Appetising Kerala Food and many other Dishes. A flexible time table for Dining and last but not least the services of a Manager who will help plan your holiday sight- seeing and shopping trips and organise your transport to and from the house.
Included also in the price is a Meet and Greet service to and from the airport on arrival and departure. The garden extends to some 4 acres of tropical fruit garden which is well screened and very secure. The house is some 5500sq ft over 2 floors which are cool and shady under a glazed tile roof. A small patio sun trap forms part of the house upstairs overlooking the pool and garden.
The house faces East and overlooks the pool which is filtered and can be lit up at night. There are a couple of showers by the pool. and lots of space to party and socialise together in the beautiful Kerala weather.
All bedrooms are large double rooms (2 single beds/Double) with fans and climate control units and they are all En-Suite with Walk-In showers which are tiled and modern facilites and kept spotlessly clean.
The air is really nice country air well away from the city smog and pollution where the posh hotels are!
We can take you to the major cities for shopping trips, site seeing, beaches etc. We have an on call service for a air-conditioned transport which comes to the house and for the informal outings its fun to call an auto rickshaw for a trip out into the country or along the canal or the local town and best of all its very cheap.
Take a look at the pictures, read all our reviews, and best of all speak to the owners who holiday regularly at the house and with the on site Manager can really make the difference to ensure your holiday is the best ever and problem free.
If you enjoy wildlife, photography, walking in the country, swimming, birdlife, admiring the garden fruit trees - its all here for your private enjoyment.
We also have Satellite TV, Internet, Childrens games, books to read and a small gym with a treadmill and an exercise bike to work up an appetite. Bottled water is available 24/7 and soft drinks and if you like beer and wine etc then we will bring it in for you at cost.
Finally, there is no washing up - meals are provided at the times you would like them and discarded clothing is simply left in the washing baskets where they are collected and washed. The rooms are cleaned and tidied everyday and the bed sheets are changed regularly.
Obviously this 5 star service is not without cost but at £35 per day per person ALL IN with only beer and wine to pay for extra and food to die for.....its got to be the deal of the year.
Excellent and varied Daily Menu.

About Mr William Howarth or Dr Sabita Dutt

Mr William Howarth or Dr Sabita Dutt purchased this chateau / country house in 2003
Why Mr William Howarth or Dr Sabita Dutt chose Kerala
The both of us just fell in love with the beauty of the place. It has a magical charm - the house faces east and the morning sun slowly rising above the tree line provides an ambience which once experienced can never be forgotten. Likewise in the evenings with the sun going down - the birds coming for their welcome drink in a waterfall we have created - dusk brings another special ambience of stillness as one enjoys an evening drink by the poolside.
What makes this chateau / country house unique
Flexibility and Value for money is our ethos.
The house is over a 100 years old - beautifully restored and maintained. Located in the Palakkad District of Kerala close to a village called Chalavara and the nearest town is called Cherpluschery about 4kms from the house. Entrance to the property is double gated with 4 acres of partly landscaped garden, including small ponds and wells, good parking, and numerous fruit trees, teak trees, shrubs, pepper vines and flowers. Wild peacocks abound with their young families (we feed them and they enjoy the wild fruits). A very well maintained private garden swimming pool with good filtration borders the house in excellent privacy.
