Best weekend escape?

If you live in one of NZ's big cities you will have your personal favourite weekend escape. In Auckland it might be Waiheke, in Christchurch perhaps Akaroa. For those of us in Wellington you can't beat the charm, tranquility, ambience and sheer quality of Martinborough. Just an hour and a bit from the heart of the City, Martinborough offers a world as detached from everyday reality as the trip through the wardrobe into Narnia!

What's your personal favourite weekend escape?

The Kapiti Coast - not far from Wellington and always a few degrees warmer.
