The Experience of Rural Culture

Every now and then, people keep looking for weekend gateways where they can simply disconnect from the world and unwind. They look at places nearby to their cities yet isolated from the everyday chaotic routine. Agro Tourism is a concept where people from the urban cities can visit villages and experience the beautiful sights and sounds of rural India. Whenever we speak of agriculture, the first thing that comes to our minds is nature, the green fields, freshness and tranquility. And these are the things that today's traveler wishes to experience. In some cases, people from metro cities are keen on exploring the culture and thus take such holidays to explore. Villages still possess a cultural and historic importance. The cultural richness, local history and cuisine is something that one can experience only by visiting such places.

At 3,000 feet above sea level, Varshavan is a paradise located at Waghapur Village in the Purandar Taluka. Situated just 1 hour from Pune, this place offers a break from the everyday chaos and mundane routine. Strategically located amidst the lush greenery of the village, Varshavan assures an experience of a lifetime. It's not just a holiday destination but the retreat of nourishment for the body and mind. Varshavan's purpose is to nurture and promote the concept of agro tourism. Varshavan has been made to provide travels with the real experience of a stay in the village. From the accommodation and the various activities, this is the place of fun & enjoyment.

We believes that the urban traveler often needs a break from the city life and thus decided to cater to this need in a unique way by making agro tourism easily accessible. From the serene surroundings to the pristine environment and from the rich culture to the historical significance, Varshavan is the place to experience the authentic side of Maharashtra.
