The Portuguese Muse South Goa, Goa
A century old Portuguese house that's been immaculately restored and opened as a luxurious 4 bedroom villa
Just off the coastline near Panjim, this derelict lake-side mansion once belonged to a local Goan Portuguese family until recently when it was secretly bought by a gentlemen and gifted to his daughter.
The Portuguese mansion beckons one from a distance and makes you fall in love with it the minute you begin to get close.
Dreamy-eyed, a young lady set out to restore the villa with a winning team that echoed her vision of retaining the feel of a Portuguese house while infusing contemporary luxuries

The setting within the villa is so enchanting that it’ll be tough to leave this space. And for when that happens, a creative menu focussed on Goan and French food will be on offer.
Choose a dish of your choice and get ready for deliciousness to come your way. We highly recommend the signature freshly caught seafood pasta.
Get served where you please - the formal dining area, the alfresco verandah by the lakeside or by the pool.
The lion fountain has been sculpted by the Goans and painted by the Iranians!
The powder room just at the entrance of the villa feels like secret lounge area
