Alleppey, Kerala

Mid Range

Snuggled in a verdant and untouched spot of rustic Kerala, the story of Olavipe Homestay is a revered Keralan tale. Long ago, a small emerald islet surfaced from the confines of the Kaithappuzha backwaters and fascinated locals. Astounded by the beauty of this place, they named it Olavipe – a gift of the waves. Civilization developed on it, but remained untouched by the passage of time. This tiny village has been home to 13 known generations of the ‘Parayil Tharakans,’ a Syrian Catholic family that consisted of land owners. Their home, ‘Thekkanat Periyal’ is positioned in the heart of a bustling farm, amidst ancient trees and chirping birds that coexist in peace with the dazzling backwaters.

The mansion has four guest bedrooms that are available to tourists. Large and airy, they afford ultimate comfort and convenience, even with the lack of air-conditioning that isn’t even required. Tropically situated and gorgeously decorated, staying at the Olavipe Alleppey is a dream come true for travelers who want to feel the essence of Kerala. Local produce is used to carve authentic traditional dishes which can be enjoyed with the resident family and other guests. The surrounding organic farm grows more than enough for self-sufficiency and its produce includes vanilla, areca nut, flowers, vegetables, fish, cows and goats among other things. There’s plenty to do at the farm and guests can also take country walks close by. All in all, a stay at Olavipe Homestay is a magical rural escapade.
