the space

Under the Canopy was conceived by a former urban couple who made a deliberate choice to abandon their hectic professions and embrace a serene rural existence. Nestled within a vast 8-acre mango farm, it resides amidst flourishing fields of sugarcane, vibrant marigold blooms, and verdant patches of paddy, stretching from one end to the mighty Cauvery river at the other. The farm boasts an impressive array of over 70 mango trees, including several ancient ones over a century old, whose magnificent canopy blankets half an acre. The oldest villager, aged 91, fondly recalls climbing these trees during his childhood.

 

Apart from mangoes, the farm yields a diverse range of produce such as coconuts, sugarcane, beans, and lentils, among others. The proprietors are currently experimenting with a self-sustaining model that harmoniously integrates the growth of crops, fruit trees, organic vegetables, reared cows, and the utilization of generated waste for organic manure. This endeavor creates a lifestyle that is simultaneously uncomplicated, natural, and beneficial for one’s well-being.

 

The tranquility that envelops the farm makes it an idyllic sanctuary for meditation or indulging in a good book. The couple graciously opens their farm’s gates to kindred spirits, offering them the opportunity to revel in peacefulness and solitude.

comforts

Within the expansive 8-acre property lie three delightful, rustic double-bed cottages, each equipped with its own en-suite bathroom. The first cottage takes inspiration from stupa designs and features an adjacent concrete bench, perfect for leisurely napping (as many have comfortably done in the past and likely continue to do so). The other two cottages are twins, sharing a charming veranda, adorned with wooden slats for a ceiling and bay windows that offer picturesque views of the farm. The flooring boasts a refreshing red oxide, while the bathrooms boast a tasteful stone floor, providing both charm and a skid-proof surface.

 

All three cottages find themselves embraced by the soothing shade of the mango tree canopy. Adjacent to the cottages, a thatched “pavilion” serves as a dining area, allowing guests to savour their meals in the open air. A wooden swing and a hammock chair gently sway amidst the mango trees, offering moments of relaxation. The property can accommodate a maximum of nine adults and remains operational throughout the year.
