Chorao Island is located very close to main Panjim city so local shops, supermarkets, banks etc are a mere 20 min away. INFO ON THE ISLAND The Island Villa is a quaint, warm and gorgeously restored stunning Portuguese house available for long term lease in Goa; set amidst a lot of privacy at 'Itha dos fidalgos' or the 'Island of noblemen' in North Goa all set out for you in one of Goa's most charming and easily accessible island of Chorao. Chorao is not only the winter refuge to glorious migratory birds, but is also a treasure trove for the historically inclined 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. The Island Villa is a truly charming country dream home.... in a mesmerizing village in one of North Goa's most unadulterated areas partly as its still an island. Sitting in the pillared verandah it is easy to get lost in your favorite paperback, while you hear the sounds of chirping birds or see some peacocks dancing across the beautiful landscape in front of you.. 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.

CHILL - RELAX - SWIM - LISTEN TO MUSIC - HAVE A BEER - MAKE A BBQ - READ A BOOK - SKINNY DIP - PLAY SOME GAMES - FRY SOME FISH - SLEEP - TAKE A WALK ON THE ISLAND - SWIM Why this location? Chorao is probably one of the few spots left in Goa that still retains the old world Goan/Portugese charm to quite an extent inspite of being just 20 minutes away from Panjim City. Its a hidden Gem in Goa. There are times where you will not hear the sound of a vehicle buzz past the villa for hours!! Can you beat that? Live in the coast or the cities of Goa and you will go crazy with the noise levels from the streets. Staying in Chorao is like leading parallel lives and one does feel that yes one can have the best of both worlds! We are quite close to Old Goa and Panjim with its heritage architecture, shopping, banks, government offices and lovely restaurants and yet we get to live so close to nature. Unbelievable! The famous beaches of North Goa are also easily accessible via car or bike (30-45 minutes) spend the entire day beach hopping or eating and drinking at the beach shacks and when you are done, retreat back home to the Island Villa. What can you do? Lots to do! Since the island is home to the Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, one can spend some good time exploring the bird sanctuary. Bird lovers can have a busy time observing various kind of birds, butterflies, etc. all over the island – if you are lazy just sit at the property and you have many migratory birds flying over and Peacocks visiting the property often during the winters. The entire island is surrounded by mangroves and with some boat tour operators who operate in the backwaters one could book a boat tour to take guests through the backwaters-the views are amazing and if you are lucky, besides getting lovely views of birds and marine life, you could spot some of the goan breed of muggers or otters. You could choose to be the goan susegad guest!!!! do nothing just laze around the pool, read a book , sip on that cold beer and cook some fantastic local food for lunch or dinner.
