If a search for absolute serenity is what brought you to Iya, head straight for Chiiori House. This restored Iya farmhouse, managed by the Chiiori Trust, is available for private overnight stays. While the recently renovated facilities are a lot more comfortable than what residents from past centuries were used to, the breeze in the cedar trees and the morning mist over the valley are timeless. You can prepare your own food in the kitchen or arrange for a local cook to
prepare an Iya-style dinner.
