Retirement Living

Barossa Village offers a range of independent retirement living options and support services. Our independent living homes, cottages and units are located throughout Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Angaston – we currently have 180+ dwellings, and plan to build another 8 during 2018-2019. Most of our homes are offered under a standard License to Occupy, but we also have a small number of rental units.

Barossa Village’s model of developing our housing in smaller groups or clusters means we can offer higher standards in independent retirement living. We have won many State and National awards, and we are always looking at better ways to assist new and existing retirees to be comfortable in their homes.

Our Licence to Occupy fees start from as little as $165,000 and range through to $360,000 – the fee is dependent on the size, age, location and amenities of the individual home, cottage or unit. This flexibility across a broad fee spectrum enables us to cater to a wider range of potential clients.


Barossa Village does have some independent retirement cottages available for rent, making retirement living affordable for those who may not be able to licence one of our homes. Our rentals are mainly one bedroom, but we do have a limited selection of  two bedroom cottages.

We manage such a large number of homes with different floorplans, locations and outlooks that we are unable to supply specific details about each individual property on our website. We recommend you complete a Registration Of Interest form and send it through to us, so that when a home, cottage or unit that meets your individual needs becomes available, we can contact you immediately. If the property does not suit your needs or the timing is inappropriate you are under no obligation to proceed.


If you are interested in licensing or renting a Barossa Village home, cottage or unit, please call the office on (08) 8562 0300.



General Service Fee
A fortnightly Maintenance Service Fee is charged to the residents of all independent living units. This fee is used to cover the daily, quarterly and annual costs and services usually associated with owning and maintaining a home.

Those costs and services include items such as council rates, water rates and usage, building insurance, general maintenance, gutter cleaning, maintenance of front gardens and communal areas, servicing of air conditioning systems, hot water systems, ovens and hot plates – we even change light globes, replace tap washers, change smoke detector batteries and hang up your pictures.

Of course there are also the expected outgoings and the operational costs of running our Retirement Village.

Your neighbours in our Village are people like yourselves – everyone is aged over 55 and is either retired or semi-retired. Like you they choose independent retirement living to have a smaller home, less maintenance and security worries, while still maintaining their independence and freedom.

For many this enables them to free up capital so they can enjoy annual trips whilst knowing their home is safe and secure in the Village environment.

Home Care

Residential Care

  • "My Dad really feared losing his independence but after Mum died he wasn't eating properly and had several falls. The Residency staff were very sensitive to his needs and made sure he had plenty of space and time to adjust when he moved in. Now he has made several mates, has put on weight and is telling jokes again."
    John (51), Tanunda
  • "I just wasn't aware that a thing like Transitional Care existed. Mum was recovering from a bowel operation and we just couldn't lift her so Barossa Village arranged a care program until she was back on her feet - which freed us up to cook her healthy meals and spend quality time with her."
    Bronwyn (49), Angaston
  • "We love packing the caravan and just heading off for a couple of months when we feel like it. Our cottage is monitored for security and the garden is maintained while we are away - it makes life very easy and flexible."
    Bill (65) and Maureen (62)
  • When both of my children went off to university I was at a bit of a loose end. I didn't really want to return to full time work but I knew I still had a lot to give. Now I have a weekly meeting with several Barossa Village residents - we have a coffee, a chat and I help them with their shopping. It's a rewarding part of my week.

  • "My 80 year old mother had a fall and broke her shoulder. The level of service offered by Barossa Village was incredible - showering, dressing, driving to doctor's appointments. I live interstate and couldn't be with her all the time. It made me feel a lot happier that she was well looked after and she also recovered quickly."
    James (48), Melbourne
  • "I live by myself in my own home at least 20 kilometres from Barossa Village. But I get involved in all of their social programs including trips to wineries, picnics and film afternoons. I really look forward to my days out and a few laughs."
    Jane (82), Angaston
