Book Lovers, This is for You – Reading at The Orchard

“With freedom, books, flowers and the moon, who could not be happy?”
– Oscar Wilde

The beauty and serenity of the hills make for a perfect setting to get lost in the world of books. The famous song encapsulates this feeling with the following lyrics “ The hills are alive with the sounds of music” and how true these words are. Tucked away from cities with obnoxious levels of noise pollutions, one can only hear the symphonies of nature. Bubbling streams, birds chirping, and at times, silence. 

This is the way of life in the areas surrounding The Orchard, in Peora. Silence and peace are luxuries that are worth going the distance for. How often do you find yourself trying to indulge in a relaxing activity like reading or meditation only to find that your environment offers no solace and plenty of distractions? This leaves you with no choice but to re-read the same page in an otherwise gripping story a few times before advancing to the next page.

So we invite you to take time off from your busy, chaotic lives and stay at The Orchard for a couple of days or longer and take back control of your need for silence, peace and serenity. Bring a book or a few. Carry a yoga mat, or listen to your favourite podcasts undisturbed. Take solace in the fact that The Orchard, our luxury boutique hotel in Peora has many a space for your need to unwind and relax and just take it all in.

Come with a friend or a few. Get your significant other along with you. Or invite your full family – all to partake in the act of disconnecting from the realities of life and diving into pleasurable activities like reading, writing, dreaming and sleeping. Do as you like but do it together and see how rejuvenated you feel when it is time to leave…You leave well rested from the deep sleeps, your mind calm and recharged, and if you did absorb a book – then you leave more knowledgeable than you were before you arrived. Talk about accomplishing a lot – all in the name of self-care and nourishment.

Before we leave you to ponder over when you should come – here is a list of books that in our opinion, work best with the surreal setting of mountain ranges and green that surround our beloved hotel.
