Just an hour north of Auckland, lies a region of quiet beauty, blessed with the good things in life.

Great wine, superb local cuisine and world class accommodation. Situated along meandering river valleys and a stunning coastline with its pristine beaches and the crystal clear reef at Goat Island. Your quest might be a fine bottle of Merlot, an original piece of art, or romantic candlelit dinner.

At the end of the day it might be retiring to your tranquil country accommodation for a restful night’s sleep.
It is only a short drive – but a world away !

Claudia Schenz offers beauty treatments and accommodation for up to four people in two rooms in her purpose-built beauty farm, high on a ridge overlooking vines. German-style breakfasts, and a large swimming pool.
