Our stay was perfect in every way. Food was great, ambience was terrific, the people were excellent, rooms (some dating back 400 years, but perfectly restored) were pristine. Many thanks to the host and his family for a wonderful stay. Wish to visit again soon.

Description
Casa Menezes – The Heritage Home stay of Goa, a home away from home, an experience like no other, nestled in the rustic lush greens of the Batim village, just 13 kms away from Panjim. Thankfully it is one of those ...More villages in Goa that is still stuck in time, and we don’t intend to change that characteristic feature of this tranquil haven. Come experience true Goan Heritage. Perched in the valley of the Pilar and Santa Ana hillocks. The house is situated in ‘Gaunkarwaddo’ of the larger village of Batim. It overlooks paddy fields bordered with tall coconut palm trees. A scene around the whole village, take a walk around and you will soon discover the ‘Our Lady of Guardalupe’ church, the Parish church of the Batim village, A few steps ahead would take you to the Batim Lake, a bird watchers paradise, this lake attracts a lot of migratory birds. Wander around and amaze yourself with the simple pleasures life has to offer. While staying with us, we assure to make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated in this 300 year old ancestral home of ‘de Menezes’ family, replete with teak, oak and rosewood carved antique furniture, original art and virtuoso regal interiors combined with all the modern amenities needed to make this one of your most cherished holiday experiences ever! Guests can cycle around the village, go bird watching at the Batim lake, try their hands at salt harvesting at the local salt pans,walk up to the famous miraculous St.Simon and Jude church in Maina to appease their spiritual yearnings. Drive to the Santa Ana church believed to be one of the Oldest churches in Asia or to Siridao beach to bask on the sand and soak yourself in the waves of the Arabian sea. We also serve the most scrumptious breakfast complimentary , and our guests can pre order their meals for authentic home cooked Portuguese/Goan and Indian cuisine. The adventurous few can avail of the various trekking packages available. We believe in letting the home speak for itself, assuring you of the best hospitality allowing you to experience the true goan heritage that will leave you susegado, come unwind in the balcao.
