Portuguese villa with private pool

An impressive 100-year-old Colonial-era Portuguese villa spanning an extensive 10,000 sq ft, effusing an old world charm that celebrates the culture and heritage of the beautiful Indian state of Goa. This imposing property has undergone a careful and sympathetic restoration preserving its historical features and unique design.

The villa has an impressive façade, beautiful dormer windows and a long and imposing balcao with traditional wrought iron railings and mother-of-pearl windowpanes, where guests can relax undisturbed with only the picturesque surroundings for company. A high beamed wood ceiling roof keeps the villa cool and well-ventilated at all times. The flooring is artistically arranged with intricate mosaic terracotta tiling of the Portuguese era arranged in attractive and eye-catching patterns. The generously proportioned high-ceilinged suites feature rosewood four-poster beds with ornately carved bedheads, antique period furniture and almirahs, gilded pelmets adorned with lace curtains and romantic corridors. Laze around by the sunny private garden pool, indulge in a long siesta whilst monkeys cavort in the trees or down a fiery feni (or two!) with the birds chirping overhead and you will truly appreciate what the true Goan susegado lifestyle is all about. Take a trip down memory lane and settle in for an unparalleled Goan experience that will evoke sentiments of nostalgia and stir the imagination.
