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...

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.....

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....

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 n...

SaffronStays Recommends

We recommend checking the almanac for the exact time of moon rise, on the day of your stay. Do set an alarm, wake up and watch the lake waters shimmer, as the moon rises.

About the Home

Located in Kamshet, SaffronStays L’Attitude by the Lake is an air-conditioned 7-bedroom pool villa with a lake view. Perched on the shores of Andre Dam, these eco-friendly cottages have been built with reclaimed wood, mud and exposed brick, adding a raw charm to the interiors. With bedrooms overlooking the lake, SaffronStays L’Attitude by the Lake is a divine retreat for nature lovers or for those looking for a little slice of heaven.

One can also enjoy the incredible, lakefront views from the open deck areas. The deck seems tailor-made for spending hours in quiet reflection or that lingering morning cup of coffee. Decorated in a rich palette of greens, blues and pink, the villa has a lovely collection of wooden furniture and delicate artefacts. Guests are requested not to move, misplace or damage the same. For those who prefer to be outdoors, there is a small pond and a small organic vegetable patch (to encourage healthy eating) on the property itself that guests can visit. Kamshet is more or less breezy throughout the year.
