Perfect for the independent traveller, the Vintners Retreat provides exclusive luxury accommodation in the heart of Marlborough, New Zealand’s largest wine region. True vineyard accommodation, Vintners Retreat offers unique and stylish self-contained Villas set at the top of Rapaura Road, locally known as Marlborough’s ‘Golden Mile’ of vineyards.
A stay here will place you right amongst Marlborough’s famous vineyards and wineries, adjacent to the Richmond Ranges and the braided Wairau River. The neighbours include Giesen Wines, Wairau River, Huia and Nautilus Estate; perfect for an afternoon of easy wine tasting. Base yourself at the Retreat, and you are a quick drive to the town of Blenheim, 20 minutes’ drive from Havelock or Picton, the beautiful Marlborough Sounds and the Awatere Valley.
With 14 properties to choose from, the beautiful Villas are private and peaceful. Each Villa is beautifully appointed, fully equipped to a high standard, self-contained and serviced daily. Private patio dining, BBQs, complimentary wireless and luxury toiletries all supplied as standard. With four Villa styles to choose from there is something for everyone, from couples wanting a romantic getaway, to families wanting the space to unwind and relax!
Within the four-acre grounds there is a 12-metre solar-heated swimming pool, tennis court, boules strip and croquet sets for guests’ use. The Wairau River stop bank provides an excellent opportunity for cycling, walking and running, and we have bikes available to hire. Nearby Havelock and the Marlborough Sounds offer sailing and power boating, fishing and kayaking. Contact Vintners Retreat for more ideas about activities.
