We were two families who had visited Parashar. We were very happy with all the personal attention. Food quality excellent, service always with a smile and the various programs set personally by Manoj were a treat. Please do visit.
We have visited this place twice so far. We are few of those very lucky people who were part of the first batch when it was started. The experience was very very good. Manoj personally looks after the guests, goes out of the way to fulfill your demands/ wishes. Food is excellent and very homely. Manoj’s bhabhi and mom prepare it. Recently we had great fun there during ‘Kojagiri’ celebration. We are again planning to visit during ‘Grape’ festival next year. I would strongly recommend this place to enjoy your quiet stay at a place where there is no pollution, good arrangement with personal touch, tasty homely food and all the life of a village that you can not just see but also experience. Some of the many experiences that I enjoyed most were milking a cow, drinking fresh milk, Bullock cart riding and driving, walking in farms etc. Strongly recommended!
Stayed with my family for 2 days which was a very enduring experience. A traditional Marathi welcome was followed by a rich introduction to to ancient farming methods and implements.by Mr. Manoj who is a post graduate in agriculture and a ‘son of the soil’ The food was simple, tasty, authentic rustic,marathi cuisine-cooked with loads of pride and served with a greater sense of “atithi devo bhavo” Must add here,-pleasantly unexpectedly- the food was one of the highlights of our visit and no doubt a reason to return. The self contained double rooms are neat, clean, and comfortable. the most endearing and novelle feature of Parashar agritourism is the refreshing lack of marketing overkill. The landscaping done is beautifully rustic with a feel of vastness and fresh air, The endevour to showcase their culture with dignity and pride, happy in each other’s success and the new found village prosperity shines through in the interactions. The entire itinerary is well planned and every attempt made to give the visitors a feel of village life, culture and community efforts.The enthusiasm of everyone to serve to the best of their ability stands out heartwarmingly. This place is best appreciated as a group of friends or large family.A good experience of rustic living. However, the loadshedding during the day, makes summer months very hot. Also a word of caution to those keen on buying grapes directly from the vineyard to please check the quality delivered. All in all, a must do refreshing weekend visit which I would definitely want to repeat
