On my first trip to Southern India, I wanted to stay a few nights at this guesthouse which I had heard was a relaxing and serene place. I was definitely not disappointed. In the mornings, I would sit on the porch with my book, but always ended up just watching the beautiful scenery instead of reading. I also biked to the friendly nearby village of Athoor, walked around the reservoir and visited a village school, brick factory and sari weaver with owner Dorinda.
Owners and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I could not have felt more welcome. I would love to stay here again when I'm in Tamil Nadu. Thank you!
