Our Story

Established in 2018, JV Cottage is a self-sustaining paradise, and the brainchild of Risshi Tandon, an Architect by profession, and a nature lover that lives a sustainable lifestyle and enjoys hosting like-minded guests.

What started as a personal project of building the perfect farmhouse for him and his family, soon turned into a homestay, owing to his love for hosting and meeting new people! Thereon opening the gates of this little paradise to guests alike.

Thanks to his Architectural background, and having been inspired by his travels in South Africa, Risshi wanted to create something special for his guests. Thus building the coziest Swiss AC Chalets so his guests can experience the best of both worlds.

Being a nature lover himself and wanting to create his own little paradise, a plantation drive was organized on the property where 1500 trees were planted so guests can enjoy seasonal organic fruits and vegetables straight from our gardens! Mulberry, Guava, cherry apples, Jamun, lemon, and spices such as black pepper and curry leaves are just to name a few! Oh, and you’d definitely be welcomed by the most friendly German shepherds, geese, roosters, and hens!

Moreover, all the staff at JV Cottage are locals and are just like one big happy family whose only goal is to ensure you have the best time.

So leave all your worries and come stay with us and let us take care of the rest ;)
