Relax upon arrival with tea, coffee and delicious home made baking upon arrival at The French Country House.
Dinner is a gourmet platter for two, served by our outdoor fireplace overlooking the rolling pastures of Pahoia out to the glittering Pacific ocean. Evenings at The French Country House are often spent in front of the indoor fire place snuggled up with a cup of tea. Or enjoying a bubble bath in your suites twin sized tub.
A gourmet breakfast and fresh coffee will greet you each morning. Perhaps you may then like to venture out onto the farm to explore and feed the animals fruit and vegetables provided by our gracious host Kay.
Enjoy a drive from The French Country House to Waihi beach through the countryside. We recommend the coastal walk from Waihi Beach to Orokawa Bay before lunch. The walk starts at the northern end of Waihi Beach. The track is popular and skirts the coastal headlands before descending into Orokawa Bay. This beach is not considered safe for swimming due to the steep grade of the seafloor, but it is popular for relaxing and reflection with its lovely overhanging Pohutukawa. Lunch and beverages will be served at The Flat White Cafe. An iconic part of the Waihi Beach community for over 10 years, this cafe overlooks the white fluffy surf and soft sand of Waihi beach. Spend the afternoon sight seeing and exploring the many boutique stores before making your way back the The French Country House.
Upon your return canapes and drinks will be served by the outdoor fire place before sitting down to a three course candle lit meal in our formal dining room.
