Stone Villa Homestay, located in Karnataka, India, 60 Kms from Bangalore International Airport on Kanakapura Road, offers a uniquely intimate vacation experience in a retreat designed to recreate the mysteries of a land lost in time. It is neither a resort nor a hotel. It combines the comforts and ambiance of a warm, ancestral home, with services and features of a resort. Lush green lawns, manicured gardens, bursts of flowers, and mature, shady trees create an idyllic setting that induces a sense of blissful relaxation, where every wish is anticipated and answered by discreet staff.
Serenity and calm quickly envelopes you as you cross the fort-like walls surrounding. Dull lanterns flicker here and there, as the evening quiet descends, gently interrupted by the gurgling sound of water pouring into the Kalyani – the swimming pool — a stepped pool. It feels like grandma’s home!
Stone Villa Homestay – The Courtyard
Traditionally the courtyard nurtured the family; children played, women gossiped, little girls giggled when the older men politicized.
Grannies narrated stories of life and lesson; for the open sky and the cheerful birds to listen while the ‘young adults’ mocked.
Here is where generations grew up, matured, led lives of their own and finally succumbed into eternal sanctity.
Wide-open spaces, columns of stone, ancient Kalyani pool, generous walkways, manicured lawns dotted with flowering tropical trees and shrubs, an environment which re creates the mysteries of a land lost in time.
The tranquil surroundings and the authentic ambience of the ancestral home creates an ideal weekend getaway for the city-bred.
Guests can unwind by exploring the watchtower in one corner of the fort, take a dip in the pool,go for short hikes on the country side, enjoy traditional games, or just laze around on a hammock amidst perfectly manicured lawns.
The green and traditional environment of the venue also caters to corporate clients, family gatherings and weddings.
