When you enter the house, the first building you face is SARANGCHE.
There are 2 room of bedroom and library in SARANGCHE building.
You have wide open view from the bedroom.
As you get inside from SARANGCHE, you will pass SARANG gate, a kitchen for SARANGCHE.
And there are HAENGRANGCHE and ANCHE as well.
HAENGRANGCHE is the building where butlers stay.
ANCHE is the heart of the house where the landlord stays.
I don’t know where to begin?
I made this booking for a weekend trip to Andong. Although the Hanok was about a 40 minuter drive to Andong we had a car and thought that this was a small price to pay for the experience of a stay in a traditional Korean village.
The booking was easy. We received our confirmation from the host within a few hours which left us plenty of time to pack and plan our trip properly. The host left a full address (which was ridiculously easy to navigate to) and two telephone numbers, just in case we had any problems or questions before our arrival.
The host messaged us to ask what time we would be arriving and to find out whether or not we would need a ride from the local bus station. As I said, we were driving but this was a very sweet and generous offer never the less.
As we arrived at the Hanok we were blown away by it’s breathtaking beauty. The pictures on the advertisement do not do it justice. The rustic look of each of the buildings was complimented by a dewy air and a sweet smoky smell of burning wood, which would keep our rooms nice and warm throughout the cold October night.
The host, and her husband, was very polite and extremely accommodating, assisting us whenever possible. Despite the language barriers we were greeted every morning and asked if we needed anything. This made the stay that much more relaxing.
I highly recommend this stay to anybody who wants to have a relaxing, stress free weekend away enjoying the wondering scenery and hospitality that Korea has to offer.
