I have been to Xi Quan's house 2 times. Only compliments to make !!!! Easy trekking through beautiful scenery, real traditional house in a tiny hamlet of 5 houses "far from the madding crowd" (no ther tourists around once you have passed the Sa Seng little bridge), Xi Quan is an absolute darling (and a good cook) and so is her French husband Olivier. Divine Dao herbal bath in the family's dao house next door. A "must stay" for those who are looking for genuine traditional.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located 15km away from Sapa Town, Chez Xiquan is a renovated traditionnal Red Dao house. It offers 2 rooms : a bigger one with 1 bed (2 persons) and a dormitory style one with 2 beds (up to 4 persons.)Also, there are in-house toilets and especially, a very nice view from the terrace (when it's not foggy) overs Ta Phin valley and mountains. Displayed prices decrease with longer stays. Food isn't uncluded and must be reserved in advance (we do cook a lot of different and delicious meals either local, vietnamese or european style.) Several services are offered like traditionnal Red Dao herbal bath : up to 30 plants are harvested then, boiled in a huge wok to create a very special medicinal experience. We also provide books for you to enjoy and we can take you around (even from Sapa if you want.)We would like to inform you that we have an organic garden behind the house where we grow chemical-free vegetables and fruits for your meals. ... more less
