Nestled in a lush tea garden, Raven's Nest is a guest house surrounded by silver oak trees and flowering plants. The lawns are the perfect place to breathe in the pristine Nilgiri Hills air, while the dappled shade of the deck is a cozy corner to curl up with a book. Its recycled teak wood floors and doors have stories to tell of faraway lands. The three-bedrooms with orthopedic mattresses will help rid you off your big city stress.
This bright-and-cheerful Bed-and-breakfast, which somebody called a birdâ€™s nest, is perched on the Aracombai road, in Tanthnaad, just off Pandian Park in Kotagiri. The deck and large picture windows give you a spectacular view of the valleys and hills of Kotagiri and beyond.
Surrounded by tea bushes, Chalet Mon Ami is 5-kilometers from Kotagiri town and a two hour drive from Coimbatore airport.
Known for their aromatic high-altitude teas the world over, the Nilgiri Hills are rarely recognized as the fruit and vegetable basket of South India. More than half of the acreage under cultivation in these ‘Blue Hills’ is covered with beetroots, cabbage, potatoes along with indigenous millets and greens. And today, like us at Raven’s Nest, many of the farmers are switching to the centuries old ways of natural farming.
Join us in our week-long, hands-on cooking course where we use organic ingredients and the rays of the sun to demystify and simplify Indian food for you.
