Big big thank you to Gombal Les Nyoman Suparnika and Gede Suparwan Debol and their families (and dogs!) for transforming their houses into homestays and hosting for over a week 13 students from Carroll University . Homestays expand beyond villas the lodging choices in Les Village for those who prefer an immersive cultural experience. It also allow ordinary homeowners to participate in the burgeoning ecotourism in Les Village.
