Gem Valley View

Gem Valley View

Homestay without too much of a trek

More on Sapa

While Cat Cat village itself doesn’t offer any homestay options, a couple of places on the way down provide accommodation if you want to stay out of Sapa town and live the more simple life.

Travelfish says:

Gem Valley View is the first place you’ll come to, about a kilometre past the ticket booth. It’s an art gallery, with some impressive pieces by owner Tran Trong Chien, on display and for sale, and serves up drinks and light meals on a terrace with stunning views across the valley. Four basic rooms are upstairs, alongside a studio, each containing a mattress with mossie net and a wardrobe. A shared toilet is on the same floor but if you want a hot shower you’ll need to use the bathroom downstairs – it’s a bit of a squeeze but adequate. A good budget option with a pleasant feel to it.
