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.

Our experience staying at this villa was awesome. Payal was a fabulous host and made sure everything

4 of 5
Our experience staying at this villa was awesome. Payal was a fabulous host and made sure everything was taken care of, in addition to her checking in with us everyday to make sure there were no issues. The only downside was that one day there was no electricity, but this was due to some work happening so there were power cuts in the entire village. Besides this, the villa is beautifully maintained and the decor is unique. You can tell that lots of love has gone into creating this artistic space! Also, the location of the villa is fab! There are many, many restaurants and bars nearby - even some within walking distance! The only thing I would say is that it needs a little bit more lighting, but maybe this is because we couldn’t find the switches and there was a short circuit. This is easily fixable though, and Payal was more than helpful! I would definitely recommend this and will be booking the same place for my next Goa trip! Thanks Payal for a lovely family experience and being so kind for early check-in and check-out!

Great stay

5 of 5
Had a wonderful stay at the property. It does everything that it says. The house is well kitted out with everything you need, first aid kit, sowing kit, nicknacks like sun cream, after sun, insect repellands etc...... The house is located about a 10 minute walk from the town and, tuc tucs are available to take you around (although we did hire a scooter). Keep an ear out (old fashioned toot toot horn) for the bread delivery lad on his bike at about 0730 ish each morning, you will need to go out and flag him down. There is WI-FI available at the house, you need to pay William downstairs for its use as it’s his data you will be using but it’s very cheap. For eating, the hideaway we found was the best but, there are loads of others, you will be spoilt for choice. You must try the fast food stall next to Marie hall which sets up at about 1700 onwards. If you fancy a local Indian breakfast, try the masala dosas at the cafeteria at Marie hall, next to atm machines, good fruit and veg stalls there as well. Sandra and William downstairs have also been a great help, Sandra made us a delicious lunch the day before we left and, she also knocked us up an omelette breakfast. On a final note.......you are going to love this place :)
