The CYAN DRAGON House (300 years old) has been bought and restored in 2012-2013 by a couple (she is Chinese, he Portuguese) after José Guedes retired. The reason of the option for Jinxi were the beautiful environment, the relatively clean air, very close distance to Shanghai and the warm and easy relationship with local people. José is the only foreign living in Jinxi. We aim to give visitors for one side the tradition and the culture of the old China but at same time offering very high comfort, quality of service and experiences for the senses in a very beautiful water town starting now to be well known in China. Very close to Jinxi there are famous water towns such as Zhouzhuang (7 kms), Luzhi (9 kms), Tongli (23 kms) and towns as Kunshan (24 kms), Suzhou (37 kms) Shanghai (62 kms). We will be happy to take you to visit these places
