I stayed at Tranquille for 4 nights along with my family. The place is ideal to spend some peaceful time way from hustle and bustle of city. The place is totally calm and surrounded by greenery.

About the neighbourhood
Wake up to the merry chirping of the birds or have a lazy lie-in; watch the sun rise or set over the beautiful lake; cycle around the place, discovering shady nooks and ideal picnic spots or become an avid bird-watcher; spend a relaxed day fishing in our ponds or reading a fascinating novel sitting in the verandah; play with Frisbees with friends or family or a rigorous game of cricket; plant crops or plough the land; enjoy cooking a delicious meal surrounded by nature, or have a special dinner by the campfire, strumming your guitar; or simply do nothing… lie back, star-gaze and dream… You are free to spend your days as you like! This could be your unique holiday on an idyllic farm! House Rules: We understand it is a holiday. However, please follow these simple rules: 1. Smoking a...
