Nirvrithi

This restored home built in 1865, unique for that time, reveals a distinctive colonial face on the outside with prominent pillars, arches and a grand elevated sloping tile roof, the inside was defined by the daily needs and agricultural lifestyle of the Gounders – with minimal rooms and large undefined spaces for storage.

Each level of the restored block has been turned into a suite designed for a complete home experience. The expansive and airy open verandas around the living quarters on both floors offer the opportunity to laze with a book, be immersed in music or in quiet meditation. The bedrooms, with 2 ft. thick soundproofed walls built in 1865, are slumber niches. Once snuggled in , it is often a challenge to get out of them. The living spaces within each block transforms into a library, work studio or a private lounge bar as you choose. The open courtyard with its lily pond and landscaped surroundings could be your personal yoga sanctuary. Each level has its own climate-controlled bedroom, living space, verandas and en-suite bathroom.

Passionately driven by their love for and understanding of great food, the hosts, Ria and Joseph, explore local ingredients and traditions to serve up imaginative, tasty and nourishing fare. Their menu will offer preparations made from locally sourced ingredients obtained from their own farm as well as those from the region.

Passionately driven by their love for and understanding of great food, the hosts explore local ingredients and traditions to serve unimaginative, tasty and nourishing fare. Their menu will offer preparations made from locally sourced ingredients obtained from their own farm as well as those from the region. For Joesph and Ria, food is a passion, and the couple takes joy in preparing a range of cuisines from Indian to Italian. The ingredients grown on their farms such as pumpkin, tomatoes and chillies are a part of their dishes, along with the cream cheese, mascarpone and ricotta made at home from locally sourced, unpasteurised milk. Joseph highly recommends his slow-cooked lamb, cheesecakes and tiramisu. Ria’s pannacotta and pasta are a must.

Activities

On any one evening of your stay there will be artistic performances at Nirvriti. These shows offer the rare opportunity to witness the performing arts of Kerala in quiet and intimate settings. They include classical Indian music featuring flute, percussion and vocals and dance recitals that include the famed kathakali or mohiniattam styles by local artists. If desired one can request an informal interactive session with the artists to know more about their craft and traditions before dinner.

Chittur is filled with pleasing landscapes, small settlements and attractive old buildings, many of them with a long history. The region is also home to a rare mix of people and communities practicing unusual vocations that go back in time but have continued to this day. 

Experience the special character of this region’s geography and socio-economic culture that originated in the deep past.

Today, Agraharams are fast disappearing to make way for bigger, swankier apartments and modern houses. With the younger generation migrating to cities or other countries across the world in search of jobs, Agraharams now stand alone with only memories of an interesting way of life. Urbanisation has made the performance of elaborate rituals shorter, reflecting a marked change in contemporary lifestyle that can no longer be adapted to the Agraharam and its community. Privacy is valued a lot more today, which means common walls are a source of discomfort and common wells are no longer in use with every household opting to have their own plumbing systems.

We’ll start with an introduction to Kerala’s diverse culinary traditions, highlighting the unique flavors, ingredients, and cooking techniques that define the region’s cuisine. You’ll learn about the importance of coconut, curry leaves, spices, and other key ingredients in Kerala cooking. Whether you’re a seasoned home cook or a culinary enthusiast looking to expand your repertoire, our cooking class at Nirvriti promises an unforgettable culinary experience filled with flavors, aromas, and memories to treasure. Get ready to embark on a culinary adventure through the vibrant tastes of Kerala!

Our experiences

Art performance

The performing arts of God’s Own Country have a special pull and connection amongst all audiences. On stage or by the road, the setting is never the primary attraction but rather, what steals the spotlight. It is the artists on stage with their movements, make-up and story telling. For centuries, they have colourfully presented great epics and acted as a mirror on the state of the society with their ever so subtle social criticism. They are important pillars of our heritage. Below we have listed some of the finest performing arts prevalent in Kerala

Parambikulam wildlife sanctuary

The wildlife sanctuary, which had an area of 285 square kilometres (110 sq mi) was established in 1973. It is in the Sungam range of hills between the Anaimalai Hills and Nelliampathy Hills.[3][4][5] Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary was declared as part of the Parambikulam Tiger Reserve on 19 February 2010.[6][7][8] Including the buffer zone, the tiger reserve has a span of 643.66 km2. The Western Ghats, Anamalai Sub-Cluster, including all of Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary, is under consideration by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee for selection as a World Heritage Site.[9] The sanctuary is the home of four different tribes of indigenous peoples including the Kadar, Malasar, Muduvar and Mala Malasar settled in six colonies.

Silent Valley National Park

Silent Valley National Park is a national park in Kerala, India. It is located in the Nilgiri hills, has a core area of 89.52 km2 (34.56 sq mi), which is surrounded by a buffer zone of 148 km2 (57 sq mi). This national park has some rare species of flora and fauna. This area was explored in 1847 by the botanist Robert Wight.[2] It is located in the border of Mannarkkad Taluk of Palakkad district, Nilambur Taluk of Malappuram district, Kerala, and Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu.

Tales from the loom

Handloom weaving was a common economic activity in this region until as recently as the beginning of the millennium. Like most social vocations this was practiced only by certain communities. The ones settled here originated from other parts of present-day Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh whose ancestors moved to this region in search of work. Many of these original families were directly employed by the royal court and nobility of the time.
