From the moment you enter the driveway you know there is something a little special about this B&B. A little bit of France in the New Zealand countryside. The owners do everything to make you feel comfortable. Breakfast is an occasion. Welcome drinks and nibbles by the pool. Tea, coffee and biscuits laid out for that easy snack. The accommodation...

We stayed with another couple at French Fields for three nights. It was wonderful! Ruth and Barry were the best hosts. They helped us with plans, had us over for a glass of wine one evening and Barry personally drove us to restaurants on two nights so that we did not have to drive and could enjoy wines with dinner....

We had a wonderful stay here in December. The place was beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. Barry and Ruth made our stay very special, making sure all our needs were met. We would highly recommend this place to others for a romantic getaway.

A beautiful setting, lovely hosts, super-comfortable and French style build and décor. Set in fields of lavender and ideally close for access to all the top name wineries. A really brilliant B&B. Couldn't recommend it more strongly.

In fields and fields of lush lavender is this perfect B and B that could have been plucked out of France and resettled in Blenheim. Ruth and Peter were the perfect hosts who could not do enough to insure our comfort to the point that we insisted that they join us for dinner. Breakfasts were delicious and the accommodations are...

Recently spent two nights in the beautiful Petite Mason Suite at French Fields which is one of the loveliest B&B's we have ever visited. No detail is missed in this lovely place from the magnificent decorating to a welcoming glass of wine with appetizers to so many more thoughtful little things. Breakfasts were beyond amazing. We were even able to...

Just the most idyllic place to stay when visiting the South Island of New Zealand. Wonderful hosts, perfect setting, stunning accommodation. In the centre of the wine growing region, it is so easy to make trips out to fully explore the area. We stayed for two nights (big mistake - should have been much longer!) in the Petite Maison which...

Just returned from 5 nights at French Fields and we could not have hoped for better. This place is just gorgeous inside and out! Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts Ruth and Barry and it's evident that they love what they do. Ruth was very happy to suggest restaurants and the better vineyards to visit and they all...

We had a wonderful stay at French Fields while on our honeymoon. The lavender fields are to die for and the room we stayed in was gorgeous. There was a lot of privacy at French Fields, with a host who was warm and welcoming. Ruth's breakfasts were wonderful, and we love her lavender products which we are enjoying at home....
