Squeezed picturesquely between ocean and hills, Adelaide is a sedate city, pleasingly plotted with cathedrals, parks and regal stone terraces. It is also extremely friendly and open-minded, with a burgeoning artistic community.....

.... Wildlife, water, wickets and wine are all at hand. You can stroll around town and visit its edifying museums, jump on a tram and rattle down to Glenelg beach for the day, or head for the Torrens River, which sweeps through the heart of the city. Whatever you do, Ann has just the place to stay. She is something of a traveller and her four very pretty (and very central) terraced houses are full of Indian and Indonesian furniture picked up on trips abroad. One has an inviting timber sleigh bed and painted balcony, below which the colonial tram quietly trundles. Others hold carved Indian wood, collections of Javanese hats and all have pretty oriental fabrics. There’s much contemporary Australian comfort, too, with an open-plan feel, sisal rugs on polished wood floors, maybe terracotta tiles in the kitchen, the sunken bath and cedar wood blinds in a glass-roofed bathroom, your modesty thoughtfully preserved with a canopy of wisteria. And you get an entire house to yourself, which is good value indeed. A generous continental breakfast is left in the fridge, although Ann spoke enthusiastically of a local flower shop that doubles as a café, so you may like to try that instead.
