Aura is a 3 acre property set in the middle of crop fields in the village of Manakpur Sharif, about 20 minutes from Chandigarh, India.

My family and I live here, and we have a guest bedroom to spare for fun, interesting people who're looking for a peaceful vacation away from the city.

We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, assuming you would want to stay in during your time at Aura. You're welcome to spend time with us in the evenings if you choose to.

The space
Aura Farmhouse is a 12500 sq. ft. farm house set in the centre of a 3 acre farm land. The property has a 384 meter walking track along its boundary and is perfect for relaxed morning/evening walks. The house itself is spacious, airy and open.

The house opens on to a swimming pool with attached changing rooms. The back lawn further extends into the orchard where you will find a large variety of fruit trees. The orchard also houses a 1000 sq. ft. pottery studio and you can sign up for some pottery classes as well if you like.

On the front of the house we run an Organic kitchen garden in about 1 acre of space, so you may want to enjoy this also.

Guest access
As our guest at Aura, you will be able to access all parts of the house other than our own private bedroom, office and terrace. The common spaces are very large and comfortable. You are free to use any part of the indoors & outdoors as per your liking.

Other things to note
Chandigarh is a half an hour drive from Aura. Since we work in Chandigarh we will be happy to guide you to places to visit etc.

We have three dogs, Fifi - a golden labrador and Bosch and Bono, a doberman and a doberdor. The dogs stay outdoors, are friendly and very therapeutic to play with.

In the summer time, one may chance across a snake or two during the entire season. Mostly they are harmless rat snakes.

There is no neighborhood as such around Aura, we are surrounded by crop fields. The view from the rooftop is beautiful. The village of Manakpur Sharif is a short distance away and it has a Mosque which can be visited. You can use our cycles and explore the area around, which is primarily rural. Road connectivity to Aura is excellent.

Aura is a resident farm house 20 minutes from the beautiful city of Chandigarh. Built in 2012, it has been our home for the past 8 years. I live here with my two daughters Ada & Anya. My husband Atul and I designed and built Aura over a period of 2.5 years. Everything in our home has been designed by us and executed on site. You may catch us referring to Aura as 'our third baby'. Sadly, Atul passed away in February 2019, although his playful spirit and generosity still lingers. I love spending time in my studio and pottering around. I am a self-taught potter and have been practicing since 2015. I also play the role of CEO at RedAlkemi, a digital marketing agency Atul and I started in 2005. Ada, my oldest daughter, is a senior project manager at RedAlkemi. She is also a Bullet Journal enthusiast and wall muralist. You might see her embroidering or painting walls at Aura, singing along to her favourite tunes. Anya, my younger daughter heads Aura Life, an initiative to promote sustainable living through events, workshops and open days. She is an animal lover and gardening enthusiast. She likes to document our eco conscious lifestyle and spread awareness about low waste living. Our fully equipped pottery studio is a popular spot for our guests to get their hands dirty and work with clay. We offer pottery classes moderated by our studio coordinator. Having lived the farm life for almost a decade, we're always up for giving farm, orchard and kitchen garden tours! The RedAlkemi office is conveniently situated within Aura, surrounded by the organic kitchen garden. It makes for a great workspace for our guests looking for a work vacation in a peaceful environment. When we travel we like to stay with people who belong to the area we're visiting. Likewise, we enjoy meeting and engaging with like minded people from all over the world and encourage them to come experience a holistic, modern farm life. If you ever visit Aura, we would enjoy spending time with you and get to know you better. Aura is also home to four beautiful dogs - Fifi, Bosch, Bono and Mojo. They make for the perfect companions on walks around the property. You'll also find a dozen chickens, toads and occasional snakes that help create a natural micro ecosystem at Aura.
