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!
French Bay House dates back to 1874. It's built in the Carpenter Gothic style popular at the time, where builders working in wood recreated Gothic architectural features more usually found carved on stone cathedrals in Europe. French Bay House is one of the best examples in the area with lovingly carved fretwork adorning its roof and windows.
