We stayed at La Dame Rouge for too short a time - the nobly proportioned rooms, full of antique furniture, sculpture and curious carvings, were places to dream, to read, to listen to Marco's stories of life in India - Tanga's food was wonderful - we feasted like sultans and sultanas - the beach was only a short exciting ride...

I spent 1 week in La Dame Rouge and I was very impressed by the excellent and special place and its atmosphere, and by the lovely host family that is managing it. The room was great and the food was really excellent! I will for sure return one day (hopefully soon).

We had an extraordinary stay with Marco and his Indian family, the most lovely, happy and relaxing experience not only of our time in the country but of all our travels in Asia. La Dame Rouge is a colorful pearl in a leafy sheath with a unique atmosphere, a very tastefully furnished and decorated home tucked away in a large... More

Wow what a wonderful place. Firstly, we arrived at Cherai Beach during the two day national strike so would have had no way of getting to La Dame Rouge as there were no taxis or rickshaws operating. However, Marco and his neighbour came to pick us up on their motorbikes and when the strike was over the next day we... More

We have just returned from our 10 day holiday in Cochin staying at La Dame Rouge. We chose this Homestay from it's excellent reviews. We weren't disappointed. Marco and his family made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed in the very spacious suite with large bedroom, lounge, shower room and private massage... More

Stayed here in December on a short holiday. We were there for 3 nights. Very very personalized service and a great hotel. Guess because it's a small hotel it becomes easy to offer personalized service. Meals were very good, the chef took personal interest. The rooms are nice, individually and tastefully furninshed. Was a good break from hectic schedule of... More

6 days rest and peace before a busy business trip. Great time, good food, ideal accommodation no problem doing just what you want. Excellent organisation from Marco including sorting me out with an Indian SIM card, nothing was too much trouble.

We were so happy to have Marco and his wonderful family in a lovely house perfectly off the beaten track from Cochin. Marco welcomed us into our bi-level gorgeously made-up suite early in the morning (after an overnight bus trip from Mysore), let us sleep off the morning and offered us fantastic breakfasts and dinners and helped us to plan...

La Dame Rouge is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting Kerala state. It is located just a few kilometers North of Kochi (easy to reach by bus or taxi) on the Vypin island. The master of the place, Marco, is also the soul of the house. He is very welcoming and will do whatever is possible to... More
