At only 900 metres away from Fort Kochi, The Francis Residence is the perfect place for those seeking 5-star service in a boutique homestay environment.
Asides from being at a convenient location from old colonial monuments and the picturesque bay of Arabian Sea, this homestay caters to keeping guests rested for their cultural explorations around Cochin.
During your stay, Francis and Rosy will ensure that you get all the personal touches to make your time relaxing. This little oasis features six vibrant air-conditioned rooms, all fully equipped and elegantly furnished.
Some of the best highlights that should not be missed are right within the accommodation itself, such as Rosy’s food, using recipes have been passed down for generations.
Standout dishes are her Alleppey Prawn Curry, Meen Pollichathu or the Malabar Fish Curry. Needless to stay a cooking class with her is indispensable. While Francis has the best insider tips to explore Fort Kochi but also other information about the area.
For example, the Indo-Portuguese Museum is a short 7-minute walk. The Cochin Shipyard is 5 kilometres away and can be reached either by bicycle or an arranged car pick-up. The beach is also within close proximity to the accommodation.
