Chintheche Inn overview

Chintheche Inn is situated on the sandy beaches of the northern lake shores with the Viphya Mountains as a backdrop and remnant patches of tropical rainforest nearby. Chintheche has one of the most beautiful settings in the country and is surrounded by a variety of activity options - the local village and market are always entertaining and the nearby Bandawe Mission offers a fascinating insight into the country's past. The beach offers swimming (and there is a pool for rough weather!),wind surfing, sailing and beach barbeques can be arranged. Other activities of offer include mountain biking and horse riding.

There are ten comfortable en-suite rooms all in a central block facing the lake with the gardens behind.

"What a beautiful spot on Lake Malawi. We loved it but were we just unlucky with the weather? It was cold and windy for the first 3 days then gradually got warmer and calmer. Our last day was lovely and Bob got his snorkelling. We had a lovely suite and the staff were great and very helpful. The food was rather ordinary but that was not why we were there. We did have a thought on the 3rd cold day that perhaps we should have gone to the coast instead!!"
