Overview:
Opou Country House is a magnificent 120-year-old mansion located near Gisborne, in the North Island of New Zealand. Surrounded by 12 hectares of manicured garden, with fine fishing, horse-riding and golf close by, this five bedroom colonial-style mansion offers luxury accommodation in stylish and comfortable surroundings.

The five, spacious bedrooms are light and airy, and open on to deep verandahs where guests can breakfast in private enjoying the views over the gardens. In spring, spectacular flowering cherry trees transform the gardens into a vision of pink.

Opou is an excellent base for activities suited to the active explorer, as white sandy beaches, award-winning vineyards, ancient forests and Maori cultural sites are just a stone's throw away, however for those in search of quieter pleasures, Opou offers an excellent environment in which to relax and forget the cares of the world, perhaps enjoying a book under the shade of the old elm on the lawn. Dining is another pleasure, with Robyn a master of both Asian and European cooking. She has taught in New Zealand and overseas, and hosts cooking lessons in the well-equipped, country kitchen. She places an emphasis on fresh seasonal ingredients, many of which are produced from Opou's gardens.
