Majhya Mamacha Gaon | Agritourism

Note: Translation for Majhya Mamacha Gaon, means “My uncle’s village”. Earlier during childhood most kids would spend their vacation time at Uncle’s home. To make a connect with that concept and to make the guests feel at home, the name Majhya Mamacha Gaon is seriously apt.

My wife and I love visiting rural setups and staying amidst nature. Guhagar was on our list since a long time, and one of the weekends we decided to make a trip to this place. My wife googled for the best accommodation available and as per tripadvisor rating and reviews we narrowed down on “Majhya Mamacha Gaon” in Mundhar near Guhagar, Maharashtra. More than a resort, it is known as an agritourism farm. The property is located off, Guhagar road, Mundhar, Maharashtra. We visited this place in Jan 2016. Spread over 12 acres of land Majhya Mamacha Gaon provides its guests with simple yet very clean and rural environment. You step out of the room and you get too see all the colors and enjoy all the beautiful fragrances of nature. All in all a perfect experience of a village stay. With an idea to eliminate the gap between tourism and eco-friendliness, Majhya Mamacha Gaon, owners, the Salvi family, have implemented the practice of agritourism in the Mundhar village at Guhagar. I must say that I really found this concept of agritourism really interesting as it allows you to not only spend your time on a good holiday but also makes sure you get to participate in interesting activities that can bring you really closer to nature. I’d certainly be looking for more of such agritourism concept based resorts in the future.

What you will like about Agritourism and this resort

I can’t just point out one thing that we liked about this place. Its just about everything. From our pleasant stay, to a relaxed day, to watching birds and the main part of our stay, the food. Mrs. Sujata Salvi is a magician with cooking. The Konkani dishes that she cooked herself were an absolute delight. I am a vegetarian, however, my wife’s feedback about the non-veg food was equally full of appreciation. She loved the food too.

There’s this small play area for kids with a slide, see-saw, and two pairs of swings. All of these are also very well maintained. There are two gazebos surrounded by plants and flowers with seats where you can sit, relax and chat with your folks. The rooms, were absolutely clean not a single complaint about it. Once you visit this place, I’m sure you’ll make new friends—friends with the Salvi Family for their wonderful hospitality.

Bird Watching at Mundhar

To my surprise, I got to see some really amazing birds in and around Majhya Mamacha Gaon. I got to see Rufous Treepie, Black Rumped Flameback, Magpie Robin, Green Bee-Eater, Fantail, White-Bellied Drongo, Black Drongo, Purple Sunbird, Red-Vented Bulbul, Red-Whiskered Bulbul, Common Tailorbird, Indian Roller, White Throated Kingfisher, White Rumped Munia, Long-Tailed Shrike, Asian Paradise Fly Catcher, Common Babbler and some more of which I don’t know the names. It was an amazing experience as most of the birds you will get to see in the property of Majhya Mamacha Gaon itself. Some were spotted in the vast open area outside the property. It was really very kind of Mr. Samir Salvi to take us to a beautiful location in the Mundhar village which was close to a water stream in search of more birds sighting. It was a fruitful outing as I saw an Asian Paradise Fly Catcher for the very first time. Click here to view photos of all the birds seen in and around Majhya Mamacha Gaon, Mundhar, Maharashtra.

  1. My uncle’s village.. seems to be very interesting from the name itself. Looking at the photos i was awed by the rural-ish vibe of the place. Very simple yet very homey. This countryside has a charming appeal that people who has a deep connection with nature and country style living could easily adapt to. I would love to spend a weekend here. Seems like i can write so much with this kind of environment, inspiring!

  2. Oh my. This place is like paradise!!! Nothing beats the hospitality you experienced from the Salvi family. The agritourism concept is a good way to combine nature and modern living. I think living in this place for a day or two just wont work. A whole week is necessary to really imbibe the energy from this place. ❤

  3. Nice photos in your post, as usual.
    Glad to know you can find both vegetarian and non-veg food which are both great according to your feedback. The place is nice for tranquility and relaxation. Good spot if you want to spend some laid days.

  4. Absolutely stunning photos. It pretty amazing t fin accommodation that gives you the best of both worlds. When is the best time to visit to experience the warm weather. It is also pleasing to know that they offer vegetarian foods too 🙂

  5. I seldom see people like you who really wanted to be close to nature, so kudos to you! This place sounds like a Hidden paradise waiting to be discovered. Im just hoping that they can really maintain it even if a lot of people comes. Plus points also for the bird watching. Looks like you really enjoyed and learned a thing or two over this vacation. 👍

    1. The owners aren’t really marketing the place but still it has ample visitors just by word of the mouth publicity. This place is rated full 5 stars on Tripadvisor 🙂 by almost all the guests who have been there.

  6. I think aside from the great food, just having a place to relax, chill, take in nature is what made the place very appealing. I will forever love your photography skills! Doesn’t it feel like looking through a different lens every time you see something beautiful. If I ever decide to visit the place, I’ll let you know!

    1. Thank you. This place had ample opportunities for some photography and yes, it’s great to be in if you want to spend some quality, quiet and peaceful time amidst nature.

  7. This place is beautiful, I’m sure it is a place where you can break away from the city. A place where one can taste, see and get close to nature. I love especially those photopgraphs that you took of the birds. They looked so beautiful and I’m sure it will be nice to see them flying around the place. I felt that I love this place, as I love the homey feel it gives me. I love nature and simplicity of life. This place will suit me.

  8. I grew up in a community near my grandfather’s farm. And this place reminds me of it. You’ve mentioned that you can take part of garden activities. Is it really a part of what the place offers? Or is it depending on the Salvi family if they’re gonna do a specific activity this day? Farming is one thing I saw when I grew up and it is nice that people from the city can experience it too!

    1. Hi Bea, upon request they can conduct specific gardening and farming activities for the visitors. However there may be some dependency on what time of the month it is and what season.

      Even I’m very fond of farming and gardening. Have grown some vegetables at home now.

  9. The place just looks simple. However, this kind of tourism is actually important for city dwellers to be refreshed. I agree with you that gadgets should be stowed away so as to enjoy the nature. After all, that’s the purpose of one’s visit and also to know more about gardening and/or farming.

  10. Lovely place! Perfect for nature lovers and those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. IT looks simple but soothing. And those birds are so cute! I love the idea of bird-watching but I haven’t found a place like that here that I like. The cottage is also quite lovely.

  11. I never heard of this place and not particular to me. But it sure has a wonderful ambiance. And yes, just by seeing the photos you have here, one can definitely relax indeed. Glad that they also offer good food. the idea of putting space for kids, this is definitely a must visit particularly for a family with kids!

  12. I think the world needs places like this where the people get away from the tablets, computers, phones and really enjoy the nature, the birds watching and fresh food.

    I have been many times in Goa, just arrived from there last Sunday and will be there again next November, maybe a good time to visit it hee 🙂

  13. The name majhya mamacha sounds interesting. Also the idea of eco-tourism is becoming more and more popular. from your pictures it depicts a typical Konkan atmosphere.I love such rustic places.

  14. This is a really beautiful place. Maharastra has a lot of these. Doctor’s farm in Kolad is a lot similar as are some places that I visited in Satara. The Satara place had a lot of weaver birds and it was fun watching them get in and out of those nests
