About Us

Villa Rouge is a 1900s villa that has been lovingly restored by its present owners, Diana and Noel Bonisch. The restoration has been carried out in keeping with its originality, at the same time upgrading the villa to modern functional and practical standards.
The villa is fully insulated and relined, and electrical wiring has been completely renewed.

​We are both fourth generation Southlanders, with an in-depth knowledge of local attractions and places to go.

Diana has a passion for cooking, arthouse movies, books, crochet & knitting, swimming & walking.

We have three adult children ... two in NZ and one in Amsterdam.

Noel's interests include wine tasting & collecting, biking, reading, and gardening ... grows all his own vegetables, and produces the most divine homemade bread (served with your cooked breakfast of course).
