About the neighbourhood
We are located in a peaceful neighborhood just a kilometer from the market. The house itself is surrounded by trees and is perfect to just relax. Wilson point (where you can catch a gorgeous sunrise and sunset) is just a ten minute walk from Monte Bella.
Getting around
The Mahabaleshwar market is a short 15 minute walk from Monte Bella. Wilson point is just under ten minute walk. Most people do visit Mahabaleshwar with their own transport, however taxis are available near the nus stand and a trip to our house is usually charged at INR. 150 one way.
