Add-on experiences offered by the host
Organic Farming at Devra
Get your hands dirty at our very own organic garden. You can milk the cows, learn how vegetables are grown or just help us out (depending upon the weather).
The homestay offers complete privacy, but also has a certain welcoming openness about its milieu – exquisite views coupled with fresh air and cool breeze only enhance the affable atmosphere. This stay draws inspiration from the indigenous arts and lifestyle, and blends it beautifully with modernistic layouts.
Interaction with Guests
The Hosts - Major Durga Das and Mrs. Jyoti Jasol reside here and do everything possible to make their guests feel comfortable and feel at home. Major Das, the owner, is a keen environmentalist and knows the estate and surrounding hills and forests very well. He is always ready to play guide and take you around – and regale you with stories of leopards who cross the property sometimes (worry not, they usually consume only poultry), birds and other flora and fauna.
The Devra Homestay is not too far away from the city yet located in a peaceful natural setting surrounded by farm land on all sides.
The homestay is just 6.6 Kms. from the famous Lake Pichola in Udaipur. The City Centre of Udaipur is just 15 minute drive from Devra. You can explore the lakes, cafes and Vibrant culture of Udaipur. Also visit the famous temples of the city.
Other Things to Note
• Food is prepared from organic produce as per your taste. If you have any specific meal-requirements, please inform the staff before hand so that it can be arranged accordingly.
• Devra homestay is located in the outskirts of Udaipur towards the south end of Lake Pichhola and therefore the availability of public transport is not plentiful here. If you want to head to the city, we recommend you get your own vehicle or ask the staff to book a cab for you.
• You can go bird watching around the property, go for a village tour to get a taste of the local life or simply relax in the terrace and soak up the views. Yoga and meditation classes can be arranged if you inform the staff beforehand.
• Try to maintain the peace and calm of the place while you enjoy your stay.
