The Village Houses have been renovated to make them cosy and comfortable yet to keep their simple charm and the experience of living in a Himalayan village house.
Each house has wooden beds with comfortable mattresses and linen, a bedside table, local chettai matted floor and some hooks on which to hang clothes.
Bathrooms are outside, with western toilets and the adjoining shower rooms have slate tiles and showers are taken using brass buckets and mugs filled with hot water that our staff have boiled for you.
There are small living/dining rooms for the few weeks of the year when it is too cold to have dinner outside and partially covered outdoor eating areas where you can enjoy your dinner under the stars with a fire to keep you warm.
Because this is a true and rare insight into a genuine Indian way of life, but as a result it is very important to remember that a stay in the village houses is as a guest of the local people and therefore the host's traditions and customs must be respected.
