About Samhitakasha - The Cob House
Welcome to a unique setting. We offer a beautiful family home built out of organic materials such as mud, straw and wood. It is finished with natural sealants, eco-friendly paints and lots of love. Here you can relax in a room furnished with natural and organic materials, take a shower heated by the sun and soon recycled in the garden, and enjoy a full organic breakfast.
The guest accommodation, with its own private entrance, consists of a spacious triple bedroom with an en-suite shower and ablution facilities. The main bedroom has a luxury queen-size bed and there is also a single futon bed that is suitable for an additional adult. Linen, curtains, mattresses and towels have all been made from natural and organic or recycled materials. The room features views of the mountains. There is access to the garden which includes an outside fireplace, and off-street parking is available.
