The space
Welcome to Manga!

Named MANGA (Mango in Portuguese) after the big mango tree in the villa that offers a generous crop of mangoes every summer, this villa is set in a beautiful, quaint field facing location in Aldona - one of the most beautiful villages in North Goa.

This is is an idyllic getaway that gives you a glimpse of the regular Goan village life. Waking up to birdsong and the honk of the local 'poi' vendor to experiencing verdant paddy fields, you are immersed in tranquillity. Away from the 'happening' Goa and yet accessible to it, if a holiday is meant to recoup, re-energise and most importantly re-tune with yourself and your family and friends; then this is the perfect spot for you! Adding to the charm, there are many scenic walking and cycling routes.
You could also hire a scooter or car and head to the beach or night spot of your choice. We do advise hiring a vehicle to help you move around.

Aldona is one of the most beautiful and charming villages of Goa and has a full fledged market, pharmacy and provision store within 15 mins from MANGA. The 400 + year old St. Thomas Church is worth a visit for it's amazing architecture. There also is a fort located in Corjeum in Aldona. Walking around our village, Panarim will lead you to the most amazing spots and are little discoveries to unfold.

Where you’ll be

Aldona, Goa, India

Aldona is one of the most beautiful villages of Goa. It still retains a charm that seems to be slowly disappearing in the rest of Goa. It also is among the few self sufficient villages with a market that sells fruits, vegetables & meat, a pharmacy and a general provisions store located in the market square. The market is approx 15 mins away from the villa.

Panarim, where Manga is situated is a quiet and scenic village surrounded by paddy fields and a river close by. Dotted by Goan houses, winding roads and a chapel in the vicinity, it offers the real Goan village experience. In the monsoons, paddy is planted in the fields around Manga, turning it into a lush carpet of green.

The historic Aldona church which is 423 years old is located close to the market and is a must visit for its amazing architecture.

Many restaurants like 7 Short 1 Long and ANDRON are close by. Smaller cafes and eateries are also within close proximity.

The nearby village MOIRA is where the CUBE ART GALLERY is located and we recommend visiting it.

Hi! I am Deepa (Dee) and I love meeting new people and experiencing the universal connect that we share. My husband is an architect & industrial designer while I am a PR professional who now likes to dabble in many things. Together, we have created this cosy, warm and intimate space. We have tried to keep your comfort in mind in ensuring that we pay attention to the smaller details. We believe in being kind and hospitable and more importantly accessible since we stay close to the property so are able to assist you anytime and look forward to giving you a glimpse of the 'real' Goa. MANGA is situated in a picturesque village and is ideal for families and small groups of 6 (max8). Away from the 'happening' Goa yet accessible to it, this is your perfect 'sussegad' spot to enjoy the peace and tranquil of a village life, giving you the freedom to choose when you want to reach out to the beaches, restaurants or clubs (we have many suggestions and activities to share with you!). For a couple or a group of 4 wanting to rent the space, do get in touch and we could work out a special rate. At Manga, we recommend waking up early to birdsong, going for long walks past green fields or doing nothing at all! This village has lovely walking and cycling routes. A lot of love and effort has gone into creating this space and we'd like to share this happy vibe and energy with others who value individuality, style and simplicity. See you soon!
