Candolim, Goa, India
Candolim is a village in the northern part of Goa and is on the southern side of the very popular Calangute Beach.
The storic town is a gentle introduction to North Goa’s charms. Home to some 10,000 residents, and one of the more laid-back spots on this palm-clad stretch of coastline. Unlike its bold neighbor, Calangute, Candolim always keeps its cool, which is why couples, families and more mature travelers keep returning here year after year. This peaceful town is also a big hitter when it comes to mouthwatering North Indian dishes and shopping.
A 20-minute drive and a short ferry ride away is Panaji, Goa’s fascinating capital. It’s a clash of civilisations, where Portuguese architecture meets Hindu temples and pulsating street markets. The Goa State Museum houses an eclectic collection of local art, photography and sculpture.
Surrounded by coconut trees on the riverside deck Moon River villa is ideal for a getaway and the ideal complement to the hustle and bustle of other parts of India.
The recently furnished 4-Bedroom contemporary house is designed for entertaining, sophisticated living and family gatherings. Featuring panoramic windows for unforgettable riverfront experience, the property offers spacious living room and kitchen, neutral decor throughout with gorgeous traditional Indian artifacts.
Only 5 minutes from the beach, it is a great place for exploring this special part of Goa.
