If you are looking to spend a holiday in Goa, then Siolim House is now ready to welcome you.

We are a small luxury "Heritage" Hotel in Goa. We are India's answer to the Paradors and Relais et Chateaux.

Siolim House is a recently restored 300 year old Portuguese era manor house that once belonged to a governor of Macao.

With 275 years of history, Siolim House is an old colonial Goan manor house. Siolim House is one of the few remaining from the 16 - 18th century Indo-Portuguese style of the casa de sobrado, which preceded the casa de patio style.

At one time the house belonged to a governor of Macao, and still has the porcelain china grills that the senhor brought from the east. Later on other members of the family were administrators in Portugese Mozambique, which is where its other name 'Mosmimcar' - The Mozambican, comes from.

Rooms:

The house has seven bedrooms (including two suites) named after trading ports/areas of the 18th century, during the time Siolim House was at its prime.

Each room or suite has attached tastefully designed large bathrooms. There is a large garden with bursting bouganvilla bushes and fragrant trees and a pergola in what we call the "secret garden", a fully equipped kitchen, an inner pillared courtyard with a mosaic fountain and a part that even has a stepwell that provides water for the house.

There are several large halls, and an 12.5 meter overflow swimming pool, great for laps!

There are four guest rooms in the front building and three in the rear around the pillared courtyard.

For your convenience, running hot and cold water shower with good pressure is always available.

About Siolim:

The village of Siolim is situated to the extreme North-West point of the taluka of Bardez, on the left bank of the Chapora river. Siolim is also the last 'bourgeois' village in the north of Goa.

After crossing the Chapora with the ferry the villages are simpler, more rustic. Siolim also provides the quickest escape to the unspoilt northern beaches, including Morjim, Mandrem and Arambol. It is vey easy to get to Siolim, which is only 10 minutes from Mapuça and about 30 from Panjim.

The total population of Siolim is around 12,000, over two communities - Siolim and Marna. It is surrounded by water and the forests of Marna. Siolim is situated about 10 km north of Calagute, and 3 km from Anjuna, just beyond the Siolim range after Vagator. This distance allows it to escape entirely from the tourism-led development of the holiday homes and new constructions of the Calangute area while remaining close enough to benefit from restaurants and action of Candolim, Baga, Anjuna and Vagator.

Siolim was one of the earliest places to come under the domination of the Portugese. In fact the first church in Siolim was built as early as 1568, and was only the fifth church built by the missionaries of the Society of St. Francis of Assisi in Bardez. The first one was that of Reis-Magos built on the right bank of the Mandovi, and thereafter those of Candolim, Nagoa, Salvador do Mundo.

Siolim claim to fame is however its church, St. Antony's. The people believe that the church was the site for two miracles. Of these, the second miracle which occurred in 1600 AD is of great importance for the people of Goa, as it documented as having been witnessed by a large part of the population of the village.

Beaches:

Anjuna:

The hip beach in Goa. Sand and rocky outcrops. Famous for the Wednesday flea market.

Vagator:

Lands end situated at the mouth of the Chapora river. Several secluded areas, and interesting beach shacks.

Calangute and Baga:

Baga lies at the Southern end of the 10 km long beach stretching in a straight line from Sinquerim in the North to Baga at the South. Baga and Calangute are the tourist centers of North Goa, with a variety of restaurants, shops, beach shacks and night life.

Candolim:

More to the North beyond Calangute. White sand, open spaces, interesting evenings.

Morjim (15'):

Secluded, enormous open beach. No, that is not an oxymoron! Soft white, seemingly endless. This is a protected area as it is a Oliver Ridley turtle nesting site. The villagers are now involved and some actively protect, while others actively eat Turtle omlettes! And no, I will not disclose the nesting season in case some of you harbour a taste for omlettes!

Mandrem:

Again secluded (I will not use that word again). Hidden beaches set among palm fringed dunes. Once in a while one spots the odd fisherman or tourist.
