Villa Alina (whole house only)
Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 14
WHOLE HOUSE ONLY - MINIMUM STAY 4 NIGHTS - BED & BREAKFAST OTHER MEALS SELF-CATERED. The Villa has five large en-suite bedrooms and can easily sleep twelve people depending on group size and number of children. The living room is located at the centre of the house with Tata/Sky satellite TV. The beautiful back veranda is the perfect setting for Al fresco dining with a table and seating for twelve people and more. There is nothing better than relaxing on the antique bed swing which we sourced from a Maharajah's Palace. The perfect place to enjoy the famous Goa sunsets is on 'The Balcony' which can be reached via a spiral staircase from the back veranda. After a hard day at the beach and a wonderful warm shower, enjoy a sundowner whilst gazing at the stunning sunset. Life is good! There is a large infinity swimming pool (12m x 6m) with a large sunbed area and sunshades. Our beautiful infinity pool is for the exclusive use of the guests. The dilemma is whether to hang around the pool or take a three minute walk to the sea and beach with its amazing bars and restaurants. The house has 2 fitted kitchens with granite worktops, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridges & water coolers. The house is fully staffed with maid, cleaner and house manager who provide outstanding service. We do not have a cook. You can use the kitchen to provide your own meals.
This house is ideal for extended family and joint family holidays. An ideal place to relax and recharge your batteries and discover Goa at a languid pace.

The Goa/West India region
The best time to visit Goa is from late October to the end of February when the post monsoon period brings long sunny days with temperatures around 30ºC during the day and around 25ºC in the pleasant evenings. This period is very popular because of the wonderful weather and the safe swimming by the great beaches. Air conditioning is usually unnecessary until March.
The perfect weather continues until the middle of April when humidity begins to rise sharply and the temperature increases to an average of 35ºC. By May, many of the seasonal shops, restaurants, beach shacks and other facilities that are generally available during the peak season will close down until October. Of course, global warming has had an impact on Goan weather over the last few years, with some rainfall sometimes occuring until the beginning of November.
A former Portuguese colony, the state of Goa is located on the western coast of India in the coastal belt known as Konkan.
The state of Maharashtra borders Goa on the north, the state of Karnataka on the south and east, and the vast expanse of the Arabian Sea on the west forms the magnificent coastline for which Goa is justly famous.
Portuguese merchants first landed in Goa in the 15th century and annexed it soon after. This Portuguese colony existed for about 450 years until it was taken over by India in 1961.
Today, it is not just the familiar remnants of Portuguese colonialism or the picture-book Indian exoticism that makes Goa so accessible, the Goans themselves are extremely welcoming and have a very relaxed outlook on life......and which is happily contagious while holidaying there!
Internationally renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches, Goa is visited by many foreign and domestic tourists each year and has become one of the most popular holiday destinations for European travellers, particularly during the Northern hemisphere winter. There are beaches to suit everyone, from tranquil to lively, with gourmet shack restaurants and a multitude of water sports.
Besides beaches, Goa is also known for its world heritage architecture including the Basilica of Bom Jesus in Old Goa.The Fontainhas district of Panaji, the capital, is a heritage area where you can still see Portuguese architecture as it existed during the colonial reign. Narrow streets are fringed with old houses sporting the most dazzling colours - a throwback to the times of the Portuguese who insisted that the walls of each house be freshly painted after every monsoon - except for the churches, which got the mandatory white-wash. Goa also has rich flora and fauna, owing to its location on the Western Ghats range, which are classified as a biodiversity hotspot.
The allure of Goa is that it remains quite distinct from the rest of India and is small enough to be grasped and explored in a way that other Indian states are not.
From November to March the weather in Goa maintains a steady, relaxing course, with temperatures staying between 25°C (77°F) and 30°C (86°F).
It is a truly breathtaking experience to watch the hot sun setting in splendour every evening over the tranquil Arabian Sea. Goa is definitely worth a visit and Villa Alina is the perfect luxury villa to rent!
Calangute is a busy town on the beach in Central Goa. The Villa is situated between Calangute and Candolim Villages. The beach is quieter than the main village beaches with a lively beach shack scene - free sunbeds, pool, carum, authetic Goan food, great selection of fish, cocktails, etc. Some of the shacks are open for late night drinks and barbques.
There are numerous quality restaurants (indian, italian, oriental) cocktail bars, bars, Sports TV Bars, shops close to the Villa along Holiday Street.
