Plume Villas, stay or play - it's up to you
When you venture out of doors, here are some activities you might like to consider, here on the property or within the wider region.
Plume Cafe Matakana
Our very own bakery is on the cafe site, producing fresh bread and sweet treats for cafe patrons, or to take home with you.
The Matakana Region
The Matakana region offers a wide range of activities, catering to the needs of the most active or the least energetic. Swimmers, surfers, snorkelers, kayakers or paddle boarders will enjoy the region’s beaches and there are walking trails and cycle tracks for the two-wheelers. Organised activities such as boat trips, fishing, horse riding, helicopter tours and team building endeavours are also available. Or you can track back to your villa, curl up with a glass of wine and a book on the patio or in one of the many sunny spots within our grounds.
