A great place to unwind and recharge your soul. The rustic ambience, the beautiful lines of this old Portuguese house will definitely make you feel like a native and at home. All in all a superb home stay experience. We are definitely coming back.

Reviewed January 20, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Ever since I set my eyes on The Olive in its website, I had wanted to stay there. It looked just the kinda place I would think of as a getaway, and that was what I had craved.

Nothing disappointed me ever. The villa has an exuberance of positive energy, love and warmth hanging around, it instantly calmed me – sort of removed me from reality. The antique furniture and the curios add much story-like charm to the house and it’s so damn cool and lovely within and without the house. You’re spoilt for choice when you step out and look around at the greenery. Inside the house I loved the four poster bed and the arm chair. The white, silk sheers around the four poster cot make it so romantic and the cot itself looks like an invaluable museum piece.

It’s so functionally and aesthetically located, so much that it’s just a lucky choice if you opt for it. We had a great time exploring the river side and walking around. We walked up to the local market, which is so close by, where you can begin and end your meals if you want. Such a thorough rustic experience. The bebinca and dos from Sebros are very good. Eating at Andron was delightful!!

Santhosh the caretaker and his family are really adorable. He’s a lovely cook, a simple daal bhaat or poha tastes delish. The drinking water tastes pure.

I stepped into this villa and I had this wave of contentment wash me over. It’s a great inland experience. And if you want the typical beaches (Baga, Calangute) just drive or bike over for 20 mins or so.
