Akaroa is a village in the Canterbury region of the South Island of New Zealand.

Akaroa has a distinct French character, in the early 1800's it was the French who first settled this area. It was abandoned when the British arrived to expel the original European visitors, over concerns the French wanted to annex New Zealand for themselves.

The Giants House is a historic Akaroa house with original artworks, terraced gardens with sculptures & mosaics and a contemporary art gallery.
