Norman and Carol are great hosts: kind, and fun, and informative, but never over-intrusive. Their garden is gorgeous and our rooms were comfortable. The place is run with calm efficiency. Best moment: I was swimming in their pool and watching monkeys playing in the trees.

If there was one word to describe South Goa, it would be ‘Laid-back’. Known of its unhurried lifestyle, tranquil beaches, and exotic villas, South Goa has everything on cards that attract tourists from all over the world. This side of Goa is a quintessential destination for tourists. South Goa is the reliable source to estimate the rich Portuguese architectural legacy that has been left behind from almost 500 years. Offering some of the best experiences that are perfect for romantic escapes, surreal villages that are quiet the place for the ones who love architecture, and an intoxicated air that keeps the ambiance enlivened all the time, South Goa is the destination that you cannot simply ignore. Loutolim is a tiny village in South Goa just around 40 mins ride from Vasco, and about 30kms from the capital, Panaji. Once you search about Loutolim, you will come across its finest Goan architecture and historical houses. As we set our feet to explore this (majorly unseen) part of Goa, we stayed at a beautiful home called ‘Casa Susegad’ for a couple of nights. Casa Susegad is a restored colonial mansion house in Loutolim, South Goa. Set in one and a half acres of grounds, in a quiet corner of the village, the place is surrounded by jungle and beautiful landscapes. The Tranquil House If you believe in the term ‘home away from home’, then Casa Susegad is an ideal home for you to visit. Enjoy all of the luxuries, privileges, and comfort of a magnificent 17th century residence at the same place. Casa Suesegad: The word ‘susegad’ has had many local meanings, from contemplative to downright lazy. It is a Konkani term, derived from the Portuguese word ‘sossegado’, meaning restful or tranquil. The word ‘Casa’ means house. Trust us, if you are living in Casa Suesegad, then you are not living in an ordinary Goan hotel or home-stay. Wake up to the sound of birds, lie down on sun-beds beside the pool, sip some amazing freshly brewed coffee, and enjoy some local sweets, or just listen to music by sitting at the vibrant bar while enjoying a glass of wine – the choice is yours. We’re sure this lovely place will fulfill all your desires. Carole & Norman are an enthusiastic couple who own this beautifully restored house. 14 years back, they moved from England to Goa, and started with this lovely place to attract guests from all over the world! The Villa Casa Suesegad is beautifully restored and classically designed by Carole & Norman. The restored heritage Villa comprises of five bedrooms that are aesthetically done with antique Indian furniture, offering a perfect blend of comfort and luxury! The Villa retains elements such as teak ceiling beams and the 400-year-old mosaic tile floors, amazing in their intricacy. Each comfortable and inviting room has its own colour theme; every aspect of the home provides pleasure, from the gorgeous antique furniture brought from Rajasthan, to the unobtrusive yet pampering staff who are akin to family members. Boasting over an acre of fabulous natural gardens and outdoor pools, cozy bar, ponds and waterfalls, make it a truly unique property in the heart of Goa. The use of shocking splurge of colors at various corners of the villa adds an extra ordinary charm to the villa. With the large guest lounge, formal dining room, the balcao and the activities/snooker room, guests have ample space to roam and relax indoors. Years of experience in interior design and property renovation are evident in the vibrancy of Carole’s trademark colour palette, making Casa Susegad a truly unique property! Don’t be surprise if you can’t stop clicking here! It’s totally Instagram-worthy! Our favorite spot in the Villa: The Electric Blue colored House Bar with generous windows and window seats, it makes for a delightful indoor/outdoor room supplying both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, poolside during the day and pre-dinner cocktails early evening. CAROLE and NORMAN This lively couple are hands down the coolest hosts we have ever met in our lives! Carole & Norman are two beautiful souls with whom we spent our 3 days at this property. From taking us around the Villa to sharing laughter, from enjoying delicious meals & wine, to helping us explore the hidden gems Loutolim, they ensured we had the most amazing stay of our lives! If you ask us, they are the heart and soul of this house. Eventually, we enjoyed our conversations with them more than exploring the neighborhoods. Their warm and welcoming house epitomizes the art of elegant idleness, whether you travel as a couple or group of friends, you will feel at home. And if you think, only Carole and Norman stay in this house, then you are wrong. They are big family with 4 cats, 4 dogs, and the entire team of cooks and caretakers with whom they share every moment of their life. Spending your day with them will not only make your hearts lighter, but you will have a memory to cherish for long time. Soul Food Carole and Norman consider feeding their guests very seriously. Pro-tip: You just CANNOT miss the food here! The food served at Casa Suesegad is one of the major highlights in making our stay worth remembering. Let us warn you, you will be spoilt for choice here! The food team, headed by Chef Joanita, works magically in presenting you scrumptious meals with the freshest of ingredients & perfectly balanced spices majority of which are sourced within the village. Everything is organic here, and meals are prepared in the well-equipped, large kitchen or over a traditional wood fire. From fusion breakfast dates in the bar area, formal dinner plans to enjoying your meal lazing around the pool area, you can enjoy your meals at your favorite corner of the house. The menu can be customized ranging from traditional Goan cuisine, Indian dishes to Continental fare! Food is discussed with, what is effectively, your own private chef at breakfast every day, and then meals are prepared to suit your personal tastes. They also have a beautiful dining room in the house where you can prefer having your lunch and dinner with the hosts. Must-try: Fresh Salads & Suesegad Special Eggs! Activities The area abounds with wildlife, from monkeys swinging through the mango, spice, and cashew trees to extensive bird-life watching. A walk around the property and through the surrounding forest trails with Norman is filled with fun, and is always interesting. Since the place is amidst nature, it is a blessing for yoga enthusiasts. Beauty treatments and massage are also available in the property from highly qualified visiting Ayurvedic masseuse. Carole and Norman, along with their family, at Casa Susegad are a prime example why we prefer such stays more than hotels and resorts. It is the 'connect' with (such) people that counts more than any comfort in the world (which most of 5-star luxury hotels and resorts lack at this time). No matter where on Earth you travel, people are the real face of that place. Your experience with them, makes you visit that place again and again. This lovely couple is the USP of this house, and that's what makes Casa Susegad a special place for a lovely, romantic, joyful outing with anyone you choose!

