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.

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.
