Retiro Park Lodge was the first stop on the South Island during our trip around New Zealand. It is a really lovely house, set in beautiful gardens. Unfortunately, Robbert, one of the owners, had been called away before our arrival, so we did not get to meet him during our stay. However, Victor was a great host. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he made some great suggestions of where to visit in and around Nelson. Victor also cooked a lovely meal for us on our first evening and it was great to sit and chat to him over a few glasses of wine. Would highly recommend Retiro Park Lodge if you are visiting Nelson. Flavia is also very beautiful!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Retiro Park Lodge offers friendly, personalyzed, memorable accommodation in an oasis of quiet country luxury: Surrounded by an extensive garden, in a 90-acre park-like property, nestled amongst hills and sitting along the river in beautiful Teal Valley, but minutes away from Nelson City’s bustle. The property rears Llamas and Alpacas that roam freely in the paddocks surrounding the lodge and also has its own producing vineyard, olive and almond groves. Our Bed and Breakfast is a destination on its own and the perfect base to explore the region’s most sought after attractions: it is within easy reach for day excursions from “The Abel Tasman”, “Kahurangi” and “Nelson Lakes” National Parks and “The Marlborough Sounds” and its wine growing region. ... more less
