The Peppertree, Blenheim, New Zealand
The Peppertree, whose name is derived from the grove of pepper trees which line the drive, is a beautiful Edwardian villa, built in 1901, and its character and feel flow through the five guest suites. Each suite is individual, featuring a fireplace, veranda or balcony as well as homely touches such as fresh fruit and home-baked cookies. The house is surrounded by ten acres of lush farmland incorporating cottage gardens, an olive grove, a swimming pool and a boutique vineyard producing the hosts' own chardonnay. Breakfast is a sumptuous affair, taken in the lovely dining room. The emphasis of The Pepper Tree is on fresh air, relaxation and, of course, fantastic wines.
