The Barn on Valley Road Vineyard

Come and stay in the romantic attic room of a traditional Timber Barn situated in the grounds of our lovely 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. Here is the perfect spot for a ‘get-away-from-it-all’ stay of two nights or more. Only a one hour drive from Christchurch, or fifteen minutes from the famous village of Akaroa, this property is ideally situated for exploring the stunning hills and beaches of the Banks Peninsula. In the evening, savour a glass of two of our famous French Peak wines in front of the log burning stove.
