Time to go travelling again
House in Pegasus, 15-20 mins north of Christchurch, New Zealand
My home was built in around 10 years ago in Pegasus, which is a very new township, developed around a large lake.
It is 2 storey, with the main bedroom upstairs, leading out to a very sunny balcony, with views of the town and in the distance you can see the mountains.
An international Golf Course (Pegasus) is walking distance from my front door.
One of the 2 bedrooms downstairs is currently my work office, the other has a double bed.
Situated north of Christchurch city, Pegasus sits in the middle of the east coast of the South Island, where my home is close to both the city centre, many beaches as well as the gorgeous countryside. About an hour west to a good ski slope, an hour north to Hanmer (mineral natural hot pools - see photo).
Our summer is December to late March.
5 hours south to stunning Queenstown - the surrounding area is certainly worth a trip. (This is now listed in the Lonely Planet, as a must do !)
The Marlborough Sounds, with the most beautiful inlets, a boaties dream, although 4 hours drive north, is worth the drive and at least one nights stay.
Fancy swimming with dolphins in Akaroa Harbour ?? (1 hour away) or Whale watching off Kaikoura Coast (2 hours away) - a once in a lifetime opportunity.
There are many cycle trails around this area.

About Our Family
I am a semi-retired Business Advisor in the Automotive Industry in NZ. Once Covid is under control and behind us, it will be time to travel once again.
In 2011, I exchanged in Montesque Volvestre (near Toulouse), in 2013 I exchanged with Nimes and in 2015 I exchanged with Aix en Provence and then in 2018 Taggia in Italy. I prefer to holiday in an interesting old village or a historical city.
I will also be happy to also consider an exchange in the UK or Italy.
I may be travelling with 1 or possibly 2 girl friends or family member, we will take very good care of any home and any car that is exchanged. My preferred time is May/June /July/or August 2023. As those dates will be winter in NZ, I am happy to consider non simultaneous.
