Description

The Hermitage Guesthouse is a small family run concern offering you an individual service.

 

There are three independent units available: The Machan: A home on stilts eleven feet above the ground with great views, built with bamboo and wood. There is a private western style bathroom at ground level, open to the sky.  Look up and delight in the green forest canopy, you will find it far more interesting than a book!  Cold running water supplied on tap, hot water available from a “Bhum”, located near by.  The Machan is not electrified. Suitable for two adults.

 

The Kadaba is a typical village home. Based on a raised foundation of rammed earth, it is built of bamboo, wood and mud plaster. There is a modern western style bathroom, open to the sky with cold running water supplied on tap. Hot water available from the “Bhum”. Not electrified [Suitable for two adults and two children or for three adults].

 

The Gota: Is a rural cottage, with cool soothing interiors. The floors are locally made red clay tiles, and the roof is distinctive, because of the old recycled, hand made village tiles. There is a modern western style bathroom attached, with running hot and cold water. The Gota is electrified. [Two children can also be accommodated in this cottage.]

 

The Hermitage is 100% organic. Every season we grow a variety of vegetables for the Guesthouse and for sale in Belgaum and Goa. The seed material we use is open pollinated, some being very old varieties with a long history. Our cereals, such as rice and wheat are also home grown, so is our turmeric and ginger, sweet potato and onions. Our eggs are free range. We try to be as self reliant as possible, only sourcing from outside when we fall short!
