When you move into The Village, its just like moving into a new neighbourhood. Nine small households, or as we call them Casas, are clustered together to form a relaxed neighbourhood environment, with each Casa accommodating 6 – 14 resident suites.
Everything you desire in a typical neighbourhood is right at your doorstep. The village piazza at ground level is a vibrant and generous community space, where you can safely enjoy the range of lifestyle activities on offer each day. The piazza includes a trattoria, café, hairdresser, chapel and a range of community spaces.
Our village neighbourhood gives you choice to actively participate, so you to continue to live your life your way. By feeling connected and in control of how you spend each day, we want you to enjoy a fulfilling and meaningful life.
You’ll know you’re home when you step through your distinctly designed front door, straight into your Casa, the threshold to your private domain.
Within your Casa you will enjoy a lovely level of intimacy, with just 6 – 14 residents living in a true sense of community.
Each Casa is designed to support you in normal daily living, providing both a comfortable home and an enabling environment. As in any household, your Casa features a fully equipped kitchen, and cosy lounge and dining room. There are no imposing nurses stations, endless corridors or back-of-house functions on show.
And when you want that extra privacy, you can retreat to your own suite, your personal sanctuary, where you control your space. Your home, your way!
Everything has been designed with you in mind. Your individual suite boasts classic styling and elegant finishes. Soothing accents of ocean green, aqua or terracotta create a serene bedroom sanctuary, a space to call your own, where you can retreat.
All spaces flow seamlessly together – your private bathroom flows directly off your bedroom and features a walk in shower clad in quality stone surfaces.
Not to mention the convenience at your fingertips, with fully controllable multi-zone air conditioning and a suite of technology options, including Wi-Fi, telephone, emergency assist pendant an large screen TV.
At The Village, the finishing touches will make you feel right at home.
