A beautiful traditional house with views of the Great Wall, a large private courtyard and mod cons. Walk the wall, explore the village or simply hang out in a beautiful, fresh and peaceful environment 1.5 hours drive from central Beijing.
This is a beautiful traditional village courtyard home lovingly upgraded. Set in a friendly village with shops and restaurants close by, the house is minutes from the Great Wall and other lovely walks through the orchards, farms, valleys and mountains nearby. A breath of fresh air for city dwellers! As cosy in the winter as it is outdoorsy in the summer, we have not one but two internal wood burning fires that heat up the traditional kangs, as well as underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathroom to keep you warm and toasty through the winter.
The guests have complete access to the house. There are two designated bedrooms, one with a double bunk bed and one with a traditional 'kang' style bed that sleeps up to 6! Finally the living room also has unofficially the largest kang in the world which easily sleeps up to 10! There are kids toys, a swing and paddling pool for toddlers and games etc.
We live in Beijing and can arrange a driver to pick you up from the airport or any location in Beijing and take you to the door - it normally takes 1.5 - 2 hours from central Beijing. We will be available by phone or email throughout your stay and have a local person who looks after the house who we can call if there is an emergency.
Best to park on the street and not attempt to drive down the narrow alley to the house. Parking is free and easy on the street
Please smoke outside, be kind and friendly to our neighbors and don't make too much noise after dark - people sleep early around here!
