If you want to stay in a quiet, beautiful and peaceful place in North Thaïland, choose this one. Far away from the cities, Thaton is the best spot to explore the Gold Triangle and get to know about people, tribes and refugees.
Paulo, the Frenchman who designed, built and now owns Old Tree's house (whose name was inspired by ... the huge tree at the top of the hill on which this guesthouse is situated), is such a good host and he has thought the place over, in order to allow you to chill and relax in a family atmosphere (every room has its own DVD player and mini bar is free !!!).
Of course, if you speak French, you will get much much more from Paulo, if you want to know about everyday life in Thaïland, but do not worry : he speaks english very well, as he has been traveling for quite some time around the world. No need to say his wife and the rest of his family are all smiling, helpful and... perfect cooks !!!!!!
From old tree's house, Paulo organizes tours where you're unlikely to see any other tourist. Among them, we enjoyed so much our journey with Renato, a real phenomena ... !
We highly recommand this place : go and see for yourself !
