The Only Olive
The Only Olive - a charming Portuguese style villa that gets its name from the olive tree in the garden rumoured to be a hundred years old - like the house itself.
The property has been lovingly refurbished by its responsible owners who have ensured that the villa was restored to reflect its former colonial glory to perfection all the while retaining its inherent Portuguese influences... shell windows and a shared well included.
This Portuguese style house with its airy, high-ceilinged living room is tastefully furnished with a combination of old family heirlooms and restored furniture. The large, formal dining table can accommodate a group of 10. The cool whitewashed interiors give off an aura of peace and serenity - an ideal setting for romance, bonding with friends and family, or a restful holiday. Its three bedrooms ensures spaciousness as well as privacy - an ideal escape from the tourist crowds of Goa.
The Only Olive is situated on a hillock with lovely views of the surrounding village. It is set in canvassed gardens filled with an abundance of sweet scented frangipani and Indian jasmine, interspersed with bamboo, mango, jackfruit, breadfruit, drumstick, cashew trees and of course - the olive tree. For those who love life and nature - it is the perfect place to relax in hammocks and rejuvenate - making the home stay seem like a slice of Portuguese life in Goa.
Guests are encouraged to walk around the picturesque village, go fishing on the river with the village children, enjoy an alfresco bath with water drawn from the well, help water the garden, visit the neighbours who make and sell the best Goa sausages, visit the local village bar for some locally brewed feni, fire up the BBQ and cook your catch, enjoy a beer or a bottle of wine on the patio or relax in a hammock and count the stars... and experience life the way its supposed to be ...SIMPLY.. the real Goan way.
