Imagine being in the midst of the Panchgani hills in the Sahyadris, enjoying the cool monsoon breeze, watching the rains and soaking in the views clouds brushing by the lush green hills. It is the what many Mumbaikars and Puneites dream of when the weekends come rolling in, especially in this season. Now throw in a private pool and a villa in that scene too. It sounds like the kind of luxury escape from the big city that can only be afforded by a few, but it is actually much closer to your reach.

Enter the Caramba, a villa with a private pool that lies near the famed Table Land plateau of Panchgani. Close to the arterial road and far enough to offer some peace and solitude, the villa can be a nice place to stay in for the weekend and unwind in the midst of nature. You can book the place on AirBnB right here, and the whole thing wouldn’t cost a bomb either, despite the private pool and its proximity to the prime tourist spot that is Table Land. You’ll get the exact address and details to reach the place once you book the place on Airbnb. Also Read - 5 Weekend Getaway Places To Explore Near Mumbai

Weekend prices are INR 25,000 per night if you book it for the weekend and around INR 22,000 if you book in the weekdays, with a minimum stay of two days. Split the cost between six people, and you get a per-head cost of around 3,600-4,200 per night. Add in the caretaker, cooks and the music system, and you have all the ingredients for a fun weekend in the hills.
