Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In our constant quest for interesting holiday homes we were thrilled to be offered a property on “SOL-itude” which is a collection of courtyard villas and apartments in Candolim built around a swimming pool and only 500 metres from the beach. The distinctive architecture and contemporary styling gives SOL-itude what can be best described as “Mediterranean with a dash of panache”. Having stamped his style on the exteriors, the builder then adopted a refreshingly different approach by leaving the owners to personalise the interiors of their properties resulting in flair and individualism.
The owner of Sacada has continued the theme of sleek, clean lines by decorating the apartment in subtle neutral tones with wooden flooring in the two bedrooms, off- white tiles in the living and dining space and accent colours of fuchsia pink and turquoise. The décor is completed with comfortable straight-lined corner seating, a wood and stainless steel coffee table and beds on trendy low wooden platforms.

The en suite bathrooms are particularly distinctive with rain showers set in metallic wall tiles, suspended glass tiled ceilings and contemporary Italian fittings. The kitchen is compact and functional and metallic tiles have again been used.
The overall effect is “Manhatten” style in Goa.
The mood changes to outdoor living as you go onto the balcony. Here there is are chairs and sofa; ideal for relaxing in and contemplating going for that swim.
SOL-itude is walking distance to the beach and it is centrally positioned for the shops and restaurants of both Candolim and Calangute. A number of very popular restaurants are near by – from the famous “Bob's Inn” to one of the best continental restaurants in Goa “After Seven”. If you want something more casual then there are the traditional shacks built every year on the beach which serve fish and Goan specialties and are great for a beach barbecue.
The Goa/West India region
Goa, on the west coast of India, has over 100 Kilometres of coastline divided between secluded bays and golden sandy beaches lapped by the warm Arabian sea. Between October and April there is unbroken sunshine with temperatures that rarely drop below 91F. The pace of life is relaxed. You can spend your evenings enjoying a sunset walk along the beach or a stroll through the street markets in safety.
Although most people come to Goa to relax and unwind there is more to Goa than just its fabulous beaches. Here are a few ideas of what Goa has to offer.
The Portuguese colonised Goa for 450 years and this unique blend of Portuguese and Indian culture is evident in its architecture, mix of religions, cuisine and social structure. There are the colonial old quarters, the magnificent Mansion Houses built at the height of the Portuguese rule and Old Goa, the old capital, built as a testament to the Portuguese wealth and power. There are wildlife sanctuaries, over 400 different species of birds, market towns, a famous flea market which attracts sellers from all over India, designer shops and why not come at Christmas and the Easter Carnival and enjoy some real Goan-style dances. The exuberant Hindu festivals of Divali and Holi are celebrated with as much enthusiasm by this multi-cultural and well-integrated society.
We want to show people that there are many interesting "things to see". Above all experience Goa by being out and about. Early morning and late afternoon are perfect times for catching that magical rural scene of bullock cart and driver ambling along country lanes or the water buffaloes having their well deserved mud baths. Watch the sun rise over the river Sal, stand at Chapora harbour and select fish for that evening's meal, fresh from the boats, go to a village festival or Zatra and most of all, meet the people who are fun loving, generous and genuinely want you to have a great holiday.
Candolim village gives its name to the magnificent stretch of golden sand beach on which it is situated. The beach here is wide and sandy not crowded even at peak times and perfect for lazing away your days under a sunshade.
The area is well connected by bus and there are plenty of taxis, although in the village itself you will find everything you need. From the vegetable and fish market, small supermarkets, ice cream parlour and the colourful shops selling jewellery clothes and trinkets, everything is on hand. There are restaurants to suit every taste from Tandoori, Chinese, Continental, Goan and North Indian and many have live music.
