這簡直是人間仙境!完全不用去住在nuwara eliya的茶山,因為太商業化,並且沒有更多的事情可做。然而這裏,茶山上一顆秘密寶石!整個房子面對煙霧繚繞的對面山頂,你可以在屋檐下喝一杯茶,一边看山景,一边看来造访的鸟儿和松鼠。那个泳池超赞!更可爱的是主人家,Arjuna是这里世袭的庄园主,他会带你去看他和太太一起种植的香料、水果、蔬菜,你还可以从泳池后面的小路往下走,去看茶山和正在作业的采茶工人,她们都很友好!Arjuna美丽的太太会做很美味的当地美食,而且会给你展示她亲手做出来的各种香料成品哦!原来云呢拿这种香料,就需要她每天拿出来晒天黑收回去,这样持续半年才有的用呢!我们是自己租车自己开,所以不介意这间房子的位置,不过即使没有开车,也可以打电话叫一个tuk tuk上来接的。虽然没有在kandy城里面,但是距离也不远,大概半个多小时车程而已,到植物园大概二十分钟。btw,植物园超赞!
