10 Best Homestays in India to make your vacation memorable
This new concept of Homestay is gaining popularity real quick! Since Indian Hospitality is one of its kind, the guests/tourists who visit India mostly skip this amazing experience because of the stays in Hotel. Homestay is a place where visitors are accommodated in the family home only or some place just close by! After all, "Attithi Devo Bhaav"
Here is my list of favourite homestays in India.
Casa Coorg Homestay, Coorg
Nested in one of the lush green valleys of Coorg, this Coorg Homestay is one of the brilliant choices for the ones looking for a peaceful and serene setting. Covering a great variety of flora and fauna, this sure is a must visit! Also, this is a treat for the bird-watchers and golfers. Nothing can be more soothing than waking up to the chatter of birds on your window every morning!
