Adagio: "Play Slowly"

Slow Down, "Breathe it In' and Be at Ease.


Adagio is Italian for "at ease" and on a music score means "Play Slowly". Adagio in Auburn invites you to shed the stresses of  the city, listen to  carolling of birds, a chorus of frogs and "be at ease" for a while in your busy life.


Our B&B  is situated in the charming town of Auburn in the renowned Clare Valley Wine Region  only 1hour 20mins from Adelaide. Adagio is quietly nestled alongside the Wakefield River in Auburn providing the perfect location for your city get away. Auburn is at the southern most end of Clare Valley and  retains the cultural charm that  the Clare  Valley is known for in addition to being the home of world renowned wineries  and award wining restaurants. 

At Adagio your comfort is assured through each and every season.


In Summer: Sit at our table under dense dappled shade, breathe in the atmosphere and enjoy a chilled Clare Valley Riesling

In Autumn: Revel in cultural  weekends such as; Day on the Green, Blenheim Fest, Clare  Races, Clare Valley Gourmet.

In Winter: Shake off the Winter chill by snuggling into our soft velvet couch by the wood fire

In Spring:  Soak up the sunshine on the patio, listen to the chorus of frogs, the Kookaburra's call or instead sit under the  romantic arms of the shaded blossom tree with a coffee and exhale.

"Wow!" Melissa, from the moment we pulled into the driveway our impression was that we had chosen well. Opening the door to the lovely cottage, then exceeded our expectation. The wine, yummy slices and all the food provisions were truly amazing. That bed...was like heaven and attention to detail - well let's say, I have some work when I get home! It was lovely to meet you in person and I knew you would be a great host, given our exchange in emails. We will pass on our enjoyment and the hospitality of this beautiful place to our friend's"
