We have just returned from spending two marvellous weeks at “Lakeside Guesthouse Athoor south India” and we can safely say it was a most delightful and informative holiday. “Lakeside” (not to be confused with others with similar addresses) itself is situated approximately one hundred meters from the shore of Lake Kamaraj giving an idyllic setting while enjoying the natural beauty within it’s seven acres of private land flanked by mountains. There is always something to see in its colourful gardens with an abundance of birdlife, wildlife, to local fishermen in their coracles spreading their nets as they have been doing over the centuries. One can always relax after a days sightseeing, thoughtfully arranged by Dorinda and Peter, in the lovely swimming pool or having a refreshing drink on the terrace.
One of the highlights of the day is indulging in before dinner refreshments on the rooftop watching the delightful sunset over the lake as it slowly goes behind the mountain giving peace and tranquillity to the evening, and the wonderful meal presented to us.
The owners Peter and Dorinda are a wonderful couple who with their staff make sure you are well looked after and tend to your every need.
We intend to return hopefully in the near future and encourage anyone who is thinking in going to south India to stay at “Lakeside.”
Thank you so much Dorinda and Peter for making our stay so enjoyable and comfortable.
