LE COLONIAL FORT - COCHIN, KERALA
Le Colonial, by the Chinese fishing nets of Cochin is probably Asia's oldest colonial house- dating back to 1506. Just adjacent to St. Francis Church, it is reputed to have housed Vasco da Gama and the Saint. After 150 years as the Protuguese Governer's home, it was one of the rare houses not to be destroyed when Dutch took Fort Cochin. It housed the Dutch Governors for century and a half till Ian vas Spall sold it to the British in 1795, who in turn, passed it to J.Thomas, the legendary English trader of tea.
These five captive centuries of history, have been lovingly restored and a veritable living museum. Art treasures from the colonial past now revive a scent of that era, making it a 'club' for discerning travellers. Rides with Le Colonial you on high sea galleons to the days of adventures, governors and sultans. Have a true Neemrana 'non-hotel' Hotel experience.
