Homestays – sleeping with people at home
Getting to know a destination through the eyes of a local. That is the journey of the moment. Homestays, accommodations where you can stay overnight at people’s home, are becoming increasingly popular. They offer you the chance to experience everyday life in a country up close and to get to know local people. At ‘homestay’ you may think of sleeping in a simple cabin, but there are homestays in all shapes and sizes.
