The South India region
The sate of Kerala is situated on the Western coast in the far South of India.A tropical state,green & lush with 550 km coastline
on the Arabian sea,Kovalam is a laid -back resort with a choice of many little bars,shops & restaurants.
We are lucky to have tropical weather all year round,and with many festivals,and plenty to see.
We are situated in a quite road,but within walking distance of everything,taxis and rickshaws can park up right out side the property,we have many beaches to choose from,restaurants in abundance for everyone's taste,from authentic to the region,to European,and vegetarian,with fresh fish& sea food straight from the sea.,you can watch the fishermen pulling in their nets,as they have done for hundreds of years.
There are plenty of places to walk,or have a stroll, or enjoy a coffee in one of the many bars,and just people watch ,or go to the beach for a chill out day,and relax on a sun bed ,under a giant umbrella ,have a swim in the Arabian sea,meet new people,it has a very friendly atmosphere.

"lovely peaceful hideaway"
This is the most recent of several visits to Angie's pretty cottage. Met at the airport by Quinny (manager) then a short taxi ride to a friendly greeting from Angie and Den and a rest in an immaculatley presented cottage. Angie, Den and Quinny go to extreme lengths to make the holiday a trouble free pleasure. I have already arranged my next trip.
