The Houses, the interiors,the bedroom and bath were exceptional. The Food was better than exceptional! Given the circumstances of the nationwide strike, our hosts adapted our schedule brilliantly and spent so much time with us - really ensuring we had an informative and enjoyable stay. A real highlight was the food - the best we have tasted in India! David really enjoyed talking to John and delving into his great knowledge of Indian culture, politics and Palai life.
