Our 3 room cottage was a duplex set with 2 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining areas on the first floor and a lovely attic style seating area with a third bedroom on the 2nd floor. The cottage has large bay windows to let the sunlight and the greenery in. It... More

We would not have found a better place to stay during our holiday!! We stayed at the cottages at Aleo,which is quite near to the Mall road yet it was so peaceful amidst the apple orchards and could get a view of the snow capped mountains and dense forest from the rooms even. The cottages are very well maintained and... More

If you're looking for a place to come with family or friends and live like you're in a posh home with perfect service, amazing rooms, and complete access then this is the place to be. If you want amazing views and you wanna feel like you've come to India's Switzerland stay here and no where else

If I have a keep the review short.... all I can say is that retreat cottages is one place where photos postes in the website are inferior to the real experience. .... the experience is real... The cleaniness of the cottages, the cosy beds, the service, the food (of course chargeable).... above all the owner of Retreat cottages. ... all... More

BOOM BOOM The cottages were lovely and were in a gorgeous location. They were clean, cosy and the beds extremely comfortable. Very helpful staff, ready to do the dishes and clean the rooms spotlessly. We went somewhere different every day.The only down-side was having to leave.A truly memorable, restful and relaxing holiday. Cannot wait to stay there again!

There was a lovely view of... More
