We are a family of 4, stayed 5 nights at Tonnam Homestay and loved every minute of it !!! The franco-Thaï ownners (Yul & Cécile) were very welcoming and made us feel at home right away.
The breakfast was amazing, so were the meals (a bit pricey compared to local prices but well worth it !). Pom, the cook, is lovely, enthusiastic, always ready to give cooking lessons and share her recipes.
This lovely collection of teak cottages is located just outside Chiang Mai and overlooks the river. It is very relaxing to come back to after a day of trekking. Nice pool. Quick drive to the centre. Clean and spacious rooms with airco.
Yul & Cécile did everything to satisfy our requests and recommended several outings which were great: Doi Suthep (the mountain temple), a day with elephants (elephants are well treated and cared for), one-day trekking in the jungle (through paddy fields and Karen villages - wonderful but tiring - 7-hour walk).
We would definitely recommend Tonnam Homestay if you are looking for a quality family hotel with a genuine local atmosphere.
