Located in the village of Salvador do Mundo, near Porvorim in Torda, Goa, this peaceful property is surrounded by thick greenery. This bungalow enclave is situated five minutes` walk from the well-know Goan architect Gerard da Cunha`s quirky `Houses of Goa Museum`, and next to an idyllic stretch of backwaters, along which residents can peacefully stroll. The village, located approximately 5 kilometres from Goa`s capital, Panaji, and 10 kilometres from Mapusa, is free of tourists, revellers and other transient influences, preserving its quiet, slow-paced and quaint Goan way of life. At the same time, conveniences like supermarkets, restaurants, hospitals, salons and lifestyle stores are within a 5 kilometre radius, and the village is not too far from National Highway 17, making it conveniently accessible from the Candolim-Baga beach belt, and Goa`s airport and railheads.
