About Atul Sarin

My business partner Pierre and I, Atul, moved over from the UK four years ago, for the weather,the people, and to be with nature. So far no regrets. We lovingly restored this beautiful house and garden, and built an additional Bungalow in the grounds. I am told I am a good cook, so we offer cookery demonstrations after which the end results are consumed! I also provide expert wildlife tour advice, since I am a keen environmentalist. Pierre on the other hand offers guided tours of "Shopping in Panjim", a big hit with the ladies. We have 3 friendly staff on our team, not to forget 3 friendly dogs and 2 cats!

Special interest holidays:

The Bungalow is Unique, as we also double up as an Animal Rescue Centre. Guests are welcome to help comfort our animals.

We are keen nature lovers and can help organise wildlife tours and amazing trekking through the old teak forests in Karnataka or Kerala.

On the other end of the spectrum, "designer shopping days" be it for furniture or clothes, can also be arranged by Pierre who has become an expert on Panjim.


Morjim beach, a pristine turtle nesting site is approx 5km away, 15 mins by bike or car. Vagator beach approx 5km away.


Approx 40km North from Dabolim Airport, airport pick up can be arranged. Once here, car or bike hire recommended, but not essential, local taxis readily available and not expensive.

By rail, Tivim is the nearest station, about 20km away.


Shops walking distance, Main Cathedral 1km away. The picturesque river and paddy fields, and sunset coves are all within walking distance.

5kms away, is also the "wild west" village of Chapora, a contrast with Siolim, with many noisy bars and eateries, including excellent Pizzas and Greek kebabs.

Further Details:

Siolim is famed for its beautiful local Hindu and Christian Festivals, which seem to average once a week!. However, it can be a sleepy town, with 2 small restaurants. Evening meals can be arranged for. Please note, its not a touristy town, the local temple and dogs can occasionally be noisy at nightimes.
