  • The historic residence of an 18th century clergyman perfectly renovated (up to the Windows topped with oyster tiles, perfectly restored) on the banks of the river Kushavati, nestled amidst a nature of extraordinary biodiversity Plant and animal. After the guided tour of the palace, we have lunch on a veranda surrounded by greenery overlooking the peaceful river, amidst the beautiful gardens. After a glass of a mocktail made with the fruits of the garden, we are served a menu-tasting of authentic Indo-Portuguese cuisine. An exceptional experience!

  • Absolutely stunning property. Ruben gave us a tour of his home which he and his wife have lovingly restored . They have given lots of detailed attention to each and every aspect while restoring this heritage property. The oyster shell window panes , the furniture , the gardens to mention a few. His wife cooked a fabulous seven course lunch and each one was a delightful culinary experience.Ruben and his wife are wonderful hosts. We will definitely be going back. Best wishes from, Capt.Vikas Gokhale and family.
  • You have to visit this place for its atmosphere. I wish I could stay here for a nap. Delicious food served in the veranda. Friendly tour of the house. Everything just so idyllic...
