Detailed Description

Located in the beautiful valley of Panchgani, SaffronStays Dulwich Cottage is surrounded by natural serene beauty. Two coniferous trees and bougainvillaea flowers flank the driveway and a private garden lies right next to the home.

The brick and stone facade, as well as the red and white coloured walls of the bungalow, will remind you of the quintessential holiday homes in the misty hill-stations. Every inch of this home is reminiscent of simpler times. The marble flooring, the delicate chandeliers adorning the dining area, the dotted tiles in the bathrooms, the bamboo chairs; everything. Every inch, every piece will transport you to olden times. The bungalow houses 2 suites and 2 bedrooms which are spread over two levels. The suite located on the ground level offers easy access to elder guests.

Relax in one of the four cosy bedrooms or gather around in the living area for some late-night fun sessions with your group. Soak in the sunshine and breathe in the crisp, fresh air from the lovely deck or from the courtyard. Go for a leisure walk in the private garden that borders the property or spend your evenings by the warmth of the bonfire.

If you wish to venture out, you could walk to the picturesque Parsi Point or go shopping in the Panchgani market which is just 5 minutes from the home. Nature lovers can visit the nurseries that are located near the home and not to forget, go strawberry picking during season time!
