LaoJia, a Qing Dynasty House

  • Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8
    LaoJia 老家 is a fully revived and restored countryside home, nestled amongst Yangshuo County's Li River Valley landscape. This residence and its setting are one-of-a-kind, and the experience of living in a remote (accessible only by bamboo boat) Chinese village will be equally memorable. Here are a few details that we believe will make your stay something special.

    Local Life.
    Find yourself wandering the Qing Dynasty hallways, living amongst the locals in a historic fishing and farming village. Eat healthy fruits and vegetables from family gardens, fresh-caught fish from the river, and drink water straight from the mountain aquifer. Get lost in the orange groves, collect firewood with local grandmothers, and scale the hills to herd goats with shepherds.

    Historic Craftsmanship.

Living in Laojia for two days was magical. The two owners, Maarten and Eric, refurbished the house but it completely retains its previous style and Qing dynasty character. Liangshi is a small village on the river. It's currently going through big changes, like the rest of China, but they are so lucky to have historical China preserved within its walls.... more

LaoJia is a fabulous getaway from the hussle and bussle of travel in China. A great place to unwind... My family of 5 (mum, sisters and 11 year old daughter) stayed with Eric and Maarten for 3 days during the public holiday period. We had been travelling in China for 2 weeks prior. A lovely (and safe) lady driver transported... more
