WHAT TO DO AT RUSTICVILLE?
We are a rural farm stay and camping place in Lonavala. And there is no television or WiFi. While this might sound intimidating, a lot of parents have thanked us because they saw their children without iPads or phones and playing in mud and getting to know nature closely. The night sky is lit up with stars and constellations allowing you to rekindle childhood memories of aimlessly looking in to the sky. Try stargazing and locate and identify constellations yourself without the help of Google. We encourage people to talk to fellow guests and interact with them. Who knows you might just meet your new business partner or colleague or your new best friend at Rusticville.
TREK TO TIKONA FORT
Tikona, also known as Vitandgad is a seventh century fort which was used mainly to store grains and act as a beacon fort for the bigger Lohgad - Visapur fort. This is an easy trek which can be done by amateurs as well as kids. The entire trek takes not more than 2 hours to complete and is a healthy indicator for your current physical state.
BBQ & BONFIRE NIGHTS
We provide private bbq and bonfire pits for each group / family. Get nostalgic by playing antakshari with your group around the bbq and bonfire or lookout for shooting stars and make a wish with your loved ones lying on the rural khat (charpoy). If you are a music fan, we encourage you to carry your guitar along and strum through the night.
The vast blue waters of Pawana lake provide some breathtaking views and the boating points at the lake allow you to indulge in some water sports. Get some beautiful pictures clicked near the lake.
**Swimming in the lake water is discouraged and not advisable.
An outing at Rusticville can help you rejuvenate your senses and re-energise your mind. Do NOTHING! Let nature treat your stress and revitalise your senses. Bring along your favourite book and get immersed in the story. We have a few bestsellers as well which you may borrow.
