French Fields was the best part of our 2 week stay in NZ. We spent 1 night in the Petite Maison room and it was perfect. Even though we came at the time of year when the lavender was not at its peak it was utterly beautiful sitting on the private balcony with a cup of tea looking over the lavender and olive field and the surrounding vineyards, birds chirping all around. Perfect tranquility and relaxation. The owners who built the farm from scratch a few years ago were attentive and charming. We enjoyed the large delicious breakfast which catered to out vegetarian diet. The property is perfectly placed for winery tours and is a short drive from Blenheim. There is a pool and bikes available for guest use. Our only regret was not booking a longer stay!
