We stayed for two nights in all - one night at either end of a nine days trip to North Kerala from Bangalore. The current name of the place is Pegasus Art Bistro (and not Sigrid's Place) although the place is still owned by Mrs Sigrid Benthin. She told us that she intends to sell part of her place soon - so, we can consider ourselves lucky to have sampled the charm of the place before it becomes out of bounds for accomodation purposes. She intends to continue with the restaurant operations though.
A few points make the property quite unique. Firstly, its is a rambling garden with lots of trees and plants and birds and is very peaceful. An early morning walk amidst the vegetation is very refreshing. Secondly, there is an artist's impression everywhere you go. You can enhance your experience by requesting Mrs. Benthin to play good classical European music. Thirdly, the place serves authentic European cuisine with generous servings. Food is well cooked. If you enjoy these aspects, you will love this place.
Accomodation is in two cottages separated by about fifty yards or so from each other. The cottage closer to the dining area has two interconnected rooms which can accomodate upto three people without extra beds. While structurally simple, this cottage
is nicely decorated with lots of paintings drawn by Mrs Benthin's late husband. The cottage further out is smaller and simpler and will accomodate two persons - this one also has paintings on the walls.
Overall, we had a very nice and serene stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Policy of Pegasus is to give creative guests the nesessary inspiration by offering tranquility, lush green and excellent Food and service. We thought of guests who want to work on a project like paintings or books or great plans. We also thought of guest who want to discover the South of India and we offer Pegasus as "Headquarter" where they can come and rest between trips. Washing Maschine and European Food (home-made bread) will help them to regain strength. Besides of this all other guests are heartily welcome. ... more less
