Located in sunny Marlborough, at the top of the South Island, New Zealand, Vintners Retreat has something for everyone.
This luxury boutique accommodation retreat offers spacious, stylish self-contained villas set amongst the vines and is perfect for independent travellers. Villas are private and peaceful and only 15 minutes drive from either the town of Blenheim or the airport, and a 25 minute drive over the hill takes you to Havelock, the gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds – a playground for sailing, fishing, walking and kayaking. Vintners Retreat is also 30 minutes by road from the Picton ferry terminal and the interisland ferry services to/from Wellington.
Each of the 14 villas is beautifully appointed, fully equipped to a high standard, and serviced daily. There are private patios, and complimentary WiFi and luxury toiletries are supplied. Villas accommodate up to 4 guests, and a three bedroom lodge accommodates up to 6 guests.
Self-cater in the morning with breakfast provisions available. Pick up a few provisions at the local stores and cook up an evening BBQ on the patio, relax with a glass of wine and enjoy stunning views over the vineyards. Or choose to dine at a choice of superb restaurants, all within an easy drive from your luxury villa.
Within the four acre grounds is a solar heated swimming pool, tennis court, boules strip and croquet sets. Bikes are for hire – ride through the vineyards or cycle along the banks of the Wairau River.
Marlborough is world-renowned for its wines and there are many world class wineries in the area. Lunch al-fresco or take a bottle or two home to your villa to enjoy with a BBQ on your private patio.
