosts Mara and Rocco. The food, cooked Breakfast each morning and three course dinner each night, prepared by Rocco could not be faulted. Preparation,presentation and taste, wonderful, washed down with Italian red wine, I was in heaven. The whale watch was excellent with whales performing next to the boat, a beautiful experience watching these gentle creatures of the sea. It is criminal that in this day and age there are nations whom want to kill them. Thank you Mara and Rocco for a great two days. To any person planning a holiday, short or long the whale watch package is recommended, it is an all in one cost and you will not be disappointed. Byran and Pam.

Room Tip: Down stairs if you have a problem climbing stairs, otherwise all rooms are excellent.

So glad we chose Villa Cavour B&B for a three night stay in Hervey Bay.
It's in a quiet location and provides top class accommodation. Mara and Rocco are warm and friendly hosts who create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
A delicious cooked breakfast awaited us each morning with a superb cappuccino to
finish.
Rocco's dinners are a must. The wonderful aromas wafted up the stairs each evening.
Mara was very helpful with advice and booking for tours.
The whale watch experience will be a lifetime memory.

We stayed for 4 nights at Villa Cavour B&B last week and enjoyed tremendously the hospitality of Mara and Rocco. We were picked up from the airport when we arrived and were given a lift back for our flight home. My 16 year old son likes fishing so Rocco drove us to Urangan Pier one morning, stopping on the way to buy sinkers and hooks, lent us his fishing rods, bucket and gears and taught my son fishing tips. When Mara heard that we forgot to pack an international adaptor for our camera charger, she drove me to town from one shop to another until I found one. Rocco is a great chef and we enjoyed 2 nights of cooking classes and learned to make 6 varieties of fresh pasta, which were then prepared with Rocco’s own recipes. My son tasted for the first time hot chocolate made with REAL chocolate. I really felt like we were staying at a friend’s house and not as paying guests. One morning after breakfast, I took the plates into the kitchen and almost got ready to wash up!! I am sure there are other nice accommodations in Hervey Bay but it is the hospitality of our hosts that makes us want to return some time soon.

My wife and I spent two days at the Villa Cavour in Early July. Mara & Roco are a delightful couple who made us welcome and feel at home. The cooking class with Roco is a great experience and a discussion on his birthplace, Piedmont in Northern Italy was fascinating.
Spotlessly clean and comfortable, great hosts what more can you ask for. We will return.

Our weekend at Villa Cavour involved a superb dining experience on the first night and a thoroughly enjoyable Italian cooking class the next day. I particularly liked the delicious wine from the Piermonte region of Northern Italy. I learnt a lot about food and wine matching. The rooms were luxurious and we were made very welcome by Mara and Rocco. I highly recommend this stop over in Hervey Bay.

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony overlooking the pool.

The Villa Cavour was an exceptional B&B with great accommodation and wonderful hosts in Mara and Rocco Turina. We had 2 very pleasent days there from 9th to 11th July 2012 and experienced the wonderful hospitality of 2 people who are very proud of their Italian heritage.
We were readily welcomed and introduced to the arrangements for the ensuing 2 days.
The ensuite bedroom was very modern and spacious with excellent bathroom facilities and a king size comfortable bed. The only slight criticism was that the TV , although digital was fairly small for the size of the room.
The breakfasts were a choice of continental or cooked and Mara's version of scrambled eggs and bacon was a highlight. Breakfast was sheduled to your time preference.
The key highlight was the Italian food cooking lesson on the 2nd night with Rocco in charge teaching us how to make 5 varieties of pasta dishes with recipies from their home region in Northern Italy and perfected over their years in the restaurant business back home and in Australia. A lot of fun as well as a great learning experience. These dishes were subsequently prepared with delightful sauces and served at dinner and complimented with some lovely wines from their home region, during which both Mara and Rocco happily recounted their history and Italian culture and how they came to Hervey Bay. An entertaining and friendly evening.
Excellent value for money.
