We chose Pooppallys as an alternative to taking a houseboat, and are so pleased that we did.
The house is authentic, beautifully situated on the river, and comfortable if somewhat dated. The home-cooked meals were delicious and used produce from the amazing garden (ask for a tour). Paul arranged massages at the local Ayurvedic centre and for a backwaters tour in a motor lauch which took us into the small canals for a real taste of backwaters life. Both recommended. Take the public ferry into Allepy too, lots of fun meandering from bank to bank picking up passengers.
What really made the stay special was the sense of being welcomed by the whole family. This was a memorable Christmas.
There are mosquitos, impossible to avoid in the backwaters, but they didn't disturb us in our aircon room.
