As we pulled into the lovely grounds and Flavia, the 4-legged welcoming committee, came to greet us, we knew we had found "home" for the next 3 nights. We felt like invited guests at a perfect country retreat. Our hosts were gracious, welcoming, charming, interesting and engaging. The rooms were warm, comfortable and sophisticated, representing lives well-lived. All our meals were excellent, not to mention the lovely Retiro Park wines. This was a very special destination.
- 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
