Culture Aangan Holidays was featured in the April 2012 edition of Business Today. The story, which talked about how starting your own business, has become easier with different support networks smoothening the ride. Culture Aangan Holidays was rates as one of the country’s two most successful small scale businesses. The story focused on how Rashmi Sawant, the founder of this traditional traveling company steered the company through the initial stages to becoming one of the most renowned holiday services provider, especially among foreigners.

Ellie Cross, a traveler who recently returned to his hometown Washington after enjoying a rejuvenating Indian rural holiday says, “I loved my holiday with Culture Aangan! I was able to enjoy incredible home-cooked food along with a comfortable home stay in the relaxing outskirts of Kudal. My guide took me to visit a number of different artists in the community and was very helpful in ensuring my visit was perfectly suited to my needs… It’s a wonderful program that supports rural economies, while exposing the traveler to unique experiences,” adds Ellie.

The specialty of Culture Aangan lies in the fact that it provides extremely soul refreshing Indian holiday packages to people throughout the world - but with a difference. Unlike the glamorous and luxury packed costly holiday packages offered by most holiday services, Culture Aangan’s aim is to show you the real beauty of the Indian countryside. Travelers stay with local families, where they can enjoy the innate flavor of home cooked mouth watering authentic Konkani food. Apart from the culturally rich Konkan countryside, Culture Aangan has recently introduced its home stay ventures in Rajasthan, Rann of Kutch and several other Indian villages.

About Culture Aangan: With a diploma in travel and tourism, Rashmi Sawant laid the foundation of Culture Aangan in 2005. Starting with only a few home stays, Culture Aangan went on to develop nearly 15 more home stays and about 30 rural activities across Indian villages, including the famous Pinguli Tribal Art complex, within a span of only three years. Two years back, one of Culture Aangan’s home stays appeared on The Guardian’s “Top 10 Home Stays in India” list.
