The Singh family have created a unique rural Indian getaway steeped in history, relaxation and a whole lot of heart. After 3 nights I didn’t want to leave! The hosts, so warm and generous with their time & energy and the setting simply surreal. Everything has character and a story to fascinate.
Some quick facts:
Activities – This is the perfect place to wind down, write, read, paint or just simply get away from it all. If you like visiting local village markets, be sure to check in advance what day the market falls on and try and coincide your travel dates. Oh and you can wonder and get lost to your hearts content in the surrounding ravines (watch the movie ‘Bandit Queen’ before you arrive if you’re into local stories).
Communication – Emails were always replied to promptly to assist our pre-arrival questions and planning.
Facilities / Cleanliness – Spotless. Bathrooms are tailored to suit the western traveller comfortably.
Food – Three hot meals in the daily rate and can be adapted to one’s taste as required (eg. My travel companion had been sick from our previous stop and Padmini ensured suitable foods and liquids were available to aid her recovery)
Getting there – probably the trickiest piece of the puzzle if you don’t have your own driver but all the more the adventure getting there! We came via train and then arranged with Padmini to have a driver collect us for the remaining 4 hour drive through the countryside.
Rooms - Charming, say no more.
Hosts – offered us the perfect balance of attention and space.
