Visited the Amarals at the end of April! We were consciously looking for a quiet cottage away from the beaches and we got all this and more! The cottages are lovely and well designed with a small sit-out area. The Gardens are lovely with lots of birding activity. Bird baths have been placed at multiple locations and I understood the...

Enjoyed our stay and couldn't have been better without the family. Roberto is an amazing host and can be talkative at times but we loved you. And Raquel has advanced and innovative baking skills because of whom now I get some mouth watering oatmeal muffins every now and then from Priya, my wife.

Ah!! Writing this brings a smile on my face! Because I get to relive an excellent vacation! Beach, Party and an opportunity to return home tanned, this is what happens at Goa right? How about an idyllic holiday and a chance to experience a Goa you have never seen before? Lying in the quiet village of Aldona, you will find...

I cannot not write a beautiful review for such beautiful, special people and such a great home. Having said that I don’t think my review will do justice to my stay with the Amarals at Cancio’s House. I have been here several times; both with family and friends and have had the chance to stay in both the ancestral home...

My husband and I had a chance to experience the wonderful homestay with Roberto, Raquel and family in Feb 2017. Aldona gave us the flavor of a different Goa altogether, beyond the beaches. We got to see things we had no idea existed in Goa - such as backwaters, rock-cut caves, waterfalls. Aldona is a quaint, serene and laid back...

I went in solo for a weekend's stay at Cancio's and came back having gained a family at the end of it.Raquel and Roberto Amaral are one of the warmest people I have ever met and they are not at all (I hope)embarrassed to let a severely under-dressed man in flip- flops tag along to the Sunday morning mass with...

We stayed as a group of 8 at Cancio's House in September. Raquel and Roberto Amaral were warm and indulgent hosts, going out of their way to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Aldona provides the perfect setting for a relaxed, laid-back getaway and Cancio's house nestled amidst a sleepy village and endless acres of farms is a perfect homestay....
