Set amidst the vines and landscaped gardens is our traditional timber framed barn, containing both wine tasting room and self-contained attic accommodation.
Come and spend a night in our lovely traditional wooden barn, situated in the landscaped grounds of our Vineyard at French Farm. Whilst only a short stroll from the waterfront, you will enjoy the peace and tranquility of this picturesque valley on the shores of Akaroa Harbour.
The Barn has a romantic timber lined Attic Room with a sleeping area containing one queen size bed and two large singles, as well as a sitting area with TV.
Whether it be for a quiet getaway, enjoying a glass or two of our famous 'French Peak' Pinot Noir in front of the log burning stove, or coming home after a day on the beach, or an energetic hike in the hills, in time to cook up a BBQ by the Petanque Court, we are sure you will enjoy your stay at this very special place and want to come back for more!
