When we first visited Goa we loved the chilled out atmosphere of the area and the friendliness of the people.
We chose this location as this was in a quiet location and the perfect place for total relaxation yet close to all the liveliest beaches.
The unique benefits are that it is ideal for a break from it all. It is in the heart of a village.
