Tucked away in the Sahyadri hills, touching a beautiful lake & surrounded by lush greenery. Enjoy a swim with a breathtaking mountain sunset view or take a refreshing walk in the orchard or just relax in the gazebo with a book to leaf through.
The villa rests on a 5 acre property, surrounded by beautiful fruit trees including mango, papaya, guava among others, flowering plants and the calm waters of the Vadiwale lake (which makes for a refreshing swim any time of day). The villa has one spacious bedroom and one semi-open loft room. It is attached to a huge studio (15 X 30 feet wooden floor) which can be used for yoga or meditation activities. Guests can also relax in the large sunken bath in lake facing master bathroom.
The farm is a labour of love created by artists and our wonderful caretaker couple is available at all times for any assistance.
