To live your best mountain life, peak into the #bpbBricks look book today and find Albany Cottage, a hillside home put together by Isprava, the makers of gorgeous villas across India.

The Hills Are Alive…

…with the sound of a roaring fireplace. Welcome to the soothing white living room that is the centre piece of Albany Cottage. The colonial style home itself is spread across 780 square meters in Wellington Green, a stone’s throw away from the golf course. Bedrooms (four in total) come alive with splashes of yellow and avocado greens, while showers offer views of Nilgiri’s rolling tea plantations and clouds that are chubbier than cherubs. Barbeques, bonfires and board games are listed under “in-villa entertainment”.

While you and your book may be content to lie back on a plantation chair in the cottage’s sit out. Your day can start with a fishing trip and end with a horse riding class and a trek; or you can also opt for a round of golf followed by a tea tasting and an Ayurvedic massage. Their lovely guest relations executives are also happy to help with restaurant recommendations – Café Diem, Open Kitchen, Coonoor Club – and other logistical details, should you feel the need to rent a car and drive off to Coimbatore (90 minutes away) or Ketti Valley (25 minutes away) for the day. 

Need more temptation? Take a video tour here, and then book toute de suite!
