After the guided tour of the palace, we have lunch on a veranda surrounded by greenery overlooking the peaceful river, amidst the beautiful gardens.

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...
