The Goa/West India region
Goa is known for its relaxed, laid -back atmosphere where u can shop at the fabulous markets, enjoy an alternative life-style making use of traditional healing and massages or enjoy the golf, deep sea fishing or water sports on offer. Or you can simply enjoy walking and swimming beside the 27 kilometers of beautiful golden sandy beaches, stopping off every so often at one of the beach restaurants for a taste of the extensive asian, chinese, goan and sea-food menu.
The magnificent scenic beauty and the architectural splendours of its temples, churches and old houses have made Goa a firm favourite with travellers around the world. But then, Goa is much more than just beaches and sea. It has a soul which goes deep into unique history, rich culture and some of the most beautiful natural scenery that India has to offer.
Much of the real Goa is in its interiors, both inside its buildings and in the jungles away from the coastal area.
Legends from Hindu mythology credit Lord Parshuram, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu with the creation of Goa.
Over the centuries various dynasties have ruled Goa. Rashtrakutas, Kadambas, Silaharas, Chalukyas, Bahamani Muslims and most famously the Portuguese have been rulers of Goa.
Having been the meeting point of races, religions and cultures of East and West over the centuries, Goa has a multi-hued and distinctive lifestyle quite different from the rest of India. Hindu and Catholic communities make up almost the entire population giving it a cosmopolitan outlook which fits well with holiday maker.
Varca, Cavelossim, and Mabor are the most beautiful beaches south of Benaulim. These beaches are much cleaner and quieter than most of the famous beaches of Goa. There are numerous beach restaurants offering a variety of Goan dishes and seafood at reasonable prices.
If you fancy a change the many rivers are available to be explored using a rice boat or traditonal Goan fishing boats where you are fed a 3 course meal on king prawns and sea bass and all the beer u can drink for less than £8.
The cost of living in Goa is a fraction of a normal holiday in Europe and continental food is as widely available as Asian and Chinese due to european influences over the centuries. Fruits and vegetables are very cheap and available all year round as the temperature hovers between 28 -32 degrees Celsius.
These beaches are home to some of the most exclusive and luxurious beach resorts in Goa. Accommodation is also available for budget and economy class travelers though not on the beach itself.
Christian, Hindu and Muslim festivals are all celebrated in Goa so there is always a party to go to or a parade to see. Whether its a trip to the jungle, or the river back waters ,or a visit to the spice farms with elephant transport or up to Anjuna for the live muisic or vast craft markets Goa has it all and many people come back year after year as a result.

"Fabulous relaxing family holiday - didn't want to leave!"
We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week holiday on Varca Beach - glorious sunshine every day with a lovely cool sea breeze - just perfect!
My husband, 4 year old son and I stayed in B4, a 2 bedroom poolside bungalow over Christmas and New Year (our bungalow was painted yellow for comparison to the advert photos.)
The owners, Archie and Jane were very helpful from when we first contacted them via HomeAway.co.uk. Always promptly replying to our e-mails and answering all our questions.
When we first arrived at Tarika Gold Coast Villas, we were a little apprehensive given we were on a dirt track at the rear of the property. However it had been a long journey and we were tired. After a good night's sleep we were able to see the place for what it truly is - a very laid back, quiet and relaxed area that gave us a great family holiday.
In response to some negative reviews - yes, the exterior of the complex is a little run down / looks a little dated, however, you are not paying 5 star rates and therefore you cannot expect the accommodation to be 5 star. I expect Tarika Gold Coast Villas are quite luxurious for local standards - but if you do want UK standards of luxury, you'd be better to book one of the many hotels instead. Inside, our bungalow certainly was not dated (new tv, fully equipped kitchen, large wardrobes in both bedrooms, washing machine etc). It had everything in it we needed and was very clean. The housekeeper Amelia was really lovely and made sure we had whatever we needed. Before we left the UK, we were aware that power cuts are a normal part of life in Goa and many places have back up generators. We did have 3 power cuts during our 2 week stay, however they didn't last for more than a few minutes and then everything was back to normal.
There is also a water filter in the bungalow. We were dubious to begin with and bought bottled water for the first couple of days. However, we then tried the filtered water and had no problems at all. Even though bottled water is very cheap to buy (about 18 pence for a litre bottle), the amount of plastic bottles you go through is concerning, as is seeing a lot of plastic bottles of water to purchase that are sitting out in the sun all day.
There's a great little restaurant, Toncia just outside of the complex where we ate quite a lot, as well as at the various beach shacks. Zumbrai was by far the best shack - lovely owners and great food. The food is very cheap and very fresh and it was great to have so much seafood available.
We took GBP with us and were able to exchange to Rs at all the beach shacks at a live rate which was great. £1 was buying Rs100 while we were there.
The beach is a 5 minute walk from the complex (with a 4 year old in tow). The beach is vast and beautiful. We were looking to escape the crowds and just chill-out as a family and that's exactly what we got. There is plenty of room to play ball or throw a frisbee and not get in anyone's way. The sunbeds are free at all the beach shacks providing you buy drinks or meals there.
We weren't particularly interested in many trips given they would not be very interesting for our son. However, we did want to take him on an elephant ride without doing the tour of the spice farm as well (which you do if you go in an organised group). We booked a taxi and went to Sahakari which was approx. a 40 minute drive away. It cost 700Rs for an adult elephant ride and another 700Rs for an elephant bath. Children under 6 were 400Rs for each. Our son loved it and it was definitely a highlight of the trip.
We have travelled to various countries and always look to go somewhere different. However, we had such a wonderful time in Goa that we would love to return one day. If you do your research and know what to expect when you get there, I'm sure you will have as wonderful a holiday as we did.
Many thanks Archie and Jane and hopefully we will see you again!
Dear Diane - Thank you very much that you have taken the time to leave us a nice review. We are very happy to hear that you have had a nice time in Goa & that you have enjoyed the comfort of our home. It has been a pleasure having you as guests & we hope to be able to welcome you again in Goa in the future. Kind regards & all the best for the future - Archie, Jane & Amelia..........;-)
