  • Interesting Portuguese house. Nice owner of the house. This house is amidst the rice paddy fields. Very far in the interiors from the town.
  • 200 plus years old mansion with lush gardens...portuguese legacy revisited...must visit while in south goa
  • It looks great from outside, I've never been gone inside it, it's said that Portuguese had built that palace
  • They also serve food, if informed in advance. I could not enjoy the food, as we did not inform. earlier.
  • A wonderful couple runs this operation (de Gama) and they offer an amazing lunch. The Palácio is spectacular with wonderful views too.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
