We invite you to our 26-year-old farmhouse Hideout – located within a two-hour drive outside Mumbai, it is a space in which we endeavor to build a community of likeminded people where all can learn, share, care for oneself, one another and for Mother Earth. Here we aim to introduce people to a lifestyle that is organic, wholesome and which binds mind, body and soul together in a happy union.
We welcome our guests to our farm house and encourage them to make the best of their stay. We wish for them to have a comfortable experience and the only agenda is to share, care and return with wonderful memories.
