Hello Friends!
We are the Bharucha family, proud inheritors of Themi Villa, in Coonoor - Nilgiris, one of the 4 UNESCO world network of biosphere reserves in India. This house has been restored with much love and affection in the fond memory of Mr. Mherwanji Eduji Bhumgara, (Great grand father to Darius), the Chief Engineer of Coonoor Municipality, who bought this house in 1948 as the 11th owner !
Born Parsi Zoroastrians, we respect all religions of the world and are happy to meet people of different countries & cultures and to share ours with them.
It was such a pleasure for us to share this cute little home with our friends that they suggested we convert it into a "home stay" for others as well! Which we did and named it, what else?..... 'Great Grand fathers Holiday home-stay' !
We welcome guests who are not looking for 'just another hotel' to stay in, but for something more personal - Parsi hospitality! We trust that our guests will use the contents of the house with the care it deserves so that others can enjoy it too. Being environmentally conscious, we would love to compare notes and ideas on the issue.
We undertake to do all that we can to make our guests feel satisfied, comfortable and happy without over stepping into their privacy ! We hope they will recommend us to their friends and keep coming back themselves.
Looking forward to serving you and wishing you a happy holiday and a very safe Journey to the Niligiris !
