French Bay House is a beautiful historic villa in the heart of Akaroa. It is the most photographed house in the village due to the stunning gardens and its iconic architectural style. The house is situated close to Beach Road where you will find a number of shops and restaurants along the water front and is within easy walking distance to the wharf where you can catch a number of different boats to see the dolphins and penguins which live in the harbour. The perfect spot for a relaxing stay!
It is a short walk to the beach and the main harbour front road where you will find plentiful shops and cafes to enjoy. This is also where you can book trips to see the dolphins and penguins in the harbour or take a class at the Akaroa Cooking School. The town library is five minutes walk away and is next to the cinema which shows all the new movies. Fancy fish and chips? The best fish and chip shop is just across the road!
