The Homestay Experience

Our guests choose to stay in a homestay for all kinds of reasons. For some who want to experience authentic culture by staying with a local, away from the hustle and bustle. 
As a wander bug, do you spend some time of the year on the move? 
Staying with a local host offers the comforts of home during your travels and also a friendly local to give an insight into the area and advice on the must-see spots.
It’s always a surreal experience, waiting for your host to pick you up and along comes a life of adventure. First thing in the morning you may get for breakfast with fruit freshly picked from the host’s garden. You simply can’t get that from a hotel for sure.
Some of our hosts pride themselves on providing guests with as much fresh produce from their garden as possible. As you can witness they leave no stone unturned when it comes to making sure you have the best of their home grown fruit and veggies. They will make sure that guests eat healthy from the garden and make it a part of the experience.
Apart from taking in the views and fresh air, there are plenty of great local pubs, restaurants, and shops where you can take in some local cuisine and traditional music. Listen to their recommends.
Travel is all about the people you meet and having that direct connection with a local, staying with them in their cosy home and feeling comfortable in a homely environment is a unique way to experience a country and spend your holiday.
