There is nothing we didn`t like about this unique place!!!!!!the view from the bungalow, from the restaurant-from everywhere is amazing!!it is so quiet, you hear the insects, the birds and the big bamboo "whispering", when there`s some wind-and that`s it.each bungalow has his own terrace with a great hammock made from wood.the bed was very cosy and not that hard like the other beds i had till now in laos.it was very cold in the night, so we got as many blankets as we needed.there`s enough electricity to charge whatever you need to charge.in the evening the stuff made a fire and we enjoyed sitting there with chris, the owner and his sweet little cat.chris is a very interesting and nice person.he should write a book about his life!we loved to listen to his stories!also the stuff was very open and helpful.we enjoyed the food and drank coffee from the machine!(and this in the middle of nowhere.there`s no point to complain.it is just a pitty that we couldn`t stay longer! if you are close to vientiane, so don`t miss this place (about 1 hour and something from vientiane away, they pick you up)-it is heaven on earth!!!!