Dearest Mona and Chintan, Casa Susegad gives us such beautiful gifts; in particular all of the people who come to stay - and you guys will always be very high on the list of such treasures. You filled our spaces with joy and laughter and took photographs from unusual angles and helped us to, once again, appreciate our little piece of paradise anew. Thank you for your kind words and the gift of your presence. Long may your travels prosper and bring you joy!, love from Carole and Norman

After a week staying in noisy, busy Candolim (north Goa), it was a relief and joy to spend a few days of elegant idleness at Casa Susegad, a gentle reminder of Goa how it used to be. Quiet, peaceful village avenues, with magnificient old colonial architecture on display at nearly every turn, only disturbed by barking dogs or the bakery wallah announcing his presence. Carole and Norman were extremely hospitable and welcoming, thanks for introducing us to your local yoga teacher, your favourite jeweller, and numerous other helpful tips. Thanks also to Juanita and the kitchen staff for some wonderful, tasty meals, providing us with lovely vegan options on request, and the thoroughly enjoyable cooking lesson for pork vindaloo. A beautiful, tranquil haven of respite from the madness of touristy Goa (Calangute, Anjuna, Palolem etc). Highly recommended, a truly exotic location to watch the 2019 Rugby World Cup final.

Thank you Jeff and Jenny. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is always a joy to share the less touristy face of Goa with those who appreciate the way things were. The village of Loutolim, with its shady lanes and hidden paths, does stir the senses and the ancient Indo Portuguese architecture reminds one of years long gone, yet at a gentle pace. We very much enjoyed your visit and look forward to entertaining you and your friends and family in the future.

Casa Susegad in the heart of Goa was the idyllic location chosen to host the pilot international wellbeing retreat of Maelo Therapies in collaboration with Little Buddha Therapies. Set in nearly two acres of forest and jungle the Indo-Portuguese house has been lovingly restored by owners Norman and Carole Steen, with en suite and air-conditioned bedrooms – each featuring bespoke antique furnishings – a sight to behold. A swimming pool gives guests the chance to cool down in the heat or have a relaxing swim, while the lovely sunbeds offer a comfortable place to lie in the sun or shade and chill, reflect or read. From the top down, all of the people that are the heart of Casa Susegad are friendly, warm and very accommodating, helping our guests feel at ease from the start. The food on offer is international cuisine with an Indian twist and all locally sourced. The chef, Joanita, together with Carole, was more than able to offer pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan alternatives. There is a Jopri situated in the jungle away from the house where reiki, reflexology and massage was practiced to the background music of the birds and jungle wildlife. Both Keturah (Little Buddha Therapies) and guests found this very relaxing and private. I chose to use a dedicated relaxation area in the forest to work on EFT and matrix re-imprinting with our guests. This too was beautifully quiet. Under the gently swaying palm trees is the large yoga floor which could easily accommodate 12 guests if needed. Here we did our morning meditation in the swirling early mist, to the sound of the Langur monkeys. Afternoon yoga was offered in the dappled shade of the overhead tree canopy. Our guests were able to go for the short walk to the local village of Loutolim and Casa Susegad assisted in arranging additional excursions to the nearby city of Margao to experience the hustle and bustle of the city, its people, bright colours and of course its market. Then it was off to Utorda Beach for sunset cocktails with dinner at award winning seafood restaurant Zeebop’s. The final arranged excursion was to south Goan beach, Palolim for the day. Everybody enjoyed a relaxing swim in the sea and a potter around the lovely little market before sampling the local cuisine for lunch and finally hopping back aboard our marigold-bedecked minibus back to Casa Susegad for our last evening meal together before guests began their journeys home. Keturah and I absolutely loved Casa Susegad with its stunningly beautiful rooms and grounds. Feedback from our guests was very positive regarding all of the therapies, the excursions on offer, the venue and its facilities. It is very well suited for a luxury yoga or gentle mindfulness retreat where guests can comfortably share a room (sleeps 5-10). Casa Susegad does have a wonderful yoga instructor available who I would highly recommend. They can also arrange various massage, facials etc in the Jopri should this be something you might want to add into your retreat package. One of our guests wanted to stay on a few days after the retreat and Casa Susegad was able to accommodate this. Prana Wellbeing Retreat arranged its own program of events and Casa Susegad offered the platform to deliver a wonderful experience to our guests. Many thanks to Norman, Carole and their wonderful team. Namaste!

Casa Susegad was recommended and didn't fail to disappoint. My friend and I were the only guests and we had some issues with a cancelled flight back to Mumbai which Norman helped us out with by suggesting various ways of solving the problem. He also suggested we visit Casa Figueiredo in the village. A Goan-Portuguese mansion still occupied by the original family which was very interesting for my Portuguese friend. We were given a choice of rooms on arrival and the pool was delightfully refreshing. We chose the 'continental' dinner as a break from Indian cuisine which was tasty and well cooked. Undoubtedly the price of a meal here is not comparable to a local restaurant but I can appreciate that the costs of running the place are quite high. All in all it was a welcome break from the beach shack we had been living in for a week in Palolem and I would have happily stayed a second night. Thank you Norman for all your help and hospitality!
