These five village houses have been renovated into gloriously beautiful rental properties, with old wooden beams and traditional-style beds mixed with subtle modern touches, all nestled among the mountains and valleys of Huangyankou village (120 km from the city), next to crumbling Great Wall watchtowers on the hill above. Larger groups will want to go for "Po Shang," a two-story, three-bedroom home, complete with fireplace, bathtubs, iPod stereo, private garden, and two
outdoor terraces. Couples may prefer to opt for a room in "Stone House," an old barn now converted into smaller one-bedroom studios.
