Farmhouse accommodation

Farmhouse is homestay type accommodation. Usually it is traditional village house inhabited by local family, who keep few rooms for the foreign guests.

Overnight in farmhouse is unique experience to witness traditional village life, but it also comes on sacrifice of some comfort. At some remote places, the farmhouse is the only fixed accommodation available.
