After a long drive we arrived at this haven of peace. Our room we full of charm. The history of the house splendid. Our host was very generous with his time. He guided us to two temple festival s and even a breakfast Sree Saraswathy Tea Stall. Quite an experience. The birdlife on the property and surrounding roads was full of interest.

I came to Kandath Tharavad by happy accident, having been on a five-star trip with a few home stays as well. I tried the rest and then I found the best! I didn't want to go back to Coimbatore which I hadn't enjoyed, so I asked my travel agents Audley for a different place on my planned route. By incredible luck Kandath Tharavad was free. It is a uniquely beautiful 300-year-old house, still in the possession of its original family owners who know the area in detail. Cool marble floors, antique carvings in situ over the doors and pillared passages, open courtyards. Set in a green oasis with a pavilion built over an expanse of water. The table d'hote dinner and breakfast were lovely (I got the impression most of the other visitors are usually French). Talking to the owner was absolutely fascinating, and he was kind enough to take me to a local festival before I left on my travels again. This too was one of the high spots of my trip. I must not forget the three dogs who made my visit such a joy. Incidentally my big 'de luxe suite' had perfect air-conditioning, though most of the public areas rely on the natural air cooling techniques of the original builders.

Deep in rural Kerala is this beautiful traditional ancestral home, now converted into a homestay. The owner gave us a warm welcome and showed us to our comfortable old-style room with a large en-suite. Within the grounds is a lovely fishpond with its own relaxation deck, while outside, at the owner's suggestion, we were able to take a lovely early morning walk through the paddy fields. Lunch and dinner were copious and delicious; breakfast was more basic. This homestay is perfect for anyone wanting to experience life in rural India.

We've spent one night here in a deluxe suite which included a spacious bedroom, a sitting room (or second bedroom), a veranda and a good sized bathroom. Beautiful rustic furniture. The wifi worked only in the main hall of the house, otherwise everything was perfect. We had a bit of wildlife in the sitting room and the bathroom - small lizards and a banana frog - but this is part of the experience and they were more scared of us than we of them. Our host took us to a temple festival in the evening, which was an amazing experience. Dinner was served on the big veranda of the house and our host joined us. It was of freshly prepared local dishes, everything was very tasty. They serve beer as well, for that they had to get a special licence. Breakfast was good too.

This place is a beautiful old house and the owner is fifth generation living there. The rooms were large and mainly comfortable. We did have a bit of wildlife (frogs and lizards) in our bathroom but this just added to the charm. Though seeing the frog jump from the toilet pan made us jump too. It was very hot in Palakkad and humid too, the air con in the room not quite effective enough to counteract this.

The owner took us to see a temple festival on our first evening. It was quite a sight to behold and the music and enthusiasm of the locals was catching.

The food served here is all local food, freshly prepared and the best food we had in our 2 week trip. In fact probably the best we have had anywhere in our 20 trips to India! We tasted some dishes we have never even heard of before and there was not an overload of rice! It was wonderful. Beer is served here too.

We were taking on a tour of the town and a visit to Tipu Sultans fort. This was very interesting and became even more relevant when we later visited Mysore and learned more about Tipu.

Overall a lovely stay
