Figuerido House, Goa

Making a trip to Goa is a great idea during this blessed three-day weekend (especially because it’s the perfect time to travel with the kids during summer break). While we know that stay options are aplenty, we really think you should know about this 100-year-old Portuguese mansion converted into a heritage homestay called the Figuerido House. It’s got character, been around since the 16th century and is in the heart of Goa. Need more reasons?
