This village situated at an idyllic distance from Mumbai and Pune offers 15 acres of farm stay nestled in the hills of Karjat.
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” said Thomas Merton famously. Nothing describes The Art Village more aptly than this. India’s first earth-built centre for all things artistic and creative. Relax and rejuvenate, Learn to unlearn, connect to disconnect.
An ideal day at the Art Village begins at dawn at the lakeside. Revel in the din of our feathered friends. Over 15 bird species and over 30 different migratory birds flock here, two-different species of Kingfishers to Ibis and the Sunbird, amongst them The lakeside provides perfect setting to reflect and meditate. Take a walk, do Yoga or be one with nature. Have freshly cooked meals. Sit back and reflect or participate in one of the many workshops.
Treat yourself to a refreshing bath in the sky showers, with the golden rays dancing on your skin. All meals at the Earth Cafe are ‘saatvik’ and made fresh every time. Come along to the nearby chowk village, as we source our produce, learn to cook local cuisines with our staff. Pedal your blues on a bicycle around the village as you explore the surroundings. Get amazed as you lose track of time over a trek in the winters. One can mould clay or learn how to make a ‘Linocut’ print, help us deseed and plant some local trees. The recreation centre is equipped with a small library of books – art related, non-fiction and board games
Great for weekend getaways and to pursue a hobby. An art retreat, learn yantra mandala painting, Raku ware or terracotta pottery, paper-making, functional art and farming. Truly a global village, artists from across the country and the world co-exist and get inspiration here. If you want kids to connect with nature, appreciate a non digital set up, this is the place you need to be.
Someone who is looking for luxury in the hills. Not apt for small kids as entertainment is limited to books, bicycles, nature walks and board games. And this a non AC place. So, people who can’t live below 20deg should avoid the art village!
