Home Tour: Home Stay and Coorgi Plantations

We visited Coorg recently during its green and vibrant avatar... though you can visit it any time of the year but this time is probably the best if you like breezy winds, dewy rains, cosy bonfires and green landscapes..

For the ones visiting Coorg make sure you live at the Home stay.. Coorg offers you plethora of home stays amidst the Coffe plantations.. (p.s. the best part being that there is no cell phone network there so you are really in the earlier when holidays meant escapes..)
we stayed at this home estate at Madikeri in a 170 year old cottage built by the great grand father of the estate owner.. here take a look...

at lovely Coorg with its green plantations and cosy home stays

the view from the inside...i love the way the shadow plays inside with the contrast of sunny light outside

and here take a peek at the window of our room.. the mustard yellow wall with wooden bars atthe window kind of gives you the Goan feeling...
the garden next to this window had this lovely bench.. with my fixation on benches.. this was the perfect place.. for a romantic picture... especially with the purple flower background...
 and in the night the warm bonfire made from the boiler.. most of the plantation owners use minimum electricity and are sort of self reliant fo rmost things..

 the road to heaven is difficult but here the road was even more heavenly...
 and this ancient house couldn't be complete without a dark corner.. with hidden secrets and ghosts of the past.. hmmm sounds exciting... so visit the attic and find it out for yourself...

and watch the crawly spiders weaving the web of stories from the past...

Wish you a cosy Home stay and a cosier Home!!
