Modern Luxury Country Guest House with Friendly Hosts:
This magnificent property was built in 2011 on a private 17 acre elevated estate overlooking beautiful Akaroa Harbour with its wonderful mountain backdrop.
The house and gardens enjoy 360 degree unobstructed, majestic panoramic views and the house is surrounded by lawns and fringed with natural bush and two streams.
Our own spring supplies us with limitless crystal clear water.
When building the new home we incorporated two luxury en-suite rooms both with their own external doors opening on to their own private patios allowing guests to sit, enjoy the views, listen to the numerous birds and savour a glass of wine after a day spent enjoying the many attractions of Akaroa and the lovely surrounding Banks Peninsula.
Friendly service is provided by the Owner/Hosts, Gerry and Anita Trott.
The Guest House caters mainly for couples who appreciate comfort, peace and tranquility above all else.
We do not cater for children or pets and we are a strictly Non-Smoking property. We have no self-catering facilities.
Chateau Mont Clair has no road noise and is well away from any town noise or noisy bars!
Yet, this haven of peace and tranquility is found only 2.kms from the centre of the picturesque, historic, seaside township of Akaroa. The small town boasts many activities along with quality and interesting cafes and restaurants and we can advise you on where to eat and even book a table for you.
The hosts enjoy their “Happy Hour” when guests are invited to share stories and enjoy complimentary pre-dinner drinks in the lounge between 6.00. - 7.00.pm before heading off down to Akaroa for dinner at their chosen restaurant.
Chateau Mont Clair provides a courtesy car to meet guests arriving in Akaroa by bus.
Most guests arrive by car and Akaroa is 80 kms from Christchurch or the Airport and the interesting scenic drive takes about 90 minutes.
We have ample safe car parking and also have our own helicopter landing pad for guests.
We look forwarded to welcoming you to our home.
