A haven for the discerning traveller
Experience Marlborough boutique accomodation at one of New Zealand's finest Country Retreats.
Marlborough boutique accomodationIn the heart of Marlborough's wine growing area lies Old Saint Mary's Convent -- a haven for the discerning traveller, where luxury boutique accommodation and an intimate retreat may be found.
Old Saint Mary's Convent is situated on an estate of 60 acres of vineyard and parkland and is surrounded on all sides by the vineyards and olive groves Marlborough is famous for.
Spring Creek, with its abundant bird life and trout, meanders lazily through the property. It is here, beneath Marlborough's azure sky, that one may spend a pleasant afternoon sipping local vintages and sampling the provincial gourmet fare.
Each of the five rooms has spectacular views of the surrounding hills, vineyards and/or gardens. All have their own ensuite with bath and separate shower. The rooms are very spacious and airy with easy access to the balcony.
Essential modern conveniences, like fire protection sprinklers and a sophisticated heating and air conditioning system, are cleverly hidden behind the old ceilings, rimu panelling and timbered floors.
Continental or cooked breakfast is served in the cosy dining room. The library, with its ornate Kauri fireplace and separate billiards room, is for the exclusive use of guests.
Relax or make use of the bicycles, outdoor swimming pool, petanque court or croquet area.
Splendid grass tennis courts neighbouring the Convent can usually be used by guests.
LocationJust a 10 minute drive from Blenheim or 20-25 minutes from Picton on Rapaura Road on New Zealand’s South Island.
