You live amongs the local people, mostly rice farmers, but stay in a comfortable room in a hybrid Thai/modern village house. The atmosphere in the village is very relaxed and friendly. It is a fantastic place to observe life of ordinary Thai people in their daily life.
There is a programme for you if you wish: going to the field with a Thai family to plant rice or going on excursions, with or without an English speaking guide.
Upstairs is made of 100% teakwood and there are two bedrooms, one with airco, the other one with fan. You also can use the cozy living room upstairs.
In the garden is the \'waterfall house\' a delightful place where you can relax and eat. And if you wish you can even take Thai cooking lessons and learn how to make a green curry or hot and spicy soup!
