About your host, Alastair

Alastair's Photo

We are Alastair Wilkinson and Fiona del Bosco. We fell in love with this property at first sight and we think you’ll see why. The old farm buildings, rolling hills, olive groves, and vineyards reminded us of holidays in the Mediterranean and revived childhood memories of growing up in the New Zealand countryside. We are stewards of this beautiful piece of land that we care for deeply and love to share with our guests. This region is blessed with a sunny climate, perfect for growing a wide range of fruits and vegetables. We have planted organic gardens and orchards based on permaculture farming principles which means we grow a wide array of our own food including things like heritage apples, pears, apricots, peaches, plums, pomegranates, persimmons, medlars, quinces, figs, grapes, lemons, grapefruit, tea, berries, chestnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, macadamias, pinenuts, tomatoes, beans, artichokes, lettuce, potatoes, zucchinis, herbs, corn, garlic, fennel, onions, kale, cabbages, celeriac, parsnips, silverbeet…the list feels endless even to us! Our Olive harvest is one very special crop at the property. We grow, handpick and cold-press our own very beautiful extra virgin olive oil that gets used in our cooking all year long. Our olive oil is available for guests to enjoy - we sell bottles at our shop at the villa - it’s a true taste of what our land yields. We have a beautiful area of New Zealand native forest near the main Villa which has survived tree felling, farming, and orcharding over the past 150 years. We have worked hard to extend this natural habitat and aim to replant much of the farm with native trees. We have a QEII covenant on our bush which means it can never be felled and we recently received a government grant to help with our reforestation programme. Our guests are welcome to explore our little haven.
