Ditch The Crowd: 5 Quaint Spots To Stay At On Your Next Goan Holiday
If like us, you are fed up of the crowd and are looking at secluded and offbeat places, then we have found the best ones for you. From a heritage fort to a heritage home, we got the scoop on them all.
Olaulim Backyards is where you go to for the simple life. Lovely cottages made with natural elements like mud, hay, etc that overlook the backwaters of Olaulim make for a picture perfect setting. So, take a kayak out, go fishing, or go play with their dogs or even their friendly donkey Mantra. Simple and delicious homemade food, and the lovely couple Savio & Pirkko along with their kids ensure you feel right at home. And there is plenty to do around this place too, just ask them for tips.
Off The Grid Farm is for those who are looking for some adventure along with their stay. This farm is hidden in the jungles at the base of the famous Dugdhsagar falls, ensuring that the waterfall and the stream around the property are always flowing even in the peak summer months. So a dip in the tiny lagoon is definitely recommended, and may make you feel like you are Angelina Jolie in the Tomb Raider. The lovely hosts John & Sylvia grow most of their vegetables at the farm, and have a lovely wood fired pizza oven, wooden log cabins with tiny terraces overlooking the stream and jungle, and can even arrange hikes for you in the forest. And the best part, there no cell phones, no internet and no television at the place, and it runs solely on solar power.
The Figueiredo Mansion in Loutolim is where you go if you want to live like the Mistress of the Manor. Older than even the Taj Mahal, this house is a historical gem. The family has now opened it to guests and even offer a day tour with prior appointments. Check their ballroom or the grand furniture, and eat like royalty while you stay there. The house has tiles imported from Italy, Belgian crystals, fine porcelain from China and so much more, there’s no way you wont feel like royalty here.
