Need a break well we have discovered the best place in the beautiful Wairarapa in New Zealand's North Island just a hop over the Rimutukas mountains of Wellington.
Olivio - nor is a slice of Tuscany and one of the most relaxing places we have stayed.
The owners and creators Vern and Sheryl Anton have renovated Olivio - nor with passion and such style that you will feel like you have walked into a Vogue magazine.
Three bedrooms with beds fit for a queen.... and speaking from personal experiance i was a queen for the week i stayed. So much so i have returned another 2 times.
Set on 10 acres of green New Zealand farmland with an abundance of olive trees. The odd fluffy white sheep and one ex race horse.
When you walk through the barn doors and into a state of the art kitchen with everything you could possibly want to cook a gourmet meal.
Wine wont be a problem with some of the worlds finest wineries up the road you will be spoilt for choice.
Do you need to travel in summer ? ahhh no because the open fire place will keep you snug and warm in the cooler weather.
Don't just take my word for it have a look at Olivio - nor website and loose yourself in Tuscany right on our doorstep.
