Inspired by the beautiful life. The cosy and comfortable house is made with natural stone and reclaimed wood quite like what it is supposed to be for a house in the hills. Enjoy your stay in the suites. Enjoy the quite and natural surroundings.

The space

The space is in the 'Lake District' of Uttrakhand. La Belle Vie is just 100 meters to the Naukuchiatal Lake. Tucked away in the midst of a forest and near an eco-resort. At the same time it is close to markets, hospitals, restaurants and other recreational activities like boating, paragliding, treking, nature walks etc. It's like a hub from where one can travel to exotic places like Ranikhet, Binsar, Mukteshwar, Ramgarh, Almora. A minimum of 2 families (2 adults, 2 kids) can easily fit in to 2 suites.
Ideally, the space is for 6 people since there are 3 double beds however we can accommodate for 4 more people with mattresses that are placed on the lofts in 2 rooms. Additional charge for accomodation beyond 6 people is only Rs. 1000/- per person per day.

Guest access

All guest will be able to access room, bathrooms and loft facilities. Telephone, internet, kitchen, garden, refrigerator, heater. Basic things that one needs to be comfortable. The guest's can also order from a basic menu incase they don't wish to cook themselves.

However, kitchen will close by 10:30 pm. On request it may be extended by an hour only. Our cook cum caretaker needs to come in early to prepare the kitchen for breakfast and other meals.

Interaction with guests

During guest stay, there will be interaction with staff and Manager. The owner might be present when there are guests sometimes. The Manager will help arrange cab facility, travel arrangements if required.

Other things to note

Important to carry your own wine and cheese. It is either difficult to find or more expensive. Beer and beverages are available in the vicinity but might cost more than in the city.

Kitchen items are not to be moved out of the kitchen.

Guests should take of the place as if it is their own. The house is made with labour of love. A lot has gone into the design of the place.

3. Small pets are allowed but all litter needs to be cleared by the guests themselves. Please don't throw bundles of tissue and poo as it blocks the pipeline and it is difficult to clean up and becomes hugely cumbersome. One needs to be careful of mountain leopards. Pets should be with guest at all times.

We had such a relaxing time and came back feeling so rejuvenated. The house is so very well designed, with attention to the smallest of details. Special mention to the piping hot home-made food that was simply sumptuous. I'd highly recommend this for a relaxed few days far from the noise of the city.
