Discover the lively beaches and traditional markets of North Goa from Seashell Villas. This serene complex of 15 holiday homes is located in the historic, beachside town of Candolim, which still showcases architectural examples of colonial Portuguese rule – like the 17th-century Aguada Fort. If you’re craving peace and quiet, this luxury hideaway is ideal: you’ll have your very own two-floor villa and veranda surrounded by well-kept lawns and tall palm trees.
Choose between two or three en-suite bedroom villas. Inside, you’ll find fresh, modern interiors, distinguished by richly textured upholstery, traditional lattice wood furniture and heavy drapes to help you get a sound night’s sleep. Savour a glass of chilled sauvignon blanc on your private balcony overlooking the tiled outdoor pool, before retiring inside to watch a film on your ultra-soft, king-sized bed.
Satiate your appetite at Seashell Villas’ Neptunes Harvest restaurant, which offers Goan, Chinese and Indian cuisine, including an extensive range of vegetarian dishes. Marble walls and warm spotlights are offset by dark wooden beams and tropical greenery, creating an atmosphere that’s simultaneously intimate and airy. If you’d prefer to relax in your villa’s private living room, you can order snacks from the restaurant 24 hours a day (or ask the friendly staff to rustle up a special dish just for you).
