The breakfast and lunch can be served on a wooden terrace outdoor. The antiques benches were from Vietnam and Madula Indonesia. While you are enjoying your breakfast, you can admire the ever changing blue color of the sea, observing the busy activity of the near by fishing pier. The emerald color tiled swimming pool on the deck is under an enormous jack fruit trees, you can always enjoy the sun bath and have shade and breeze the whole day. We have five en suit rooms in the villa. Each room has different themes. Ground floor bed room is the colonial room with collections of Petit Journal prints to recall the past glory of the British and French colonial era. A king size posted bed and an out door shower space. First floor bed room has an open balcony, a posted bed with a small desk for some one who wants to spend some time on his laptop but with a breath taking sea view. Specially we can admire the sunset. White room is over looking the inner patio, a girly touch with angels collection from the Philippines and a white painted poster bed. Then their is a mezzanine area for books and DVD collections, a place to watch TV after sun set and enjoy quality family time. A small room is at the back of the mezzanine, an open balcony to watch the villagers passing by a quite street. We provide daily maid service, except Sunday, the rate includes free WIFI and telephone, fax, but no oversea's cal available. The Colonial Legend villa is a place to relax, suitable for family, we welcome pets also. Située directement sur la plage face à une mer turquoise et avec une piscine cette maison est un rare bijou meublée d'antiquités de toute l'Asie. Elle dispose de 5 chambres avec chacune sa salle de bain privative, 2 salles à manger ( intérieure et extérieure), un espace home cinéma à l'étage, cuisine toute équipée. Vous aurez le service de Iyad, une gouvernante qui s'occupera de votre bien être et sera là pour vous conseiller / aider. Elle pourra vous préparer petit déjeuner ou déjeuner si vous lui fournissez les ingrédients. C’est un cordon bleu en cuisine thaï. A proximité immédiate, il y a de nombreux restaurants et commerces ainsi que des écoles de plongée. On rejoint Koh Phangan aisément par Koh Samui, dont l’aéroport est desservi depuis Bangkok (une vingtaine de vols par jour), Singapour, Kuala Lumpur ou Hong Kong. On prend ensuite un bateau pour une traversée de 30 minutes. On peut également passer par Surat Thani, la capitale provinciale sur le continent. C’est plus long (1 une heure et demie de traversée) mais moins cher. La villa est dans le petit village de pêcheurs de Chaloklum (12 km du débarcadère). Un lieu préservé, authentiquement thaï, loin des masses touristiques.

Super
Je recommande ce lieux magique cependant on reste sans contact avec le propriétaire... la maison est superbe mais les lieux restent un peu abîmés.. la mer et la plage sont accessibles directement.

Un lieu exceptionnel
Nous avons passé une semaine dans cette maison magnifique, construite entre la plage du port et la rue principale du village de Chaloklam. Nous nous sommes tout de suite sentis comme chez nous dans ces vastes pièces à la décoration extraordinaire. Les photos, et les descriptions passionnées que fait Alain, sont tout à fait conformes à la réalité. Pendant une semaine, nous avons donc vécu au rythme de ce petit port, observant depuis la terrasse les départs et arrivées de ces bateaux multicolores. Il faut savoir donc que le port étant animé, l'activité commence tôt le matin, et s'arrête tard le soir... et que la fête du temple, qui dure 3 jours, elle aussi haute en couleurs, est, elle aussi, bien sonore... Le prix à payer pour être au centre d'un village thaïlandais encore épargné par le tourisme de masse. Merci à Alain pour tous ses conseils, sa réactivité, son enthousiasme... et la possibilité qu'il donne aux touristes de vivre une expérience authentique.

I wish I owned that place!
The locations is perfect as its on the beach so it's peaceful but in a small village so you don't feel alone. The house is beautiful, full of art pieces from different places. It has 5 bedrooms, one nicer than the other and all 5 very unique with their en-suite bathrooms. Moreover, the lady taking care of the house, Iyat, is so sweet and so helpful. I absolutely highly recommend this house, both for the actual house and it's location.

Magnifique séjour
Cette maison a été parfaite pour notre séjour entre amis , nous sommes partis à 10 et nous avons tous pu dormir dans des chambres très confortables avec une salle de bain par chambre. l'emplacement est idéale , situé sur une belle plage peu fréquenté, dans le nord de l'ile. Les services proposées avec la maison ont été exceptionnel grâce à la "made" qui nous a notamment préparé un délicieux petit déjeuner tout les matins. Je recommande de louer cette maison magnifique et très confortable situé dans un petit coin de paradis.

Elegant and quiet, colonial legend deserves its own category
We were two families each with three children ranging from 1`-8, this house was able to contain us all comfortably. This home was furnished by a lover of fine things, it was a pleasure to sit and read a book inside or to look at the art that is scattered though out the property. The house is spacious with a small pool and private access to the beach. The housekeeper Yack was always discreet and had a gentle manner. The house is located in a quiet village with friendly locals. The Italian place is surely worth a visit. Alain the owner, was prompt in his responses to my questions and was very pleasant to deal with, our stay here was absolutely perfect.

A serene place for Relax and Renew.
A beach house full of past nostalgia & collectibles! The Colonial Legend villa is a universe apart in a fisherman's village called Chalokram. Early morning, we can hear the birds singing inside the patio, butterflies passing through the corridor. Our family members live in different part of the world. Finally we could gather all the members at the same place. I enjoyed practicing yoga on the sea view deck. Watching the fishing activity at the pier in front of the house. My grown up kids performed their sun teint on the beach just down the deck. My husband spent his time on his Internet, his favorite place was the first floor balcony. We also loved the sea food from the near by Thai restaurant. The villa is a place to relax and renew. The house keeper was friendly and helpful.
