Come experience the life of an Indian family. I speak Hindi, English and French, my wife Geeta speaks English and we are very open to other cultures. Bet with our daughter (4 years) we're always happy to welcome you into our home. We are located just behind the City Palace in Udaipur, in the heart of the most beautiful sights of the city.
5 kilometres from Udaipur is the Monsoon Palace. The palace is set at a height of 340 m and provides an exceptional view of the city. But it's most popular offering is the view of a beautiful sunset.
Mount Abu is Rajasthan's only hill station. It is popular amongst families and young couples who are looking for a quiet getaway or simply escaping from Rajasthan's scorching sun. Here, people usually spend their time boating on Nakki lake or visiting Dilwara temple
Udaipur's City Palace is arguably one of the most majestic palaces in India. Here, one after the after, you come across splendid quarters bedecked with exquisite architecture and mirror-work. The Surya Chopar, Rajya Angan, Manak Mahal, Moti Mahal (pearl palace), Chini Mahal (ceramic palace) are just a few of its treasures. With breathtaking views of the lake and marvellous architecture, the palace is not just a popular tourist destination, but also a coveted location for private events hosted by the world's who's who.
The world-famous Lake Palace sits proudly on the Jag Niwas Island in the middle of Lake Pichola. Originally, the palace served as a summer retreat for the royal family, but now it stands as one of India's most celebrated hotels. A lovely boat-ride on Lake Pichola is the only way to reach the palace. But boats that take you to Jag mandir and around the lake are also available every hour. Only guests of the hotel or people visiting for dinner/lunch are allowed inside now. A meal here can cost up to Rs. 5000 per person. A boat ride of Lake Pichola costs Rs. 300 for adults and Rs. 150 for children. The boats operates from 9 am to 5 pm (Timings subject to change)
Some of Rajasthan's most beautiful temples can be found just a short drive from Udaipur. Ranakpur, Nathdwara and Eklingji are all revered amongst locals but are rapidly gaining popularity outside Rajasthan as well. The Ranakpur temple is a peaceful house of worship and a beautiful exemplar of traditional Jain architecture. Here, guests can also enjoy a communal lunch, where an array of rich, vegetarian dishes is served for just Rs. 20! On the way back to Udaipur one will come across the usually packed Krishna temple, Nathdwara and Eklingji, a composition of 108 temples.
Within the Garden Hotel, one can enjoy a traditional lunch followed by a stroll through the Vintage Collection of Classic Cars Museum. Here, you can admire vintage cars that once belonged to the Maharajahs of Udaipur but were later donated by His Royal Highness to the museum for public viewing.
Hathipole is recommended for bargain-hunters. But if one is looking for a lot of variety and superior quality, not to mention steeper prices, the city center should suffice
Through enigmatic cultural shows and quirky puppet-performers one comes across entertainment, the Rajasthani way. On a cool evening, puppets amuse you with “magic shows” and folklore. They're followed by dancers from the hinterland, who will astonish you by dancing on broken glass all the while balancing up to nine pots on their heads
Visit a village
Shilpgram (Craftsmen's Village) is a functional complex depicting India's diversity, through arts and crafts. The 70-acre village is set amongst the foothills of the Aravalis. Here, visitors can shop for traditionally produced goods and also learn about an average Indian villager's life. In winters, a vivacious crafts' festival fills the village with joy and gaiety

Without a doubt the best homestay we have experienced! Tarun and Geeta are so warm and friendly and you instantly feel completely at home here. Really lovely house and room. Tarun is very knowledgeable about udaipur and the rest of India and offers advice without being pushy. Geeta cooks the best food and she will teach you how to cook too. We had such a brilliant time with the family especially playing with their two children, Pujan and Yuvraj, who are so much fun. It was amazing and we couldn't have asked for better experience. It is true, you do leave as friends!
We had such a wonderful stay with Tarun and his wife and kids. They made us feel right at home and are a pleasure to be around. The kids are full of energy and so much fun!
Breakfast every morning was delicious, as were the many cups of chai tea. The room, including the bathroom, is clean, comfortable and just like the photos represent. We had no discomforts whatsoever. The location of the house is in the perfect spot in Udaipur as we walked everywhere (city palace, restaurants, shops) and never needed a rickshaw. We are grateful to have met this family and hope to see them again one day. Highly recommended!
It was awesome staying with Tarun, Geeta and their family. They were super friendly and generous, and truly welcomed me as part of their family. They invited me into their gangaur celebration, which was a great experience. I ended up staying longer than planned, because it was so nice to stay there. Their house is very clean and spacious, and conveniently located near everything in udaipur. The room was comfortable and cozy, and had an attached bathroom which was great. Geeta makes delicious food, and ate most of my meals there, which was awesome and way better than anything from a restaurant. This family is awesome and will go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful stay. I would recommend staying at their home to anyone!
This was an ideal place to stay in Udaipur: in a quiet alley away from the noise and bustle of the street, yet just steps away from Bhattiyani Chouhtta's busy traders, chai stalls, restaurants and other delights, and only a short walk from the City Palace and Lake Picchola. Tarun and Gita were wonderful hosts, and it was a real pleasure to stay with them and their family. I would recommend it to anyone.
It was wonderful to live with Geeta and her kidsduring 4 days. They are very nice and we could speak about lot of things and have a real contact with indian culture; it s realy best than every guest house and hotel ! we want go one time!
