AN OVERVIEW! Nestling in the Eastern foothills of the mighty Western Ghats, "Cardamom House" overlooks the monsoon dependent "Kamarajar Lake" and is surrounded by unbelievably beautiful mountainous scenery. Recently we have completely upgraded all facilities and now have a superb modern SWIMMING POOL ; FREE WI-FI ; AIR-CONDITIONING ; NEW THICK SPRING MATTRESSES ; VOLLEYBALL FIELD ; H.D. TV IN COMMUNAL AREA ; CHILDREN WELCOME!!The staff have been working together as a team for some 16 years - and several of them (having visited the U.K) speak English. We are proud of our cuisine which encompasses a wide range of culinary styles (Indian, Continental, Thai, Chinese - and we often 'invent' recipes ourselves! Food is of the highest quality and we purchase only the freshest of fresh vegetables sometimes twice a day - to ensure the 'pick of the crop'.BIRD LIFE AND WILDLIFE? There is an abundance of Birdlfe including peacocks and many others. Leopard, black panther, lynx, jungle cat, bison, sambar,barking and mouse deer have also been spotted from time to time. HOW TO GET HERE? CHENNAI(MADRAS) airport is a 45 minute flight from both MADURAI and TRICHY Airports - both an easy 2 hour drive away. So despite being in a very remote place, we are very easy to get to!THINGS TO DO? Relaxing : walking : photography : swimming : yoga : meditation : Village Tour : Madurai Temple : Kodaikanal Hill Station. In summary - our little "Family Homestay" owned and managed by Dr. Chris - a retired British physician. Cardamom House is a perfect place to 'drop out' and have a truly relaxing holiday whilst being 'spoiled rotten' by our excellent staff.

hello, are pets allowed?
Sorry about the delay but I was in the U.K.when you posted your question We have a Labrador dog ourselves and, provided your dog is toilet trained and well behaved (not aggressive, likely to attack other guests or eat their children) you will be welcome to let your pet enjoy a stay here! Bring all needs such as basket, blanket, toys, treats dog food etc and DO let us know in advance. Again sorry about the delay.
