Far Cry lies a little remote (15-20 min from main road) but provides a unique house with pool. House looks even better at night (as the photo shows). The surrounding is peaceful and green. Staff is very helpful and prepares terrific meals. You will feel home from the first moment.

There are many other places of historical and natural interest in the Cultural Triangle within easy reach.
