Kerala farm tours, plantation village tours and even tours of the fabulous Lakshadweep Islands that we featured recently are all easily bookable when you choose Modern homestay close to city’s attractions, a new gold star homestay in Fort Cochin, Kerala.
This 150 year-old house is full of old world charm as well as high ceilings, king size rooms, wooden floors, tasteful décor and peaceful surroundings. Its roomy bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and helpful staff are available to ensure a comfortable stay.
But it’s the sheer amount of things to do from this attractive Cochin base that stick out.
Genial host Mr Llewellyn enjoys giving tourist information to its guests and will happily guide them round the historical city. Guests are able to go fishing for their own dinner and bring their catch back to the house for cooking. There’s a chance to visit the ancestral village home of the Llewellyns to see rubber, cocoa, vanilla, pineapple and nutmeg cultivation. Plus there’s the host’s farm house 40 kms away where you can see paddy fields and rubber latex processing.
This is all on top of the wonderful sights that Cochin and Kerala offer anyway.
