Chorao is not only the winter refuge to glorious migratory birds, but is also a treasure trove for the historically inc-------d as well, as it was amongst the first places to be captured by the Portuguese and is abound with whitewashed churches including the majestic 16th century church of Sao Bartholomew (just across which this villa is situated), as well as exquisite old goan houses! It is one of the most untouched areas of Goa, thus providing a perfect getaway, far away from the maddening crowds where one can soak in the true tradition of Goan village-life and experience the soothing sounds of nature. Yet it is located very close to all the action, Old Goa with its Se Cathedral is a 25 min drive. The happening beaches of North Goa are a 30 min drive and Panjim and its old town area are again just 20 min away.
This is a perfect spot for those looking for a holiday with nature and in the true Goan village lifestyle, yet never being too far from the white sands of the beaches and the city. The mansion is the perfect getaway for a peace and quiet lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle, noise and pollution from the cities or coastal belts.
