Aura is a 3 acre property set in the middle of crop fields in the village of Manakpur Sharif, about 15 minutes from Chandigarh, India.

My husband Atul and I live by ourselves here, and have lots of room to spare for fun, interesting people who're looking for a peaceful vacation away from the city.

We'll serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, assuming you would want to stay in during your time at Aura.

The space

Aura Farmhouse is a 12500 sq. ft. farm house set in the centre of a 3 acre farm land. The property has a 384 meter walking track along its boundary and is perfect for relaxed morning/evening walks. The house itself is spacious, airy and open. You have access to a large media room with a selection of over 1200 English and Hindi movies.

The house opens on to a large swimming pool with attached changing rooms. The back lawn has a trampoline and further extends into the orchard where you will find a large variety of fruit trees. The orchard also houses a 1000 sq. ft. workshop for recreational stuff like painting etc.

Guest access

As our guest at Aura, you will be able to access all parts of the house other than our own private bedroom, office and terrace. The common spaces are very large and comfortable. You are free to use any part of the indoors & outdoors as per your desire.

Interaction with guests

Atul and I work in the city of Chandigarh and leave the house at about 10 AM and are back by 7 PM. We will be available to help you at all times other than these. There is house staff available all the time for anything you may need.

Other things to note

Chandigarh is a half an hour drive from Aura. Since we work in Chandigarh we will be happy to guide you to places to visit etc.

We have two dogs Tofu and Fifi. The dogs stay outdoors and the cat is allowed into the house for meals. They are friendly and very therapeutic to play with.

In the summer time, one may chance across a snake or two during the entire season. Mostly they are harmless rat snakes.

We have an interesting pond in the property which is inhabited by toads, fish, a snake or two, a tortoise and had lotus leaves and flowers growing.

There is a shooting range on the property for anyone interested in taking a shot or two.

A 1000 sq. ft. studio sits on the edge of the orchard for anyone interested in painting, craft etc.

Anuja and atul's place is unique yet luxurious. They have built every part of their house themselves and it adds to the charm of their place. The sheer size of the place means that you have a lot to do within the premises. There is an art studio , swimming pool , theatre and beautiful gardens all around the property. The hosts are extremely gracious and generous. While we were swimming in the pool , delicious lemonade was bought out for us. This is just the kind of place that one wants to find on airbnb.

Atul, my husband and I are IT professionals with formal education in advertising. Other than running our company in Chandigarh, we love doing creative stuff and meeting new people.

Atul and I designed and built Aura over a period of 2.5 years. Everything in our home has been designed by us and executed on site. We love sitting with pen and paper and devising and creating things, doesn't matter if its a leather cushion or the User Interface for our next web solution.

We have two daughters who are in college in Mumbai, therefore Aura is available for guests to enjoy.

I love spending time in my studio and pottering around. In the recent past I have been painting, doing some leather cushions and some crochet bikinis :-) My next love is pottery and my classes start soon. The potters wheel and kiln are upcoming fixtures in the studio and I cant wait to start having some fun!

When we travel we like to stay with people who belong to the area we're visiting.

I'm a busy person who loves being busy... cant imagine my life without having enough to pack into each day!
