        have you thought about marketing it as weekend getaway on couch surfing websites for those who want to get away from the city. but you would need someone nearby to maintain the property after the weekenders pack up which you can possibly get from the nearby village.

          Thanks for your reply. Since it is difficult to maintain the property with a commercial interest, I decided to look for like minded friends who wish to spend quality time during weekends and the idea is working out quite well. We are in the process of adding a small farm of 32 cents land which we are planning to use for organic farming which will eventually be maintained by those who live there during the weekends.

            I don't think you can maintain a farm land by monitoring over weekend. Also farming in a village by city people is difficult. You have to fight for water, deciding type of crop and fertilizers. It's not easy.

              Thx for the inputs. So far it has worked as the area is too small - a little over half an acre. Moreover we have a borewell, electricity connection, a full fledged farm house for staying and storage , a thickly populated neighbourhood and above all few like minder friends who have come forward to join hands.
              Anyway only time will tell
