Villa
Skyfall is one of the most spectacularly located homes in the Palani Hills, set on the edge of a mountain, hidden away from downtown Kodaikanal. Enjoy wrap-around views of lush green mountains and the spellbinding Perumal Peak, with none of the speckled urban development to hinder the picture. If you can pull yourself away from the scenery, then within, you will find a truly charming holiday villa fully-loaded with everything that makes for a perfect vacation in the hills. Skyfall was designed by Bangalore-based Biome Environmental Solutions, known for their focus on the convergence of ecology, architecture and water. The house merges with the steep gradient of the land and has been positioned in such a way that all the spaces take advantage of the jaw-dropping views.

Enjoy wrap-around views of lush green mountains and the spellbinding Perumal Peak, with none of the speckled urban development to hinder the picture. If you can pull yourself away from the scenery, then within, you will find a truly charming holiday villa fully-loaded with everything that makes for a perfect vacation in the hills. Skyfall was designed by Bangalore-based Biome Environmental Solutions, known for their focus on the convergence of ecology, architecture and water. The house merges with the steep gradient of the land and has been positioned in such a way that all the spaces take advantage of the jaw-dropping views. By using mud-blocks made with soil that was excavat-ed on-site, Skyfall stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer sun. Sloping roofs and comprehensive rainwater harvesting ensures that the villa has never had to buy or exploit water. Designed on two levels, Skyfall’s upper level has the approach driveway leading to a covered garage and entrance to the house. A mud room and foyer leads east to an open-plan space comprising a modern island kitchen, a dining area and a bar area - the perfect way to bond and relax over cooking, drinking and dining. French doors open-up to the house’s most popular gathering area — the expansive covered balcony. Drink in the ever-changing panoramic views of Perumal Peak and the farm-filled plains of Palani and its hill-temple, with nothing to hinder the view. A passageway leads off from the foyer past a small study nook to the upper bedroom and ensuite bath-room. The bedroom has a loft which can sleep two young children. Off the foyer, a wooden staircase leads down to the lower level comprising the lower bedroom with its en-suite bathroom and large windows that frame the same beautiful views. On your right is a comfortable living room that is kept warm with a roaring Franklin woodstove. The living room leads to its own covered sit-out and to a large terraced lawn that is ideal for picnic lunches or bonfire dinners. Behind the living room is a media room perfect for movie nights. Skyfall is meant for family bonding or for close friends. The open-plan kitchen & dining encourages you to cook and dine together. The fully-equipped house is ideal for the independent traveller, although the presence of a daily housekeeper is a welcome sight. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 33AAACM2431L1ZR

The best !
So we went with our extended family and stayed here for a couple of days. I have lived in Kodai for a good five years and I know most of the places in and around there but this particular is about 20 mins away from the lake. Tucked away and it is the best best view in the whole of Kodaikanal. The architecture, facilities, attention to detail to everything inside the house. It’s fully equipped and better equipped than my own house on a certain level of things to a fault. It is also pet friendly. It is the only best place in Kodaikanal to spend weekend with your family. The villa has a 250 degree pano view of Vilpatty, Kovilpatty, Palani hills with Winndmills on a good day and Perumal malai and Peak. The view is just mind blowing, you just cannot et over it. Looking forward for my next break over there. Thank you so much for the hospitality.

About the neighbourhood
The location of the house makes it feel like its hours away from civilization during your first few trips in and out of town. Once you are familiar with the route, you will realise you are only 20 minutes from the Lake! There are interesting day outings for you - Poombarai (scenic drive, terraced villages, temple) 40-50 minutes; Mannavanur (scenic drive, sheep & rabbit farms, picnics) 60-70 minutes; Palani (temple on the rock) 2 hours; Dindigul (fort, cigars, and flower market) 2.5 hours and Madurai (temples, street food, architecture) 3 hours.
Getting around
Due to its location, there is no public transport available. You will need a self-drive car or a car & driver. We recommend avoiding cars with very low ground clearance.
Access
Car required
How to get there
The closest railhead is Kodai Road Station 2 hours away and is connected by the Tejas Express from Chennai. The closest airport is Madurai about 3 hours drive and Coimbatore about 5 hours away. Skyfall is located within a private gated mountain-side estate, about 20 minutes from the Kodaikanal lake. A common use road leads past two other houses, set well-apart, to Skyfall which is at the end. A concrete sloped driveway leads you to the single-car covered garage and front of the house with open parking for 1 more car, and clear parking for 2-3 cars on the common-use road above.
