My husband and I spent 2 nights at Bernadette’s Retreat. The guest bedroom and en suite were superb with great attention to detail in design and decor, fixtures and fittings. Each evening our hostess, Bernadette, presented us with a delicious meal and lively conversation. The B&B is only a few kms from Little River, and approx 20 mins drive to the beautiful French township of Akaroa, full of cafes, restaurants and galleries. We can definitely recommend staying at Bernadette’s Retreat and will do so again when we next spend time in this picturesque area.
