Thank you to everyone who visited our gardens and attended our events for the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival.

38. La Vie en Rose

51 Bridge St, Eltham, 4322

This French-inspired courtyard garden in Eltham has a unique flair and style that offers places to sit and indulge. Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic lunch or bottle of wine and enjoy the surrounds. The original bank building guards “La Vie en Rose” from the street. This refurbished bank manager’s residence has featured in NZ House & Garden and other magazines, and it is home to Mark and Barbara. The Bank features an eclectic design store and exhibition space for Mark’s photography and paintings and will be open during the garden festival.
