THE NEST - homestay in Coonoor, Tamilnadu, South India

It is a cosy four room home (not a house, remember) that can accommodate 18 people comfortably at any given point of time. And it is aptly called The Nest.

The dream home of a couple from Bangalore the homestay is surrounded by lush green tea estates with a view of the Raliah Forest Reserve range. It can be a homey, snug nest for the weekend (or more) for a couple or family or even a group of friends wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and all things commercial.

Two of the rooms here can be combined to form a single cottage. How cool is that!
