Siolim House, Goa
|Wadi, 403517, Siolim, North Goa, Goa, INDIA.|
Description: Siolim HouseLocated in the heart of the historic town of Siolim, this fabulous property is set in a beautiful heritage mansion, once the property of the Governor of Macau. Originally built in 1675, Siolim House has been painstakingly restored by its present owner, and now offers heritage boutique accommodation in an informal, intimate atmosphere.
More of a private house than a hotel, Siolim House takes pride in its friendly atmosphere and homely accoutrements. Nevertheless, luxurious comforts are not missing in this unique property, and rooms feature magnificent antique furniture, noble timber and antique Portuguese tiled flooring, ceiling fans and cool, crisp fabrics. Siolim House also boasts a large courtyard swimming pool. In keeping with the historic character of the building, superior suites are not air-conditioned - the building's thick walls, high ceilings and heritage floorings mean that air-conditioning is unnecessary.
Siolim House offers guests delicious traditional, home cooked Goan cuisine, based on a mix of Indian spices and Portuguese influences. A finalist for the UNESCO Heritage prize, the house is close to many of Siolim's most important landmarks, including the church of St. Anthony of Padua, just a few steps away from the house, across the road. With many more chapels and temples, the town is also close to some beautiful beaches, the nearest being at Chapora.
