A 15 to 20 min drive away is Anjuna beach and Vagator which are quieter. The northern beaches of Mandrem and Ashwem are a 30 ~ 40 min. scenic drive away and here you will find long stretches of nearly deserted beaches and you can discover right on the beach, yoga and Ayurvedic massage parlours and more upmarket retreats.

Ash Vara purchased this apartment in 2010
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.
The central pool and gardens are very beautiful.
Calangte is a major resort town in north Goa, with all mod cons and is about 2 km away. Anjuna Beach is about 10 min by car; Ashwem Beach is about 45 min by car. Panjim, capital city, is about 40 min by car.
