Where would you like your house to be? Not right in the middle of clamor but close enough to the flagships and comfortable living? We thought the same when we bought GOAgaga, a spacious, luxe one BHK villa-apt in Aldeia Siesta, a newly constructed building with a fresh design and open podiums that houses 18 villa apts in Saligao, Bardez, North Goa.

The building is within a 24x7 security kept gated compound with an enticing private pool (and a baby pool end) for you to indulge whenever it suits you. It's extremely safe for families and unchaperoned ladies.

The house is fully equipped with a functional kitchen and the rest of the amenities from a washer to an ironing machine and board. You open the door to a wide porch where you can cozy up in the lounge chairs given by us. From your bedroom you step out to a nice balcony with unbridled view of greens and the blue sky.

GOAgaga is less than 4 km drive from the Calangute/Baga beaches through the winding, uncluttered roads till you reach the Calangute nexus. Rent a bicycle and enjoy the sheer pleasure of riding on the good Goan roads with picturesque views. Or hire a bike or cab and take off to your favorite spots.

Our friend and supervisor is right there to arrange your desired, convenient mode of movement.

Cast in all the peace of rustic living, GOAgaga has grocery stores and home delivery joints nearby to make you completely at ease. It even has fine dining experiences within walking distances.

We're not saying our holiday rental, GOAgaga, is the best. But it's definitely best suited for the kind of stayer in you if these are the features you're looking for.

It adds that little cherry atop your Goan experience!

The Goa region

Imagine an entire village jumping into water bodies in glee and abandon with floral head gears right when the monsoons are on! Well, the Goans do it at the Sao Jao fest to remember John the Baptist's leap in joy in his mother's womb!!

Goans welcome the distinct change of seasons with one festival or the other and most of it is fun that lets you partake of it joyfully! And it's not only Catholic fests that predominate. Some Konkani people (from Goa) have deep roots in Hinduism!

So if you think monsoons and summer are not a good time to hit Goa, you're missing something. Monsoons make the Chorla Ghat magical. This luscious strip, around 40 kms from Panjim, the capital, skirting the border states, reaches the peak of its glory in the rain dance. And summers are the best time to cosy up in the quaint homely interiors of holiday rentals only to step out into the sun-withdrawn beaches cooling your ankles and warming the cockles of your heart...

A long stretch of the Western coast of India juggled by strips of beaches and the hills and greens GOA is soon becoming the calling card of every tourist.

It's a smattering of the 451 year old Portuguese colonial influence and indigenous invasions. Goans over generations have evolved from a bit of this and a bit of that without taking their eyes off the Konkani roots.

Rich in folk traditions and proud in flaunting them Goans are easy going, fun-loving simple folks. The state is now fortunately hand-led by a conscientious administration with an eagle's eye focus on its well-being alone! And this has enriched the tourism industry making the Goan holiday experience holistic for tourists!

So welcome to our robust city!


In the heavy warp and weft of your life Saligao lets you experience a rustic heritage village to chill in North Goa within a 3 km drive from Calangute, the Queen of beaches.

Sal means 'wooded forest' and gao means 'village'.

You'll totally fall in love with the smooth undulating roads that lead to Saligao - a heritage village nestled in paddy fields and coconut groves. The maze of its roads are perfect for a morning and evening bicycle ride.

The 125 year old Mae de Deus parish church with its Gothic architecture is a sheer pleasure to gaze upon. Walking around it one would sense an unusual peace not usual elsewhere.

Cantare, a provincial tavern in a restored old mansion, is an adorable pick for a nocturnal roll. Nibbles and grilled delish rosemary and honey-glazed BBQ chicken capped with your fave drink couldn't taste better in the ambience of live music and kindred folks.

The African origin Chicken Cafreal soaked in the soft juices of the green masala is touted to be one of the best in Florentine - an interesting eat out very close by.

Fifty meters from GOAgaga you've some fine-dining awaiting you from Presa di Goa owned by a gentleman from Luxembourg. Place your order in advance because they cater to limited people and the freshest produce.

The famous monsoon festival Bonderam marked by gaiety and tradition and a lot of folk singing and dancing is hosted in the picturesque Divar Island perched in River Mandovi, and is a gracious neighbor to Saligao!

After all the fun and frolic you've a reason to indulge in the Ayurvedic Massage and Therapy centre which is close to the location.

The sylvan pleasures don't override the feasibility of a practically convenient stay for you in Saligao at GOAgaga. There are enough grocery stores to cater to all your requirements and a high-end supermarket is a just a fifteen mins ride from there. Home delivery joints selling decent Goan fare with excellent ambience are close by. There's medical facility and pharmacy in the vicinity too.

No wonder this pastoral paradise was home to the renowned late artist Francis Newton Souza. It inspires you and prepares you for that true Goan siesta, oh so well!
