This place is an absolute gem - as soon as one turns down the tree-lined driveway it is as if one leaves NZ and arrives in France. We have stayed three times in the "gite" - the first for our wedding night and two anniversaries since. The setting is beautiful and the elegant accommodation is very well thought out, right...

Wonderful location Hosts Diane and Gerard- not too mention Wolf made us feel right at home with glasses of wine and chees before we went out to dinner and some more chat and win eon our return. Amazing breakfast too. A pity Gerard and Diane will embark on a new journey to pastures new in the coming months.

Being in this environs envelopes amazing memories of exquisite experiences and country living in opulence. French provence style home at the end of a long avenue of Amber trees invites you to be there. Designs by Harrowset Hall and the owners exquisite taste give all the senses such satisfaction. Breakfast is a feast for all the senses and means the... More

You have beautifully described the mood we've tried to create here in the New Zealand countryside. We have had many people think the house was built a hundred years ago (our best compliment). Many also used the words "understated elegance" to sum up their impressions. It was lovely to meet you and we wish you safe travels in the future!... More

We stayed overnight in the Regency Room at the Ambers in October 2014. Diane was away but Gerard and Wolf (Belgian Shepherd) were there to greet us on our arrival. The room was lovely and clean with some nice touches such as fresh flowers. Gerard was a very friendly host and happily supplied us with tea and biscuits on our... More

We had a really lovely time at the Ambers, even in the middle of winter it is beautiful. Diane, Gerard and Wolf were such lovely hosts, the location was so quiet and relaxing, the set-up was gorgeous, the food delicious and we were very reluctant to leave.
