The Orchha Homestay
The homestay in Ganj, a neighbourhood of Orchha, gives travelers a chance to discover the daily life of the majority of Indians today, by living with a family of farmers or artisans. This unique experience will allow you to understand rural life in this colourful country.
In addition to discovering the architectural beauties of this ancient, royal capital with its 17th century palaces and temples, you can visit the town of Orchha, the nature reserve, swim in the river and ride a bike around the town and countryside.
The project was initiated in 2009 to give women the opportunity to practice an income-generating activity, while looking after their homes and families. Half of the rent for the accommodation goes to paying off the interest-free loan provided by the association for building the room and sanitary block, another part goes to cover the operational expenses and the rest, including all the money received for meals, is given to the host family. Friends of Orchha has also been able to build about twenty bathrooms and toilets for other families in the neighbourhood.
The accommodation package includes breakfast for 2 people.
