An organic farmstay near Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu
Located at the foothills of the Western Ghats just a few minutes from the Isha Yoga Center is the family home turned farmstay Deco Villa.
Set in the midst of 12 acres of land, most of which is organic farm, Devo Villa offers three large ensuite bedrooms that are perfect for a quiet getaway or for a get-together of a small group of family or friends.
Deco Villa is part of Ecorganic Stays, a platform that offers a curated network of homestays and promises a standardised level of quality in all aspects from cleanliness and facilities to services and experiences offered.
While Deco Villa is just a 30 minute drive away from the city of Coimbatore, the quiet farmstay feels like it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Western Ghats provide a striking back ground, while the surrounding farmland with its coconut groves is a fine example of the fertile plains of the state. Be prepared for splendid sunrises and sunsets and a sunrise walk in the property is highly recommended.
In the farm you can try your hand at farming, milking of cows or even driving a tractor! The farm produces much of the ingredients that go into the making of the meals here, from milk and vegetables to even meats. Everything is organic.
The rooms here are furnished keeping simplicity and elegance in mind and the rooms have the sturdy wood furniture, including wardrobes and beds that are typical of traditional Tamil homes. You can look forward to authentic idli-sambar-chutney combinations for breakfast and delicious Tamil vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes during the other meals.
The Isha Yoga Center is nearby and makes for a great day trip. The Nilgiris with destinations like Ooty, Conoor and Kotagiri are a short drive away, as are rural getaways like Pollachi. A short stay in Deco Villa could be the much-needed lazy break in a Nilgiris-Pollachi circuit.
Price: 5,000 (double occupancy)
