Our spacious, fully furnished, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments overlook our expansive gardens — with plum trees laden in summer, beds of exotic dahlias, sunflowers and hollyhocks, golden orioles and elusive paradise flycatchers flitting in and out of fig and cherry trees. The rooms are all equipped with all modern amenities, cedarwood floors, handcrafted furniture, carved wooden ceilings and locally woven Kashmiri textiles. The Jhelum river, flows past the front garden and provides an idyllic setting for a peaceful holiday and beautiful nature walks by villages and orchards.

Stay for as long as you please, a day, a week or more. Based on your holiday plans we would be happy to advise you on an ideal duration for your stay with us. We welcome retreats and workshops.

We only supply breakfast and recommend a list of local restaurants or that you use our fully equipped modern kitchens to prepare or heat other meals.
