Why Ash Vara chose Arpora
We wanted a winter vacation home - I have respiratory issues in winter. We holidayed in Spain, Portugal and Goa. I liked Goa - excellent weather and something different. This property is in a very quiet location and yet is close to all the local shops/dining. It is only 2 Km from Baga Beach and close to all the amenities in North Goa.

our stay in india
well, I got biten to death by insects.we was totally boiled in the the hot sun and we got soacking wet in the rain. would we go back, oh yes. we have fallen in love with india. our friend and guide took us to temples, the zoo, baga beach, calangute beach, 2 boat rides.we tried indian food, which was wonderful, sometimes a little to hot. we did more walking than I have ever done in my life. we went up steps, down steps, up and down hills. my brother and I r both disabled, but nothing was going to stop us. one day we hope to go back to arpora. I had a very bad reaction to the insect bites, but it was worth it. the apartment was very clean and had ac. the people in india were so friendly and helpful. my brother wasn't biten at all. maybe the insects just liked me. the temples were so wonderful. .
