It’s that time of the year to bring out the large hats, sunscreen and your favorite pair of shorts. Summer is here! And it is doing it’s best to scorch us to a crisp. While most of us would head down to the neighborhood club pool, the elite in India are buying vacation homes to escape the summer!

Despite having one of the highest soaring temperatures in summer, India has witnessed this trend only recently. The A-list is not only buying plush villas and apartments with service support for self-use but also renting it out during winters and months that it is not in use.

While Los Angeles, West Palm Beach or Malibu might be perfect places in the USA to buy summer homes, India is more about hill stations like Nainital, Shimla, Lonavala and Kodaikanal with Goa being an exception.
