About John Hewitt

We originate from the UK but we spend most of the year in South Goa from Sept to April. We came to Goa on holiday and fell in love with it and the people who are very friendly and only too keen to help. Goa has many facets including peaceful, serene beaches and the warm Arabian Sea, colourful night markets, ancient temples and churches and breathtaking views as well as the fascinating wildlife. It's easy to see why we love it here so much!

John Hewitt purchased this villa in 2005

Why John Hewitt chose South Goa

We bought our villa at Tarika Gold Coast Villas in Varca because it is only 300m from the beautiful and secluded Varca Beach and it also has access to a large shared swimming pool. We know the area and the local people quite well. Varca is a small community and is quite remote but it is easily accessed by road. It makes for a very peaceful, de-stressing holiday.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is situated within a gated complex with a landscaped garden. It has parking for a car and or scooter and offers guests or family and friends a holiday of a lifetime in idyllic surroundings. It also gives us the opportunity to live and work amongst the local people of Goa, who we have found to be very happy, friendly and extremely helpful. It's our idea of paradise on earth!

Special interest holidays:

There are various watersports along the beach including jet skis, paragliding, and boat trips and there is plenty of scope for bird watching. Cookery courses can be arranged and Yoga classes are very popular. Fishing trips can also be arranged.

Coast/Beach:

Explore along the South Goa coastline with its stunning white sands and blue seas and you can find many empty peaceful coves for that true 'Touch of Paradise'. For the more daring there are various types of water sports along the beaches including paragliding, jet-skiing, and boat trips to see the dolphins close up in their natural habitat. Dolphin-watching is extremely popular and a great way to experience them is on an early-morning cruise along the River Sal.

Travel:

Dabolim Airport is about 30km from Varca (35 mins by car). Charter flights fly direct to Goa from Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham. Scheduled flights go from London Heathrow via Mumbai. Transfers to and from Dabolim Airport can be arranged at no extra cost. Local taxis (yellow and black) are available at Dabolim Airport which are usually the cheaper option. Margao Station is 2km away as is the bus station. A car is not essential.

Distances:

Varca is a small village in South Goa on the shores of the Arabian Sea. It lies 39 km away from Panaji, capital of the Indian state of Goa and about 1km from the villa. The population of Goa is a mixture of Christian, Hindu and Muslim so festivals are celebrated almost daily giving Goa an almost non stop party atmosphere. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the colourful and exotic night markets where one can buy locally made, hand-crafted artifacts, antiques as well as European goods.

Further Details:

A 10 minute ride into Margao, which is the second largest city in Goa and a centre for travel and commerce. Local and Western goods are available and you will also find banks and Internet cafes. The town has an excellent market area along with a Bazaar that is a labyrinthine covered area that's a rich source of authentic souvenirs and a good place to browse for some bargain shopping. To get a sense of the history of South Goa take a tour to Old Goa with its fascinating temples and churches or visit the Spice Farm and help to bathe the elephants. The waterfalls at Dudhsagar are also a very popular where you can feed the monkeys and then take a jeep ride through the National Park before cooling off in the natural lake at the bottom of the falls. Local supermarkets, chemists, banks (ATMs), opticians etc. can be found in the village of Varca.
