Excellent location. Close to Candolim, Calangute and Baga and yet far enough away to remain an oasis of peace and tranquility. The house, gardens and pool are superb; exceeding our wildest expectations. What really made the difference though was Salam, the housekeeper. A great host and excellent cook who looked after our every need, including the speedy facilitation of medical treatment for one of our party. Over the years we've traveled frequently, but never returned to a destination. Why would you, when there is so much more in the world to see? But Goa, Villa Salmona and most of all Salam have changed that. We've only been back two days and we're already planning our return.
