Superb! Looks very idyllic. I'd like to be a bit more eloquent in my praise other than saying 'holy f*** thats amazing'.

The juxtaposition is confusing me a little. French looking farm house amongst South Pacific forest.

TIRAU | PART 27

*
Tirau is a small town in the Waikato region of the North Island of New Zealand, 50 kilometres southeast of Hamilton. The town has a population of 732 (2006 census).
*
Tirau is primarily a farming town but in recent years has begun to exploit the income that comes from being on a major road. Tirau is Maori for "place of many cabbage trees."
*
In the 19th century, Tirau, then Oxford, was originally planned as a large-scale city for the Waikato, however plans were changed after the entrepreneurial Rose family bought up large volumes of land in the region, with the intention of making large returns when it came of high demand.
*
Oxford later became a rural service town, and changed its name to Tirau in 1896. By the late 1980s Tirau was fast becoming a ghost town.
*
In 1991, local business man Henry Clothier sought to advantage from the relatively cheap real estate and high traffic volume in the town by opening an Antique shop in the former Rose Bros. grocery store building. Many other businesses followed suit off the back of his success throughout the 1990s until today.
*
Tirau has built a reputation as a shopping destination for antiques, collectibles and other niche items.
*
The town is now a well known tourist stop-off, and is characterised by many local art works in the town forged out of discarded corrugated iron.

Awesome pics! I have a question: do those houses look actual houses inside? How do the interiors appear?

Thanks ... this is the only Hobbit Hole that has an interior (Frodo and Bilbo Baggin's House) but you are not allowed to go inside ...

This hobbit Hole has no interior (only a hole in the ground) but you are able to enter it for photo opportunities ...
