We stopped one night at St Arnaud, and had one of our best times in New Zealand. Russel & Margery are such wonderful hosts! We spend a very nice evening with them, starting by a chat around a glass of wine. We had a great dinner together, and very pleasant conversations and cultural exchanges
The room was very cosy and nice. We love wood, so a wooden house and bathroom was great! The garden is so beautiful! We love nature, so we could exchange with Margery about how plants support differents environments.
Next morning, we had a great and delicious breakfast.
We would really have liked to stay here longer. We will certainly stay here again if we are around.
