Friends in Khajuraho Homestay was founded in 2014 by Vijay from Khajuraho and his wife Vio from France. They turned their family house into a homestay to make a living while offering visitors a true, authentic Indian stay in the beautiful, rural old village of Khajuraho. Five years later, Vijay, Vio and their young daughter have moved to France, and Vijay’s little brother Ravi has taken over with the rest of the family. We rent two rooms with a hot shower bathroom. In our house you will live an authentic Indian family experience while enjoying comfort and privacy. If you wish you can also eat at our home: we have traditional Indian home cooking made by a caring mother who knows that Western tastebuds usually have a hard time with spices! Our kitchen is fitted with a UV and RO water filter and we also sell mineral water bottles. We will be happy to guide you in and around Khajuraho, we will explain our culture and traditions, and the history of the temples of Khajuraho. We can also take you to nearby villages to authentic Indian rural experience with scenery breathtaking.
Ravi is the youngest of 7 siblings, 5 sisters and 2 brothers. He holds a BSc in Maths and certificates in Hotel Management and in Computing. He has also studied German at the Goethe Institute in Kolkata and Delhi up to level B1, and he worked for a travel agency in Delhi for 2 years. As well as running this homestay, Ravi has founded his own travel agency, Friends in India, and he gives literacy classes in a small village near Khajuraho, Tikri.
Our house is located in a quiet rural area of Khajuraho, a few minutes walking distance from the "market" (town centre) and at the edge of the old village. We live right in front of the Khajur Sagar (lake) and the Brahma Temple, and we can see the Vamana and the Jawari temples from our rooftop. Most visitors really enjoy the calmness and the greenery of Khajuraho, especially after travelling through busy, noisy Indian cities for a long time. Our house is located just 10 minutes walking distance from the town centre, and from 0 to 3 km away from the main Khajuraho temples.
