On a sunlit early evening, we were swinging on a hammock of an ancient villa in Goa. Blithe and bursting with weekend calm, we lazed around with a book in the front yard of the villa.
Though the villa is a little rusty and not as comfortable as any of the Goa resorts, it still has an air of ancestry.
Styled in the Portuguese fashion, the story says that it has been owned by women for the last 4 generations.
Currently under the supervision and care of a caretaker, it is perfect for a laid back weekend.
Somewhere between lazing on the hammock and silence of the villa, we could hear our stomach’s growling.
We decided to ditch the caretaker’s lunch menu and took a stroll on the curvy narrow roads of Goa that were leading to Anjuna beach. Artjuna café is great for a healthy breakfast and loaded with expats.
You are welcomed by a photo wall that extends to a little clothes cave.
Run by Moshe & his wife Anastasia, it houses designer jewelry, home décor antics, leather bags, and several unique accessories. The café is over 10 years old and exhibits old world charm.
After delighting your taste buds with a great meal, you can run around the sand pit.
We were back at the villa and later decided to visit Curlies that evening. If hippie parties are your thing, then this is the place to be on a Saturday evening.
Concealed with neon bands, lights & everything under the sun, Curlies Goa shimmers all night long.
After the party, grab some eggs, maggi, and tea on the beach cooked by Goan aunties. There are plenty of options to check out.
As the music faded into the sound of the waves, we hardly remember how we got back to the villa.
