The Lodge at The French Village

The Lodge is an ideal retreat for families or groups seeking accommodation in a spacious environment, surrounded by nature and with adventure on the doorstep, yet close to all the attractions of the beautiful Wairarapa region of New Zealand.

You will enjoy a tranquil respite in native forest/bush situated 30 minutes from Greytown, Martinborough, Carterton or Masterton in the foothills of the Tararua Ranges. The Lodge will sleep up to 16 people in bunk-style accommodation.

There are no visible neighbour’s, no cell phone connection, no wifi and no power lines. You will be totally off the grid and free from the demands of endless connectivity. You won't miss your ring tone though as you enjoy the sounds of the river tumbling past and the bell birds trilling.

Unfortunately however, there was a flash flood through our home in February 2018 and we need to temporarily move into the lodge. The positive aspect is we will do some upgrading to the lodge, but the lodge will not be available for rent until at least 2018.

The flood was a 1 in 200 year event.
