Chole Cottage

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life at Chole Cottage, a private cottage on the shores of Lake Malawi….The Lake of Stars.

Spend time with family and friends nestled in this lush oasis with access to a palm strewn sandy beach.  There is also a swimming pool for those who prefer not to swim in the Lake.

Chole Cottage

Chole Cottage comprises two cottages:

  • The Large Cottage is lake-facing, has 4 bedrooms of which two are en-suite and sleeps a total of ten people. Each bedroom has ceiling fans and mosquito nets.  There is also a large living room and dining area, including a bar with a panoramic view of the lake.
