Description

Belle Vue Cottage is a secluded 160 year old, privately owned 2-storey colonial bungalow, uniquely located in a densely, green and wooded forest, in the hills of Khandala in the Western Ghats of India. The property has a distinct old-world charm, and it is rare and special, because it is a period British colonial style home.

The ivy-clad bungalow, from a bygone era, nestled among coconut trees and other age-old woodland, is owned by a Parsi-Zoroastrian family who are the direct descendants of the original owners .

Ideal for relaxation and reflection, Belle Vue sits at the trail head of several mountain paths, and is, therefore, perfectly located for long walks and life outdoors. It also offers an escape for writers, poets, artists and thinkers, and for a restful and contemplative holiday at large. But for those who want to get together and celebrate or spend a weekend, Belle Vue will accommodate you too.

Approximately, 150 kms, south of the city of Mumbai,

Approximately, 150 kms, south of the city of Mumbai, 12 kms from the town of Lonavala, and 60 kms from Poona, in the state of Maharashtra in India, Belle Vue Estate is situated at the foothills of Duke's Nose and other hills, which invite walkers and climbers.

Further, the village of Khandala has changing seasons - cool, pleasant winters, short summers and monsoons, during which the hillsides become a carpet of green.

The family on the Estate, all educated in England, and America (Cambridge and Harvard University) love to interact with travelers from around the world. Our guests, are not just guests, but are invited to share our lives with us on the Estate, and our love of nature, literature, classical music, history and the arts and humanities at large.

Location description from owner

The Maharashtra region

Khandala is an old British hill station in the Deccan Plateau, famous for its country life and long walks. Although, the area is being developed now, there are still a few untouched properties and hillsides there. Our Bungalow, Belle Vue, is chief among these.

For those who want peace and quiet, Belle Vue Cottage is a perfect destination. For those who want to go out for drives and picnics, it is an excellent spot too. And for those who want to walk, the Cottage sits at the trailhead of all the hills and climbs in Khandala, including the famous, Duke's Nose.

Further, The Della Adventure Park is just a half hour away from the Cottage. This may be fun for families with children. And for people who like to try different cuisines, there are 5 restaurants at the Park.

The town of Lonavala, famous for its Chikki is just a 20 minutes drive from the Cottage and the city of Poona is just over an hour away.

Khandala

Belle Vue Cottage sits in a heavily wooded area, just off Khandala village, and it lies at the trailhead of many treks and walks. We have people on the Estate who can take you out on treks if you wish to avail of this service. The same team can also carry supplies and take you out for picnics.

Khandala in general is sadly being developed, but Belle Vue remains just as it was 160 years ago - thickly wooded and forested. The Estate is full of birds and butterflies, and is especially beautiful in the monsoons and in the winter.

A barbecue is available in the cottage for you to enjoy and the bungalow is perfectly situated for both a quiet holiday or retreat, as well as being well-positioned for an outdoor life.

The Della Adventure Park is also just a half-hour drive from the Estate, for those wanting activity and restaurants.
