One friday night we suddenly planned to visit Goa and we made all our bookings and reached Cancio's house the next day. Late in the friday night we called Roberto and he arranged our pick up for us for the next day. Once we reached Cancio's house we realised what the regualr toursits visiting only the beaches are not aware of. To call their 5 century old house 'Amazing' will not be enough. It was aboslutely green everywhere, trees and plants and their Dog Jes, 2 cats... a perfect house. When we reached me and my wife both were hungry and we were treated with a fabulous chocloate cake which we can never forget. Both Roberto and Raquel are such nice and warm people that it surprises us that such people really exist. We met Robertos mom for the days breakfast and she had amazing tales to tell us. B'fast was lovely which we have on Sunday and Monday mornings.. nice eggs, local bread, patty- veg and chicken, juice, tea. My wife would have happily taken cooking lessons from Raquel. What amazing cook she is. We were also invited for lunch by the family. A nice lunch with them and Raquel prepared Chicken lever specially for my wife. That was really sweet of her, we had a chocolate desert after our lunch which was again very very nice. Roberto took us around couple of times and showed different places to us, he also showed his Yatch to us, which he manages. We never expected such good hospitality. We will go back again for sure.
Now coming to the room in the guest house. It was a big sized room with 32 inch tv, very nice old double bed, tea/coffee machine and all other basic stuff. It has a small sitting space outside and nice view from window. It rained for 2 days and we enjoyed sitting their and listening to the sound of rain and looking at the greenery. It was so nice and relaxing, away from hustle and noise from city traffic. There was no discturbance at all and aboslutely peaceful.
Also the driver arranged for our local trips by Roberto was very well trained and behaved.
We cannot find any short comings and highly recommend this place.
Our good wishes to the family for doing such a wonderful job.
