Floating Mountain Villa
Discover a hidden gem within reach
Let’s face the truth. In the past year and a half, COVID has turned our lives upside down. Forget domestic or international travel due to lockdowns and other safety measures most of us have quarantined ourselves in our homes.
Our fast-paced world is, quite literally, brought to a halt. Most of us are working from home, we’ve let our work bleed into our daily life, and some of us are struggling to draw the line between them. We all need a change of scenery at this point.
While travelling to exotic destinations earlier was the answer, now your list of travel destinations is quite restricted. Well, why not use this opportunity to discover some hidden gems within reach? One such destination for you to explore is the Floating Mountain Villa.

ABOUT THE OWNER:
Ms Gowri Ganesan, a lawyer by profession who practised in the UK, is the owner of this incredible mountain villa. She was in search of a holiday home when she stumbled upon this villa. When Gowri visited the property, she was spellbound by the beautiful scenery and the tranquillity it provided. Excited, she then explored the surrounding area and was again mesmerised by the Scottish architecture of the property. Gowri immediately decided to buy the property for her personal use and started renovating it. Although the property was initially not intended for business, Gowri felt that it was too serene and scenic, so she decided to share it with others. Considering her own fabulous experience here, Gowri gave this retreat to cater to the needs of people living abroad.
