Pangia, a small village in the Southern Highlands. The Inn has 8 rooms, a toilet with shower and a very nice kitchen, where you also have the opportunity to make yourself something to eat. It is offered breakfast and dinner. The vegetables come from the garden and are freshly prepared. On special occasions, the locals prepare a "mumu". The meat and vegetables are cooked in an earth oven and covered with banana leaves. On request, you can experience a "Mumu".

The space
People live here from the proceeds of their gardens and coffee growing. Southern Highlands has a lot of limestone mountains with huge caves, many of which are still unexplored. In addition to the mountains, wide valleys and river landscapes dominate. The climate is very pleasant year round and also the malaria danger is very low.

If you want to get to know the people, how they live, then you are exactly right here. The very personal guesthouse of Nicholas and his family has been built with great attention to detail. For 20 years Nicholas has been building his Inn. It is important to him the traditional construction. Many materials come from the forest. He trains the young generation so that the old craft will not be forgotten.

Long term visit is on request possible.
