Hillside Chalet - Lonavala, Maharashtra

Our speciality

Perched on a hill, SaffronStays Hillside Chalet in Lonavala is a 4-bedroom wooden chalet with a private pool that overlooks the Pawna lake. Experience much-needed serenity and gorgeous austerity of the mountains from this home.

Detailed Description

A mere 15 minutes from Pawna Lake, SaffronStays Hillside Chalet is set on a hilltop overlooking a picturesque valley. A perfect vacation home, this graceful wooden chalet is the quintessential mountain retreat with its own private pool. Reminiscent of the famed Swiss chalets, this woodsy abode with breathtaking views is equally riveting.

There is an interesting story associated to the villa. The owner of the villa wanted to gift her mother the home of her dreams as a surprise. As soon as she came across this amazing location on Amarja Hills she was convinced that this was it! It was only a few days before completion of the villa that her mother showed her the exact same location from a newspaper cut out and expressed her desire to own it.
When the surprise was finally revealed and her mother visited the villa for the first time, she called it a paradise. The villa is truly no less than a paradise.

Apart from offering breathtaking views it also exhibits a sophisticated look. The wide and open interiors of this 4-bedroom home have been decked with minimal decor, giving it a very comfy vibe. 2 of the 4 bedrooms are located on the ground level while the other two are located on the upper level. Wake up to the beautiful views as the rooms open out to the surrounding valley and lake views. Although there's no air-conditioner, the constant breeze keeps the home cool throughout the year.

Spend your time catching up with friends and family over board games and enjoy the crisp weather as you sit out on the deck. Splash around in the outdoor pool which overlooks mountains and admire the stunning views of the lake and the mountains from wherever you sit!

Soothe your soul and rejuvenate your spirits as you spend your holiday with your loved ones in this rustic abode.
