Jorge was a genuinely wonderful guide, he made himself available at 11 pm in the night when I arrived. The next day he walked me around Quito and shared so much detail about the city's art. During my stay there, he was readily helping with my various questions and requests for assistance. The hotel room and the bathroom at ILLA were both beyond expectations. An amazing vacation we will never forget!

Perfect fireplace, interiors and great terrace. Am coming back shortly

Our first family (children aged 5,8,11) trip to India surpassed our expectations! This cottage was to European standards but was next to a local residence so you feel you have a genuine experience. From the cottage we had great trips to the Buddhist monastery, The Owners orchard in the Hills, shopping for scarves in Kullu and the Hindu temple and hustle and bustle in Manali were all highlights but the great cultural experience and spectacular views are the real secret! I'd highly recommend this cottage - don't forget some warm clothes as well as your summer ones!

We visited with friends for five nights towards the end of April, the cottage is new, large and very well appointed it carries all the creature comforts for an enjoyable vacation. The location just off the highway in Bandrol is superb, a stones throw away from Naggar and Kullu with stunning views of the surrounding mountains. Loved the stone exterior and all wood flooring in the cottage. Also an ideal getaway as you are not in the hustle and bustle of the two major towns of Kullu and Manali but both are very accessible for food and recreation.
