A great location surrounded by the backwaters and a profusion of different plants. Aby took us out on a small boat which was outstanding and it was very interesting to hear about his family background.The food was delicious. The rooms were unusual- all wood with an outdoor bathroom.

Aby, who runs Mappilassery on behalf of his family, was a great host, with a huge knowledge of the local area (go to see the Dragon Boat!)... More
