Palaces out the tracks

Heritage properties all over India

Thanks to schemes encouraging owners of old palaces to convert their properties into heritage hotels, India sees its offer for luxurious but affordable stays increased every day!

While this kind of properties in the middle of the cities costs at least 15000rs, you can easily find beautiful places in the countryside from 2000rs! You just need to plan properly your trip and you could stay in a Maharaja palace at a very affordable price!

Below a small selection.

And to make it easier, a map to locate them!

All the locations are also accessible from Delhi for a short weekend trip!
