Debbie and I stayed in this village after a trek in the Nam Ha NPA. The villages in the area take turns on hosting trekkers as a way of suplementing their income although I had the feeling that not everyone in the village was into this. At times I felt a bit like an unwanted guest.

Village in Nam Ha NPA, Laos
The lower costs of the monsoon season from May to October is prone to risk of washed-out roads and slippery muddy trails while trekking. November to January are cool and dry but expect peak-season crowds in Luang Prabang.
