We are in Nashik. These are the distances to nearby attractions:

Sula Vineyards: 5-7 minute drive

York Winery: 3-5 minute drive

Soma Vineyards: 5-7 minute drive

As we mentioned, guests come to us to switch off. We do not have or encourage wi-fi. We don't have televisions either. Bring a book, talk to the other guests and take a walk around the lake instead.
