Summers in India can turn out very hot and sweltering. Especially in current times of fluctuating weather, we often wish to be anywhere else than in chaotic cities with blaring horns and sweaty palms. The heat and dryness in the atmosphere are felt day and night, and the exhaustion from this heat becomes a constant companion, making one feel to plan a relaxing escape. But summers are also a time when the tinkling ice cream trucks laden with cold kulfis and cones make their way around the city. What once made them our favourite time of the year, are the extended summer breaks from school and college. If you want to relive these good times in places close to home, it’s the perfect time to plan a rejuvenating summer getaway with your family members.
Remember how the month of April would always be the anticipation of approaching summer vacations? Family vacations during summer hold fond memories in everyone’s heart. It could be visiting a native place or heading on a beach vacation, sleeping with our head on granny’s lap, relishing the sweet mangoes and home-cooked meals still brings a smile to one’s face. When families meet together under one roof, the conversations flow and memories happen. Over time, as May vacations get thinner in terms of time, even a 2-3 days retreat at a private villa can recreate the same joy. If all of you have tied up routines, choosing a villa near the city can prove to be a wise decision this summer. It lets you save time on travel and explore the breathtaking locales nearby, be a part of experiences, and most importantly, enjoy the luxuries that you miss in your daily lives.
Summer vacations come in many forms, each more enchanting than the last. Whether you seek solitude and tranquillity, or adventure and exploration, a vacation is a perfect way to replenish your mind and body. Summer is perfect for the intrepid traveller seeking to soak up the sun and get a tan. Longer days and endless exploration possibilities make it the ideal time to embark on your next adventure. If you are looking to escape the sweltering heat and enjoy the season of summer in all its glory, discover the ultimate indulgence with Lohono Stays’ exquisite range of luxurious villas, offering the very best of what the region has to offer. Not sure, where to go? We are here to help you with the quick summer respites from the city.
