Description of the Cochin vacation farmhouse / barn rental
Nestled in the serene, quiet township of Kongorpilly, The Nutmeg Tree Farm is located about 15 km away from Cochin City. Surrounded by a lush nutmeg orchard in approximately an acre of land, is the Nutmeg Farmhouse, nestled in between pristine nature and virgin village life. Two-storeyed, wood panelled, cushioned with all facilities of home comfort, the farmhouse tends to every detail, ensuring a perfect stay for you and your companions.

Wake up to the sound of local birds, if not comforting silence. Enjoy organic

cuisine by collecting eggs from the hen coop, plucking fresh home-grown produce and milking the cow. Indulge in absolute nature by feeding the farm animals, fishing at the brook, harvesting produce, baking bread or even cycling in and around the lush property.

Authentic countryside lifestyle at its best, the farm gives you an exhilarating experience that takes inspiration solely from minimalistic living and nature.
