With relatively close proximity to Bangalore yet in the verdant surroundings of Coorg, Som and Chethanaâs home is located in the foothills of Nilgiris. Exemplary hosts in all aspects, their home is sure to make a perfect stop over for an indelible holiday. A long drive-way to the two private pool villas is flanked by coconut and vanilla plantations on either side. The two charming villas are scenically placed with a wide green patch in front of them constructed from a natural auspicious porus rock which insulates the walls well in extreme weather.
The rooms are spacious and have large French windows for ample light. Most guests are pleasantly surprised as a private pool greets them on the right. Inspite of numerous activities which can be incorporated by Som in the itinerary, most visitors like to lounge around the pool. Both extremely affable, the hosts are happy to have guests over to their own home for meals or join them in the gassy patch in front of the house. While conversations drift through Somâs explorations in Coorg and anecdotal information on local food and life, one marvels at Chethanaâs impressive cooking and handling the children at the same time. Apart from the sumptuous food of all genres, the lemon grass tea is a special treat after meals. An idyllic farm like setting with dogs, poultry, cows and also a pony and ample greenery leaves one with a host of things to remember in this charming home.
