  • French Twist is in a gorgeous location overlooking the sounds

    French Twist is in a gorgeous location overlooking the sounds. It was about 15mins out of town and located up a steep driveway resulting in us not wanting to come home too late in the dark. We had a very comfy bed and fantastic views.

    French Twist is in a fabulous location, perfect for exploring Picton and the coast although we hardly wanted to leave, it was so comfortable! It really is a wonderful place to stay, we'd love to come back.

  • An absolutely beautiful place to stay

    An absolutely beautiful place to stay. Not too far from town but far enough that you feel like your miles away. Very quiet with the most amazing views.

    Having spent some time in rural France I would never have believed the same feeling could be captured in New Zealand... but it can. Jenny's house has been tastefully built and decorated to give it a genuine French country feel.
