Across the other side of the harbour from Akaroa in historic French Farm lies another one of the peninsula's unique places.
Te Wepu was founded in 1843 and has been farmed ever since by a succession of New Zealanders with varied backgrounds. Today, Te Wepu is a working cattle farm, with plans in place for an avocado orchard! However what makes Te Wepu even more special, is some unique private cabins fitted with modern luxuries including wifi and personal hot tub!
At Te Wepu, hosts Richie and Kate have created an experience that’s sure to hit the spot with trail runners; a secluded spot, a little bit of adventure and a decent dose of luxury. As a base to explore the peninsula from, you'd be hard pressed to find better - if you can pull yourself away from that hot tub!
Guests are welcome to hike to the very top of the farm, on a well-marked track (guess what that means trail runners!), and enjoy the panoramic views of Akaroa Harbour, Onawe Peninsula and French Farm Valley or simply relax in your hot tub letting the warm water ease the aches of adventuring while also soaking in the view. It doesn't get much better than this!
Oh and we also have some of their Te Wepu source Kanuka honey to give away! Does the specialness ever end?!! :-)
