Julien Minet and Mrs Lu

Chashiwu, the Tea Master House, is the result of the dedicated efforts of Julien Minet. At the end of the 90's he made a mission for UNESCO as an ethnologist and discovered this miraculously well preserved region of China.
During the two years with UNESCO he covered many local villages and fell in love with one of them. Since his discovery he kept its name secret to protect this little paradise from mass tourism.
One day a peasant made a proposal to him to own his Ming dynasty ruin.
Julien accepted this offer and several years later completed a total renovation of it
.
The story of this adventure became rather famous and many persons wanted to discover this wonderful place. As a result of all of this interest, it was only natural that Julien would open his gates to visitors. The first time being in 2003.

Inspired by Huizhou History, Julien made his home the perfect place to begin a discovery of the rich local culture and unique environment.
To make this part of China accessible to everyone, he created a home to share, offering comfortable hospitality and authentic antiquity. This type of living is very rare in this part of Anhui Province. Since 2009 Mrs Lu, a local, helps him with the daily challenges that build the continued success of Chashiwu !

Julien is married and a father of two boys.

Mrs Lu is married, has two children and one granddaughter.
