Make holiday rental apartment or property in India your home away from home

India truly is dazzling. It is impossible not to fall in love with India, almost as soon as you arrive, as there is colour and vibrancy in almost every aspect of life. The spectacular wild landscapes, indescribably beautiful national monuments and shear friendliness of the people make holidays to India absolutely unforgettable, and it is easy to see why so many of those who travel to India can never bring themselves to leave. There are enough sights to see from a holiday home or apartment in India to last you for ever, from the iconic views of the Taj Mahal to the world famous beaches of Goa, the amazing religious festivals to the awe-inspiring mountain scenery.

Places to visit on holiday to India

South India, or the Deccan, encompasses the states of Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Andhra, Kerala and Karnataka. The landscapes are truly diverse, from the beaches of the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean to the huge mountains of the Ghats. However, it is the cities of Bangalore, Madurai and Chennai, the City of Temples, that draw the largest crowds. South India is the most popular region with tourists, partially due to the flamboyance of the cities, but also because the best beaches in India lie on the edges of the Deccan Peninsula.

North India is a hotbed of culture. India’s capital, Delhi, lies within the bounds of North India, as do the unbelievable landscapes of the Himalayas and the sacred sources of the Ganges, meaning that this part of India has shaped the course of Indian history and culture. The forts and palaces of North India are absolutely incredible, and you will no doubt find yourself exploring many of them from a holiday home or rental apartment in India.

West India includes the states of Gujarat, Goa and Maharashtra, with some of the most amazing natural parks, sand beaches and ornate temples you could imagine. Far from the break-neck paces of Indian cities elsewhere, west India is a place to truly unwind and relax, either on the famous beaches, huge Buddhist Caves and traditional festivals.

East India is the most unexplored and wild region in India. Traditional tribe cultures still live on strong in East India, and you shall hear many dialects being spoken. Nature really has pulled out all the stops in East India, providing landscapes that you can only imagine before your arrive at your self catering holiday home in India. The perfect combination of people, nature, culture and colour means that you will find it very hard to leave East India at the end of your holiday.

Weather in India

The climate in India varies dramatically from region to region. In general, the hot wet monsoon season starts around June time, having completely swept through the country by July. November until mid February are probably the best times to travel to India, as hottest temperatures reach around 40°C, which is certainly hot enough for most of us from Europe! If you like it even hotter, the period from April until June is when India’s climate really gets warm.

Travel to India

There are now more cheap flights to India than ever before leaving the UK. The main airports in India include Mumbai (BOM), Delhi (DEL), Calcutta and Chennai (MAA). Although there are a great range of flights to India from the UK, British Airways>/a> are probably the best place to start your search for cheap flights to India.

Rented private apartment in alor grande hotel Candolin

4 of 5
The apartment had everything we needed from a holiday let. it was clean and bedding and towels etc changed weekly, it was a little tired on the décor side but still of a good standard for India. The complex its self had a lovely pool and the restaurant was of a good standard and one of the cheaper places to eat, on the negative side a lot of the local population held seminars there and it was a little livelier than some would like it. We would definitely consider booking again. The agents at Abracasa were really professional especially Sarah who made our holday stress free booking taxi,s from the airport and back nothing to much trouble well done to the team.

5 of 5
This was our tenth visit to Arpora. We had been previously been using an apartment on the outskirts of Arpora but this became very noisy after the road was improved and it became a major traffic route at night. It was also some distance from the centre of Arpora which meant using a scooter at night to go out to eat. We therefore looked for another apartment that was nearer the centre of the town but in a quite location and selected Villa Vera. Villa Vera consists of about six blocks of twelve apartments that surround a beautiful swimming pool set in a well kept garden. The complex is situated about 100 metres from the access road to a large top-quality hotel, and is surrounded by a variety of different trees. There is 24 hour security and plenty of covered parking space. As it is some distance from the road, it is quiet and there are no noisy restaurants nearby. However, Villa Vera is also within easy walking distance of the best restaurants in Arpora, so there is no requirement for transport when going out to eat at night. Apartment D2 is to the rear of the building, so does not face out on to the pool. The view from the balcony is to the rear of the hotel complex which obscured to a large extent by attractive trees. We found it to be very private and peaceful and spent several afternoons out there reading books, enjoying the sunshine. The apartment was newly decorated in light colours and the furniture had been refurbished. The kitchen was small but had a full size cooker and a large fridge freezer, and was equipped with a whole selection of saucepans and kitchen tools. This is important to me as we always have breakfast in our apartment and often make our own lunch, and occasionally dinner. I especially like being able to prepare local fruit and vegetables and to cook fish or prawns from the market. There was also a washing machine that we found useful. I would rate the kitchen and the equipment highly. I would also comment that we only saw one or two ants or silverfish during a four week stay. The sofas were new or refurbished and very comfortable. The TV was good and there was also a DVD player which we used a lot. The cane furniture on the balcony was very comfortable too. The double bed was actually two single beds close together, so was large and very comfortable and there were plenty of sheets and pillow cases. The AC was quiet and worked well. The bathroom had a large shower cubicle and the water pressure was high, so it was a joy to...
