  • Description


    my wife and i moved to Mysore following my retirement in 2010. We have a 7.5acre farm 14km from the city centre in a picturesque setting along the River Kaveri .We have coconut trees,cocoa shrubs,mango,sapota ( chikoo), and a smaller number of custard apple,guava,amla,areca,drumstick,jamun trees as well as gulmohur,neem,tamarind,melia,teak, and other evergreens.tulsi,curry leaves also in abundance.however our efforts to grow vegetables have been largely unsuccessful. there is also an annexe with a kitchen, 2 tiny bedrooms and detached bathroom. our location is our main attraction as we are just 4km upstream from ranganathitoo bird sanctuary and there is plenty of birdlife around our farm.our place is offered on a self catering basis with limited service.Mysore is a popular hub for Yoga. Just 130km from Bangalore and offering a diversity of attractions within a 2/3 hour radius
