Whilst the interior of the house is delightful, you will find that it is in the beautiful garden overlooking the river, where most of your time will be spent. You can wake up every morning to a lovely river view right from your bedroom windows, and witness a glorious sunrise while sipping an early morning cup of tea in the garden's beautiful dining area right on the bank of the river. The villa offers exceptional value for money with a full maid cleaning service six days a week, fresh linen twice weekly, a washing machine, well-equipped kitchen with a microwave oven etc all included in the price of your holiday. Siesta is part of a beautiful and green condominium of around 70 villas, called Luisa by the Sea, located in South Goa. It offers you the best of both worlds. The tranquil river bank setting of the villa makes it an ideal haven for those in search of peace and quiet, while an easy 5 minute stroll takes you to the famous Cavelossim beach, home to a plethora of beach shacks serving fresh and absolutely delicious food. This beach is wide and almost 25km long unbroken stretch of sand. You and your children can enjoy cycling on the beach, swimming or splashing about in the warm waters, water sports like parasailing and jet skiing, or simply playing in the sand. There are boat tours that will take you out into the sea for a few hours to spot dolphins. And you get to experience amazing sunsets on the beach. Turn right at the main road and within 2 minutes you come to a parade of shops selling a range of wonderful clothes and artifacts you immediately want to take home! There are so many restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walking radius that you can easily try a different one every night of your holiday, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine – Goan, North India, South Indian and Continental. The Radisson Hotel, with its famous nightclub 'Tito's', is almost right outside the gates of Luisa by the Sea. Cycles and scooters (or a taxi) are available for hire just outside Luisa by the Sea. A truly impressive venue that prides itself on offering the highest standards of comfort and style. Peace and quiet, inspirational artistic surroundings and the beauty of nature guarantee an unforgettable experience.More
