Glenfern Villas Review

A short drive north of Franz Josef village these very smart self-contained villas are in a quiet rural environment away from the tourist bustle and helicopters. This is quality Qualmark four-star-plus accommodation, with Enviro Silver status. There are eight villas each with two bedrooms and ten villas with one bedroom Each villa has a private park space. Kids can run off some energy in the playground or neighboring farmlet, with its alpaca, goats, and farm dog. They also have mountain bikes for hire.
