We were on a family vacation from 3rd November to 5th November 2018 at Citrus county. We arrived a bit late, having stopped over at Ludhiana for shopping for woollens. All along Harkirat was in touch with us to ensure our well being and that we didn't have any problem navigating our way.
Harkirat, Beeya and his entire family n friends including the lovable labbies Simba the Saint and Kaiser the rogue are the perfect company for the citrus county setting. We were welcomed with a bonfire to Ward off the chill.
We stayed in the tents which are very comfortable with clean bathrooms and a spacious bedroom. The food is cooked as per your requirement and was delicious.We enjoyed the fresh fruit juices.
We went for an early morning walk next day to the citrus orchard laden with tangerine..yours for the taking. After breakfast we took the village walk, and were lucky to get a chance to visit the local Mela....must say Beeya was very well informed about this and other shopping information that we needed.
We drove to Harkirat farm 10 min drive from Citrus country for lunch in the open...a lovely experience. In the evening we went for a tractor ride and wound up the day around the bonfire n dinner bonding with Harkirat,his family and other guests.
A wonderful stay in the heart of a village in Punjab...the place to go to if you need a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of your city life.
We came back carrying awesome memories of a beautiful vacation. The fragrance of citrus and raat ki raani still lingers.
The owner host makes quite sure that you are comfortable and cared for in this charming oasis of fruit trees and flowering borders. A trip by tractor around the estate, followed by a sun downer and dinner + digestif by a log fire makes for the perfect day. The en suite ‘tents’ are well appointed albeit permitting the sounds of the night from dusk ‘til dawn. Recommended
Amazing experience! Well furnished tents with provision of hot water and heater in the room.Unlimited cold press fresh orange juice.Delicious Indian home cooked food and personal care and attention. All the right ingredients for a memorable trip.
We stayed in the farmhouse. The room was spacious and comfortable. A lovely bathroom, lots of hot water and fluffy towels (a rarity in India!)
Outside was a beautiful dining area, wood fires keeping the evening chill at bay. The food was delicious, freshly cooked and plentiful.
Also a well stocked bar as a bonus!
Will be returning!
Such a glamorous and fun holiday! As part of a tour group of 22 Australians, we arrived by bus near midnight from Amritsar after visiting the Golden Temple. Very very cold night but we were welcomed by toasty warm glamorous tents (each with a 4-star en-suite), and a warm meal around the firepit. Over the next 3 days we were given a tour of the local village and the citrus groves, with a picnic in the groves with lots of fresh orange juice. We were also treated to some excellent shopping brought right to the door (wholesalers brought their produce on bikes to sell at discounted prices, including a range of the most amazing local shawls and scarves).
The host family are incredibly generous with their time, great cooking, tours and knowledge of the local area. While there a group of South Africans also moved into the accommodation and even joined in our Wedding - getting married in a Hindu wedding with all the trimmings with all the Australia guests dressed to the nines. Great fun! Could not recommend this accommodation more highly - a truly unique experience - and first class facilities. Slept like a log in the cosy bed with big warm covers!
