A highlight of our trip to Vietnam. Stunning view over the valley as a quiet and super authentic village is high up the mountain, this place is a true gem. However, nothing can outshine Mama Lili and her family’s hospitality, genuine kindness, openness and energy.
A must visit to anyone wanting to experience an authentic life of Vietnamese tribes, relax (or have a proper outdoor hiking experience with humble yet amazing fresh food.
Warm hearts of Mama Lili’s family makes this place so unique and special.
Mama Lili definitely made me feel at home, cooked a delicious dinner and breakfast, showed me around the valley and waterfalls, great!! And if you just walk outside, the view is superb (see the drone pictures).
Staying with Mama Lili is definitely THE HIGHLIGHT of my Vietnam travels. Ever since her warm greeting in Sapa, she took an amazing care of me, making sure I was having a good time throughout my stay in Hao Tao Village which is like a beautiful world of its own.
Mama Lili lives in a big wooden house overlooking the scenic valley of rice terraces and mountains - the view I stared at for hours! She cooks delicious meals, and even though you're too full too fast, you keep eating because it's just so tasty...
Thank you, Mama Lili, for everything and I'm definitely coming back! ...
We thoroughly enjoyed trekking with her, her sense of humour, company, and spending the night in her homestay hanging out with other trekkers and her family. The happy water does exactly what it's meant to.
The views from Mama Lili's place are simply beautiful.
Such a nice experience to spend some time at Mama Lili Homestay.
Surrounded by the mountains and the rice fields, you easily get an amazing feeling by staying there. But it's nothing compared to living with Mama Lili's and her family. One of the best traveling experience I had.
would be useless to say more. Go and see by yourself.
Nous avons passé 3 jours et 2 nuits en compagnie de Mama Lili.
Une experience incroyable sous tous les points de vues. Mama Lili et sa familles sont des hôtes fantastiques. Leur gentillesse et leur bonté nous à emmené à nous sentir aussi bien qu’à la maison.
Nous avons fait un trekking fabuleux goûté des repas copieux et excellents, des soirées arrosées, des sourires est savons que nous chérirons ces instants pour toujours.
Thank you very much Mama!
Hemos estado muy a gusto en tu casa. La comida buenísimo, la fiesta post-cena muy divertida y tu « happy water » muy buena.
Nos llevemos tu recuerdo a Barcelona.

From ELENA, ALICIA & FLAVIA
C’est le premier mot qui me vient à l’esprit. Mama Lili prend soin de nous comme une maman. Sa famille souriante et conviviale nous a accueilli les bras ouverts. Un trek sous la pluie mais l’experience était agréable.
On a mangé plus qu’à notre faim, assise près du feu, je l’ai observé nous préparé les plats. 3 jours et 2 dodo plus tard, je vais me souvenir de cette expérience toute ma vie.
Merci de nous avoir imprégné de votre culture
Dear Mama Lili,

C’était comme à la maison,
trois nuits près du feu, beaucoup de tasse de thé, un après midi broderie et des bons plats. Un peu de trek dans le brouillard et une vue dégagée sur les rizières au réveil.
Mama Lili est une vrai MAMA. Les enfants sont adorables et la famille accueillante!
From LISO & NICO
