Nestled in Nine Tree Forest, La Felicità is an ideal getaway for city dwellers who crave some peace and quiet in nature.
What reminds us of Howl's Moving Castle are the rooms that look like large iron barrels.
You can climb up the external stairs of the barrel-like structures for an Insta-worthy shot!
Much like the real Howl's Moving Castle, the interior of the rooms is much cosier than what you'd expect from the rugged exterior. 🥰
Besides this Howl's Moving Castle lookalike, there are also other aesthetically pleasing spots around the homestay like a tunnel bed nook and a hanging birds nest like the ones in Bali.
The homestay also has other rooms with contemporary architecture that contrasts with the surrounding greenery - perfect for the 'gram!
The homestay area including the nearby pizza restaurant is pet-friendly so you might spot some cute dogs during your stay. There will also be less adorable animals, aka mosquitoes, around the area too so remember to bring along insect repellent.
