Pig's Heaven Inn (Zhūlánjiübā) Review

Wake to the crowing of roosters in this 400-year-old stone house on the fringes of Xidi, a village an hour's drive from Tunxi. Opened by a Shanghai artist who scoured the surrounding villages for curios, it's a rare chance to experience ancient village life—without giving up air-conditioning and Internet access, of course. The staff prepares tasty home-style meals for lunch and dinner using whatever's in season. A driver is on hand for local tours, airport pick-ups, and trips to Huangshan, making this a good base for exploring the area. A second, larger location is a 10-minute drive away.
