Palkadavu Warium Villa Homestay, Wayanad, Kerala
If a house was built in 1946, then chances are that the place might just be eco-friendly given the architectural practices of the time. The place overlooks a green field and is covered with tropical plants. There’s also a bamboo tree hut to enjoy awesome views of the field. Apart from its eco-friendly nature, the homestay is situated at a beautiful remote location. It can accommodate 10+ guests and takes bookings for corporate orders too. Try it out if you are headed to Kerala!

La Belle Vie Naukuchiatal, Bhimtal, Nainital
Just the thought of a house made of natural stone and reclaimed wood makes us reminisce about the times spent in the mountains. The La Belle Vie Naukuchiatal Homestay has us longing for Nainital yet again. Located just 100 metres from the Naukuchiatal Lake, it is tucked away in a forest next to an eco-resort! So you could probably grab a bite at the restaurant at the neighbour’s. The homestay is ideal for a group of six. Rest assured, you will be blown away by the tasteful decor of the place.
