The best of what to eat/shop/do in your city, delivered in a brown paper bag

Wake up to daily updates in your inbox


Is the porch of your vacation home where you had your first kiss? Is this where you kids spent every summer vacation? Did the writing desk in the study once belong to someone famous?

Every home has a story, and SaffronStays is looking for yours. The luxe vacation home rental service has launched the first in what will be an annual award series - India’s Most Memorable Vacation Home Awards 2018. 

If you own, have inherited, or designed a holiday home, go ahead and send in your story with an accompanying photo to SaffronStays. This is not an architecture or design award per se, the folks on the panel want you to know. “We are trying to recognise homes that have a story and have a special quality that has helped create memories. Thus, the awards will be given to a home and not to individual architects, owners or designers.” 

Categories for the nominations include waterfront and mountain homes; heritage and eco-friendly villas, and even those that are pet friendly! Press paws and apply here

 Go whisper the news into the wind, and hope it carries to your villa. Better still, deliver the good news in person. You’re due for a vacay anyway.  

Getting there: SaffronStays, get more information about the awards on, nominations close on December 31, 2017, apply here.
