About the neighbourhood
Mapua seaside village is away from Nelson city (yay!) yet is an easy 25 min drive (or cycle there on the Great Taste Trail). Mapua is the art, beach, music, cafe and wine centre of the region and is nestled in stunning, quiet countryside. We have cycle tour routes to explore the nearby artisans, wineries, beaches and countryside.
