About La Dimora

Once the secluded country estate of Australian entrepreneur Robert Holmes A. Court, Hidden Valley has a delightfully Tuscan feel, green and yellow chequered hills edged with pencil pines, terracotta roofs and a valley that seems to stretch into forever.

The east and north sides of the valley have been transformed into the La Dimora village by the award-winning Arcadia Group.


Each La Dimora Villa has been designed with luxury and convenience in mind. From bedroom to backyard, kitchen to lounge, you get a sense of space, unlike any other retirement village. 

It’s not just the design that we put our name to, it’s our service! We take care of the finer details so that you can simply enjoy each moment of your new life! A low monthly service fee covers all maintenance to the exterior of your home and garden, home insurance, management costs and of course, your full resort membership.  With a range of three financial models, including a non-deferred management fee option, you will find no better place to call your home!


Our community is as tight-knit as it gets! Each of our residents is full of life and are never shy to welcome new faces to the neighbourhood. Whether you prefer to entertain in your brand new villa or want to get amongst the action at the clubhouse, you can be certain that you'll have an entourage of new friends who are keen to join.


The entire resort is built around a sense of community; daily rounds of golf, afternoons on the bowling green, and even some high spirited camaraderie at The Grove’s regular trivia and event nights. All of which is just the beginning of lifelong friendships that are par for the course at La Dimora!

If it all sounds too good to be true, we promise you it’s a reality that’s closer than you think.

We've put together answers to some common questions about the La Dimora village.


Initially inspired by the founder's desire to meet the growing demand for high quality, purpose-built retirement communities in Australia, Arcadia Group was founded in 1999.


Arcadia Group has steadily expanded and established itself as a leading retirement living operator and developer. The Group now has a portfolio of eight retirement communities in Western Australian and Victoria.


Arcadia Group's points of difference are simple:


Our village homes & facilities are recognised as being the benchmark by which all others are measured.

Arcadia Group is a privately owned company.
We thrive on our innovative approach and we are totally independent.

Our primary objective is to partner with our residents to create happy, active communities with a range of personal care options that deliver peace of mind for the residents.

Our management, village managers and staff are all part of the Arcadia community.

“La Dimora Retirement Resort is the perfect setting. I see our role here in Victoria as not simply to provide the best possible resort experience, but to make sure each resident can enjoy that just-retired joy every time they walk out their door.”
