We had a 4 week trip travelling around New Zealand on our honeymoon and our night at Vilagrad was one of the most special. We booked the deluxe suite which was even better than in the photos. There was a bottle of Vilagrad bubbles chilled and waiting for us, plush robes and luxury toiletries. As we were out of season nearest restaurants were in Hamilton so we took cheese and charcuterie but a small breakfast basket was provided with toast, cereals, tea/coffee/juice. Spent the evening enjoying the secluded hot tub, watching the stars and enjoying the bubbly. Would love to go back in season as the owners showed us around the venue and winery. The restaurant was beautiful with the vines growing inside. Superb for a wedding venue too. We had to buy a few bottles of the vino as we left too, it was delicious.
This is an absolutely beautiful home with plenty of room for our party of eight. The kitchen is large and already stocked with coffee, tea, milk, and orange juice. There is beautiful outside seating area with a grill, a hot tub, and a great view of the countryside. The owners/staff did everything to assure we had everything we needed. This home was spotlessly clean and just a great place to relax. We were close to the local grocery and not far from the tourist sites we visited.
As a party of eight, we rented the entire Vilagrad house for the duration of our stay. The accommodation was perfect for our group, with ample space, a kitchen, outdoor grill, living room area, and even a hot tub, all overlooking part of the winery. When we arrived, we were able to join in a tasting at the winery with Christian, which was very enjoyable. The staff were very accommodating to all of our needs, and we highly recommend it! As travelers from the U.S., every member of the staff was willing to assist us in navigating around the area, for which we were very grateful!
