Rich Pickings

Quick weekend escape? Head over the Tasman to Matakana, Auckland's version of the Hamptons and a cornucopia of produce from both orchard & ocean.

Takatu Lodge & Vineyard sits comfortably astride the elegant & exclusive without any sense of pretence. With four great suites & spacious lounge, library, dining & outdoor terrace areas, Takatu has the serenity of a private country house.
