Detailed Description

The sound of crickets chirping, a sun-bird singing and gentle lapping of water are what you wake up to at SaffronStays Girigyot, the 3 bedroom rustic chic farmhouse, nestled in a humongous estate that you should be escaping to. Away from the din and noise of Pune, just an hour out from Chandni Chowk lies hidden in a forest, a home so welcoming, you will never want to leave!

Located on a picturesque 100 acre campus at Male, close to the backwaters of Bhatghar dam near Pune, one of the key attractions is that it is in close proximity to Rajgad Fort that attracts lots of tourists over the weekend.

With a traditional Tulsi plant in the courtyard, raw stone walls and gabled interiors, the earthy home is sure to add more warmth to your holiday, after our caretakers and cooks have pampered you enough.

For the adventurous souls, activities like rifle shooting, archery and hiking are bound to keep you occupied. And if you're lucky, you may even get to spot a leopard around (We take safety measures against predators, so don't you worry!). For history lessons at your doorstep you can trek to Raigad Fort or visit Bhatghar Dam, Maharashtra's oldest dam.

We know you're going to call in your day relaxing in the courtyard with nothing but twinkling stars in a clear sky above you, and holiday that will have invigorated you for a long time.
