A Rustic Retreat Beckons
Splashing about in a sparkling river, stealing sweet berries off bushes, chasing after cows through endless fields of paddy, and watching fascinated as the milk-woman did her magic – remember those carefree summer holidays spent with family at your grandfather’s farm all those years ago?
With Halli Mane, that is exactly the world we want to recreate. Just 60km from Bangalore, India, have built a complete village experience on a 25 acre farm.
It is imagined as the ideal getaway for families and nature lovers looking to get off the fast lane, go back to the basics and feel the connection to nature. The great outdoors holds promise for team-building activities as well.
Slice of Rural life
Space, quiet and natural beauty are in no short supply at Halli Mane. And guests get to enjoy this in the privacy of large, individual houses.
Just as in any village street, quaint mud huts are arranged in neat, welcoming rows. The earth feels cool to bare feet under the tiled roof, and windows open into stunning views of vast fields and sun-kissed hills.
Built by local artisans using traditional design and materials, the ‘thotti mane‘ will provide every comfort, without compromising on authenticity.
One can’t be blamed for believing that the air smells fresher here or the water seems sweeter. The food will definitely be tastier – made on traditional firewood stoves from vegetables guests can help forage for.
When not in the raagi fields or the fruit orchards, guests can explore local schools and markets with a local guide. The more adventurous travellers can treat themselves to walks, treks and nights under starry skies. They can get their hands dirty with pottery or relax with a traditional massage.
Halli Mane has been imagined with something for everyone. What’s common is a way of life where connection to nature, culture and community is strong.
Halli Mane brings to you a cuisine from the homes of rural Karnataka with a variety of preparations made from the organic produce grown there itself, the most important cereals being Ragi and jawar. The buffet offers a “NAATI” assortment or preparations. A sumptuous organic multi course meal from fresh salads to local sweets provides the wholesome experience.
There is a common dining area where all meals / tea / snacks are served at specific timings. The water in the dining area is filtered.
