Latitude is a hidden gem near Kamshet, Maharashtra. The location and space (in and around the bungalow) are high points. The interiors are beautifully and tastefully designed. The place has some lovely furniture too. The photos on saffronstays website accurately depict Lattitude. Ratan and his assistants looked after us well. Ratan cooked up some decent food. Nothing fancy but tasty. The tandoori chicken and the dry chilly chicken are must tries. The place is ideal for two-three families (say 6-7 people). We were seven of us plus an infant (who probably had the most fun). There are two rooms on the ground floor and a large space on the first floor with an en suite bathrooms. There is a large living and dining area. The balcony on the ground floor overlooking the garden, a small pond and the lake some distance away was everyone’s favourite area in the house. There is also a balcony on the first floor. All rooms are air conditioned. So is the living area. However, given we were there in the peak of summer the acs (especially on the first floor and the living area) were expectantly struggling to keep up with the heat. Evenings were pleasant though. All in all, a lovely getaway 2-3 hours from Mumbai. Not a lot to do around but look up Kamshet on tripadvisor for some fun activities. We walked around a bit and drove to Dukes Lonavla for some beer and snacks but otherwise preferred chilling at home. To enjoy your stay, I would recommend booking the entire place. If you’re...read more
Words can't express how impressed we are with this property. Absolute privacy with the most non-interfering and yet so attentive staff (I don't know how they manage that).. We had the best possible get away thanks to saffron stays.. it is not often that online pictures turn out to be the same in real.. however this place is as good as it looks on the website... and from what we hear they actually listen and act upon every suggestion in reviews.. weather it was the mosquito sprays to take care of bugs or the candy / cookie jars for random cravings.. they're listening. One suggestion from my side, The plumbing in bathrooms was a little cloggy/leaky, not that it affected the hygiene or the neatness of the place , it was noticed by the group.. also the pond/water body in the garden can be a wonderful swimming pool.. but that's just my personal indulgence. . Keep it up and we'll be back soon enough.....read more
My friends and I stayed at this property during monsoons 2017 for 2 nights and we had the most relaxed holiday till date. The villa is beautifully done up and is located very far away from the noise of the highways and cities. Overlooking a lake the villa is the perfect destination for a relaxing weekend gateway. The care taker 'Ratan' and his family took good care of us and cooked delicious food. The property rates are slightly on the steep side but once in a while it is ok to spend the money for some peace away from cities....read more
What started of as a random search on Facebook turned out to be the best weekend with cousins! L'ATTITUDE is one of the most beautifully designed homes I've ever seen!

I'm sure to recommend this place to my friends and family! PS : I wish I owned a place like this ! Couldn't contain my jealousy :) Cheers! ...read more
L'attitude is a lovely bungalow homestay near Kamshet / Kanhe village which is close to Lonavla (~25 min). We were situated on the ground floor room adjacent to the TV hall. The rooms were very tastefully done and had all required amenities. I loved the look and feel of the place. There's a porch / verandah section which overlooks the lake and lotus pond, which is also very breezy during the evenings. The lawn near the lotus pond was well maintained and is a great place for an evening drink or just quiet time, with the lovely wind adding to the charm of this already beautiful place. Service The caretakers of the place Ratan and family made us comfortable and took care of our needs. They were unobtrusive and service oriented. Ratan is a good cook and makes simple yet tasteful dishes. Location and Amenities The location is away from the hustle and bustle of the city and even Lonavla, so ideal if you are looking for a quiet time. There are no entertainment or other facilities near the site. There is a white water rafting site nearby (Camp water's edge), but they take only large groups. The paragliding facility is at-least 45 min away from the location. Best and Least My wife and myself, loved the peaceful location and tastefully done up décor in the rooms - it was simply excellent. It would be good to have a map or directions laid out, as the google maps also couldn't help in determining the place. Signboards indicating L'attitude from Kanhe village entry would also help....read more
