Akkarakalam Memoirs is an exotic farmhouse presented as an excellent souvenir of the ancient Akkarakalam family in Alleppey district with a tradition of 150 years. Lodged in the ideal settings of a rustic background, Akkarakalam Memoirs was handed over to its present 4th generation by a far-sighted visionary K.C. Joseph Akkarakalam.
