What Makes It Awesome
As you amble along the streets of the historic Fort Kochi, you’ll come across a grand, whitewashed bungalow that is now The Old Courtyard. Built over 200 years ago, the property first belonged to an affluent Jewish family before it was converted into a gorgeous hotel by a local couple. Weave your way past the cobbled courtyard, doorways with graceful arches, stained glass windows and wooden stairways, and notice the beauty of the property. The rooms come stacked with vintage furniture, large colonial four-poster beds and wooden rafters. A standard room includes A/C, twin-beds, attached toilet and bath, and complimentary breakfast.
If you're in for a lazy holiday, we recommend that you while away time in the courtyard. Parked on a stone bench under the mango tree, that’s at the centre of the space, you can order up local or Continental delicacies from the kitchen. The Old Courtyard scores on the location criteria as well. It's a short walk from the top sights that Kochi has to offer. Head to the iconic Kashi Art gallery and cafe for a cuppa, and check out the colourful street art, beautiful doorways and quaint houses along the way.
Visit the ageing St. Francis Church, the first European church to be built in India. There's also the Mattancherry Palace, where you can gawk at mythological murals, Hindu temple art, and grand portraits of erstwhile Rajas. Nearby, the centuries-old Paradesi Synagogue is bedecked with Belgian chandeliers and its floors made with hand-painted tiles from China.
