Travelers usually catch a first glimpse of the archipelago from above. It is so remote that reaching it by boat would make for quite a long trip – to such an extent some say that is the closest thing to the edge of the world. From the skies, fascinating landscapes reveal themselves. Ancient snowy mountaintops, all sorts of forests and impressive volcanoes; immense, wild expanses which host a fauna to be found nowhere else, protected by unfathomable distances of deep sea.Learn more
Bewitched by the beauty of the scene, the observer rarely notices the plane slowing down as it heads for one of the two main islands of this peculiar country: New Zealand.
If it were to land on South Island, villa Arritea would be a helicopter’s ride away. Flying over the Pacific shore and its vertiginous coastal cliffs, the aircraft would head for a valley nestled in what is known as Pigeon Bay. Isolated between the hills, the domain stands facing the tranquil, shimmering waters. All around, nature is sovereign and silence absolute; combined, the two create a surreal atmosphere, which permeates this private domain, its lawns and its swimming pool, flowing over its sunbathed patio and exterior Jacuzzi.
With its cedar exterior, this 448m2 abode fades harmoniously in its environment. Standing between the hills and the bay, the house is flanked by large bay windows with views on both. The interior is luminous and appeasing; wood is omnipresent. In the spacious living space, it covers the floor, the double ceiling and the walls. The stone column of a superb fireplace rises the centre of the room, discretely separating the living room from the dining room
The interior is thought out to be a continuation of the outdoors, rather than a confined space; the bedrooms are no exception to this. Three of the four suites enjoy their own spectacular views of the seaside, and each has its own bathroom.
A chef is at the disposition of the guests, and will be delighted to offer them new flavours and perfumes and make their experience of New Zealand truly unique.
