If you're looking for a homestay with beautiful furnishings, gorgeous people and the most delicious food imaginable then this is the place to go. Stunning empty beaches are a short tuk tuk away and idyllic backwaters are just around the corner. Cochin with its restaurants and galleries is a short drive away and the airport is close too.

We travelled from Munnar to Marco´s place a bit last minute with our family of 4 persons and were very happy he could propose us 2 very nice rooms in his old Keralian house.

Stayed here with my daughter. Have known Marco for a very many years; he is an aesthete and generosity personified, speaks fluent Mayalali and is a well-known figure in this State. Above all, he is a delightful host. The place is artfully rustic and authentic, something no hotel can ever give. The cook and his family have been with Marco...

We had a delightful stay at Marcos' and his family's place for Christmas 2015. Expect tasteful food, restful nights and joyful evenings. We felt as if we were home from the very beginning, thank you very much Marco!

We spent in "la Dame Rouge" two days and we would definitely like to go back! The Homestay is charming and relaxing, the personnel is extremely kind and friendly and the food amazing.

There is a real sense of living in a grand merchant's house as it might have been in the past. It is set in a lot of it's own space in an interesting residential road, detached from the normal tourist circuit. The house and it's rooms are large and unspoilt by progress in a positive sense, and this feeling is...

This is a very special home stay. It sounds paradoxical, but Marc, the French host, has managed to create a wonderfully authentic Indian homestay. The traditional house, built around a garden courtyard, retains its original character, and with the exception of electricity, hot water, and internet, everything is as it was a hundred years ago. The furnishings are traditional, with...

A special experience,after two weeks touring Golden Triangle the Rouge was just what was needed,unique accommodation and atmosphere to slow the pace.

We stayed at La Dame Rouge for too short a time - the nobly proportioned rooms, full of antique furniture, sculpture and curious carvings, were places to dream, to read, to listen to Marco's stories of life in India - Tanga's food was wonderful - we feasted like sultans and sultanas - the beach was only a short exciting ride...
