A French-style villa in Tasmania

Catriona loves all things French, and when she visited Villa Howden she felt she had travelled much further than to Tasmania's Huon Valley.
Villa Howden is on the shores of North West Bay just 15 minutes from Hobart. Built in the 1970s, the property has been a private home, health centre, restaurant and is now a small, boutique hotel. Owner Val Harding has included French influences in furniture, furnishings and light fittings and has created a peaceful place for guests.
