"The Italian Villa" Stylish & peaceful, 5 bedrooms, sleeps 10

Family-friendly holiday home in Fairhall
Welcome to The Italian Villa. Sitting on a 4 ha vineyard nestled up against the Wither Hills with lovely views across the vines of the Wairau Valley to the Richmond Ranges, The Italian Villa accommodates up to 10, and it is the perfect stylish and peaceful retreat for family, friends or groups wanting a memorable stay in Marlborough.

"What a place. Far from the crowds in total comfort in a beautiful villa.
Reminiscent of Italian countryside, set in a vineyard" Martin

The Italian Villa, with spacious indoor living alongside outdoor terraces and the garden deck offers you a memorable Marlborough holiday. The Italian Villa has been a very successful B&B for over 4 years and now is available for luxury holidays.

"Your perfect Marlborough day starts with a beautiful morning on the terrace by the Courtyard Rose Garden over coffee and breakfast. Then after your day out and about, sit back and unwind on the deck with your favourite Marlborough wines and some tapas, grill steaks on your Webber and dine alfresco under the rambling roses and old beams, then relax and soak in the views to the sounds of the birds and cicadas while watching the sun go down".

The stylish living area flows from the fully equipped kitchen and dining room with the large antique table under the stunning chandelier from Belgium. Both of these rooms open out onto terraces. The Villa features chandeliers collected from trips abroad, stunning European style lights, old beams and timber ceilings, French Cathedral candelabras, and all this with tasteful antiques and furniture gives The Italian Villa immense character and a feeling of peace.

5 bedrooms - one king, 3 queens and one with twin singles - all with pillow top mattresses and lovely cotton linen, will ensure you awake refreshed and ready for another day. The Villa has 3 bathrooms for your convenience.

The deck sits in the garden, shaded from the hot summer sun by mature trees, and it links the Villa and gardens to the vineyard. It is the perfect place to unwind while enjoying the expansive views across the famed Wairau Valley to the Richmond Ranges.

Cool down in the solar heated swimming pool. Relax in the sun or the shade - the choice is all yours. (The pool may at times be used by guests staying in Il Piccolo, The Little House, which is nearby to The Italian Villa).

Additional accommodation staying in Il Piccolo, which is also listed with Bookabach, for 4 is available on request. Please contact me for more information.

Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers private pools and fireplaces. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, kitchenware and utensils, dishwashers and coffee/tea makers. Bathrooms include a shower and hairdryers.

Perfect place for family special occasion
We loved our weekend at Alison’s beautiful home! The big entertainers kitchen, dining table and living space with an open fire was just what we needed for our extended family gathering. It’s a quiet lovely spot, looking out over the gardens and vines The beds are comfy and bathrooms generous. We enjoyed having the horses nearby and cat making friends. Alison is very friendly and accommodating and we definitely recommend staying at her home!

5/5 Excellent

A Wonderful Way To See In 2021
We were 5 couples looking for a great house that could accommodate all of us amongst the vines. We were very lucky to stumble across Alison and her home. Beautifully appointed amongst the vines, with large bedrooms for all plus massive entertaining areas, the house is fantastic. The pool was heated and ideal. However, best of all was the owner Alison. Always quick to respond to our questions, she was a delight to deal with. She was able to answer any questions, and had plenty of advice about the Marlbourgh district. A great way to kick off 2021.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely property
Excellent location for our family gathering- everything we could possibly need was there.
