Fagunia Farmstay-Entire Villa
About Fagunia Farmstay
Literally handbuilt stone by stone by a Kumaoni farmer and now lovingly rebuilt and expanded by a Pahadi-Telugu couple, Fagunia Farmstay is a special mountain villa to experience and an epitome of subtle charms and understated luxury. With two spacious suites and two independent bedrooms, the sprawling villa is perfect for a family or a large group wanting complete private access to the 2 acre farm estate. Surrounded by a beautiful pine forest and a seasonal waterfall on two sides, farms on another side and with spectacular views of the mountains of Pangot and Nainital in front, we are sure you will fall in love with the place like we did. Nestled in a quiet little hamlet and accessed by a beautiful but adventurous drive through an enchanting forest that is full of birds and old British era arched bridges over waterfalls, this little piece of heaven is about 15 km before Nainital.
This is a perfect place for that discerning traveller who is looking for something off the beaten track, literally. Go on long walks in the surrounding sun dappled forests in search of colourful birds and butterflies. Lend a helping hand on the farm. Observe the unhurried pace of village life. Write your next great book or come up with a life changing idea. Or just find a quiet corner, put up your feet, stare at the beautiful vista, relax and slowly let go of all your worries. Fagunia Farmstay is an oasis of bliss and peace amidst verdant greens and earthy browns. The villa is situated on a verdant 2 acre farm estate with banj, pomegranate, kafal, malta, lime, bhimal, peach, apricot and other trees in abundance.
The sprawling stone villa, which is built across three levels, has two independent suites with ensuite bathrooms and two independent bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms along with a common kitchen and an al fresco dining area. There are also extensive garden and other outdoor relaxation areas with private nooks and niches where you can leave the world behind and imbibe the peace and quiet. Each of the suites and rooms is specially curated around a theme and luxuriously appointed and furnished with handpicked antique furniture, furnishings and art pieces to make your stay comfortable and memorable. The villa also comes with many eco-friendly and special features such as solar water heating, sustainable waste management, farm to table produce for cooking and more, which we hope will enhance your stay even further. Hope your stay at this labor of love of ours will help you make memories for a lifetime.

Things to Note
- This is our dream home which we worked on for years to give it its present shape. While we have done our very best to equip the villa with the best fittings and furnishings to provide a luxury hotel like comfort we request you to be considerate and treat it like your home and not as a hotel. Given its remote location and close proximity to nature, there may be inconveniences that you may face but rest assured we will do our best to offer you a memorable experience.
- Our meals are served as per a fixed menu and at designated times in the common al fresco dining area. Our food is a blend of local Pahari cuisine with northern and southern Indian cuisine influences.
- Lunch on the day of checkin is not included unless requested by guests. Please confirm a day before your checkin date if lunch on day of checkin is required. This lunch will be a simple vegetarian meal.
- Since we are an eco-friendly homestay located in close proximity to protected forests we request you to carry back whatever plastic waste you bring with you as we have no non-biodegradable waste management system on site.

- We do not maintain any stocks of packaged food items like bottled water, soft drinks, snacks etc nor do we encourage their consumption.
- Do note that the village where the villa is located is a bit remote and has only a couple of basic shops which stock bare essentials. The nearest town market is in Bajoon which is 5 km away while the nearest city market is in Nainital which is about 15 km away so please pack accordingly.

- Please note that you will need to walk just under a kilometre down a village path from the parking area to the villa and the villa itself is not accessible friendly so if you or anyone in your group has mobility challenges then we do not recommend booking with us.
