Fifteen minutes from the coastal town of Alleppey, can transport you
into a whole new world cris-crossed by narrow canals and winding
water ways. Located at a gentle bend of the slow flowing river
Pampa….on it’s lower waterfront at Nedumudy. This heritage home,
with its rich traditional architecture imbued with timeless charm
was raised over a hundred years ago.
For those en-famille, this is the place to enjoy the luxury of being
truly alone when time acquires a meditative quality determining
one's attitude to the day ahead. The structure is enveloped in
greenery and is sympathetic to its environs with a generous spread
of spice and herbal plants (nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper, clove,
cashewnut and coffee).
In the charming quietude of this home, you may laze away your
evening under the leafy canopy of a guava tree, which stands
sentinel in the amoeba shaped pool. You hear the rustle of the
leaves as the cool evening breeze plays with them-Muse enough for a
poet…Float, if you choose, on a bamboo raft in the encircling placid
waters of the pool from where you can watch the residual brilliance
illuminating the evening sky after sunset. It creates a relaxed
ambience that helps you to unwind.
The garden stretches into the beckoning River Pampa. The backyard is
a light- filled sitting area with an abundance of green, and
presents the appearance of a covered courtyard.. The mango tree
offers a magnificent bower over a fish pool beyond where you could
relax with a fishing rod.
