We spend few days in Orchha with one of the family of this association. And it was a real pleasure. The room was large, clean and practical,in the courtyard, where all the family life happens. After few hours, even with basic English we felt really confortable and learn a lot about tradition and way of living. You can eat with them on the best meal of India. If you need anything, the member of the association is there to help us to organise trip, tour... Etc but without pushing! Warmly recommanded!
Our stay in Orchha was truly special. For those of you who want to experience real village life in India, you will not be disappointed. Our family the Yadav’s were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Any request such as hot water and blankets were taken care of. Talking to the family you soon understand the challenges that they face. It was inspiring to be part of their life for a few days. Don’t expect too much luxury, there is no running water, the toilet is a hole in floor and it can get cold in the winter, but the house was very clean and cosy, and very homely. We loved the simplicity of it. Romi, the manager, was one of the best guys we have met in India. Professional and on point, he made our time there run very smoothly. Totally recommend the experience !
I must thank Mr Romi, Kusum and Manoj for their love and hospitality. Homely stay with tasty food. They even took care of my old mother who could not move around the town and stayed back during the day time. It was a lovely stay and we celebrated Diwali along with the community children. It was a bit challenging for my mother as the wash rooms are bit far from the room and because of her age, she had to use the washroom several times during the night. Otherwise a good stay.
The family we stayed at was so friendly, lovely and welcoming. The children speak English very well and the room is clean! You’ll experience the lifestyle of people in rural areas and it’s definitely not touristic.
Without knowing much about this village we really lucked out. We were welcomed into the Yadav family and had an absolutely fabulous stay. We participated in their daily life, from cooking, schooling, to visiting the farm. During our stay we met the founder of this project, a passionate woman who made this dream into a reality. Many local families are involved in this project and the homestays connect them with the outside world and especially bring a much-needed extra source of income. The Yadav's home is basic, but very comfortable with everything we needed, including a private room with a comfortable bed with a good fan, a shower, a common area to meet with the family and delicious food. A big thank you to Kiran, Surendra, Mini, Khushi and of course Mojo. We really do hope to return one day - or at least keep in touch with the family.…
