About
Description
Chintheche Inn is set in extensive, lush gardens dotted with splendid, shady trees and overlooking Lake Malawi which, oceanlike, stretches to the horizon. The distant Viphya Mountains form a dramatic backdrop. More There is a central dining area and bar, and meals often take place (weather permitting) under the stars or in a secluded corner of the garden, near the large swimming pool. Chintheche Inn boasts some of the finest beaches on the lakeside as well as excellent freshwater activities such as boating and snorkelling. Meeting and interacting with the local people, biking through villages and learning about the Chintheche Tree Planting initiative from our staff are just a little of what makes the friendly, laid-back Inn such a unique place to visit. Birdlife is abundant, while the reclusive mutable sun squirrel may be sighted in the gardens. Less
