Thank you again for your wonderful welcome during our stay at Mount Rosa Lodge.
You were right !!
On the way to Milford Sound it rained heavily all day long. With a lot of wind. It was very tiring. But on our arrival, as you told us, the mountain spewed torrents of water with an unimaginable power. The low clouds made all this incredibly mysterious!
The rain stopped at dinner time and we spent the night aboard the boat and were lucky to have the sun in the morning with the dolphins to accompany us. But compared to the previous day we had the odd feeling that someone had closed all the faucets ! What a grandiose spectacle it has been.
We arrived at Akaroa at Christine's place. They are really charming. Their house is beautiful with an amazing view of the bay. I told them that I was practicing regatta with my boat in France and we were invited to participate with them in a race in the bay organized by the Akaroa Yacht Club. Another beautiful day thanks to you!
We have already told you but we have been filled at home. We will be very happy to receive you in Brittany and take you sailing in the islands. I enclose some photos of Milford and Akaroa.
See you soon in Britanny, we really wish it.
Very kind regards.

In mid-November we stayed three nights with Ali and Nick. We experienced a stunning hospitality. Our room was extremely tastefully decorated and provided all the comforts. The breakfast was delicious, a shared cold platter dinner with the hosts rich and delicious. It provided ample opportunity for friendly exchanges with you about many destinations, New Zealand and world politics. Nestled in the vineyards of the Gibston Valley, the lodge offers sweeping views across the valley.

Thank you for taking such good car of us during our stay here, and for making your home such a special and peaceful retreat. Staying with you has been the perfect way to wind down on our honeymoon. We’ll especially miss Munro and Rusty - be sure to give them lots of scrubs from us.

Tony Julia and Janet, UK and Auckland. January 2019
As we drove up towards the lodge, it was nestled on the hill. We arrived and were greeted by Ali. The views around were stunning. Snow capped mountains, vines and a stunning view across the valley. We were immediately invited in for coffee and/ or tea.
Ali with an incredible knowledge of the area helped us plan our stay even before we arrived. Hints on where to go, what wineries to visit and where to eat. Breakfast was fantastic- you will not go hungry that's for sure.
Our room was beautiful, clean with great views of the cherry blossoms outside our glass windows and doors. The room is well appointed and classy. The bed comfortable and the bathroom well designed and beautiful. Tea and coffee facilities in the room. Heated floors a delight on the cold days.
We had a platter one night with the family and it was a great evening chatting, eating with a few glasses of Pinot. We only had 3 days there and wished we had more. My wife and I had a great time staying at the Lodge. A place we will be staying the next time we are in Queenstown.
10/10 To Ali and Nic.
Great place - Sensational hosts.
Oh and the 2 beautiful dogs Rusty and Monroe.

Ali, Nic, Munro and Rusty,
What an amazing ‘extended home’ you have! We have been so lucky to have found this spot of paradise and met such wonderful friends in the making. Thanks for the pinot, the bbq and “bonkers” evening with Terence and Susan (winemaker). Hope to repay your hospitality in our Italian castle one day soon!
