I run a guesthouse with a Lao family amongst a community sensitive to the culture and respectfull to the surrounding environment. We welcome everyone with the positive energy and the true motives to do something more for the people in this rural area.
You would have an opportunity to interact with the local people, and so to see the real way of Lao.

You would gain an unique occasion to get right in the middle of the small Lao countryside in order to understand local people's habits, culture and taste their phenomenal cusine, which ingredients they're growing by themselves. But also practice your english, spanish and even lao if you are willing to do so!
After a recent flood, that came during last raining season, we need some help around our garden to get it back to its previous beauty.
Some small repairs in the rooms are also needed, therefore there is always something to do around.

Basic room in a bamboo house with a comfortable bed and mosquito net above. Your own toilet with a shower.
Don't expect western luxury, as hot water or air-con, but in an exchange you will get breath-taking views from the room's balcony which you can admire on the hammock.
I came to this place and melted with the simplicity of the people who treats me as the part of the family. Life goes slowly as the nearby river and it is not disturbed by any turbulances - except the monsoon.
You can go fishing and generally explore the area and interact with the locals.
50 km to the south, by bus you can get to the busier and more touristic side of Lao - Vang Vieng and enjoy their entertainment.
