The blossoming of flowers, lush greenery, gentle humming of raindrops, the squelching of mud, the fresh petrichor is synonymous with Monsoons. June ushering in indicates a gradual shift in seasons. From hot and humid, to more pleasant and cool times; from cold lemonade to piping hot cups of chai, from the scorching sun to misty breeze passing by. Monsoons are idyllic but dirty, soothing but slippery, beautiful, and sometimes uncomfortable, but above all, the rains are unmatchable.
In case you plan to do Monsoon special gateways, please do consider Vista Rooms. Here are some beautiful properties for your ready ref –
1) Mantra, Lonavala
Hosting sprawling homes and villas on rent, Lonavala is home to some of the best that Vista has. But a must-visit during the monsoons would be Mantra. Layered lawns, picturesque views, a massive swimming pool and an outdoor jacuzzi are only a few of the many features of this sprawling villa. Echoing a vintage allure, the home’s Siberian wooden facade adds a rustic charm that serves as a perfect backdrop for the monsoon!
2) Villa Amarillo, Alibaug
