Artisanale Homes welcome guests who will preserve the serenity of the village environment, those who will live by the sensitivities of simple village folks and in doing so, believe that they always belonged there.
We prefer guests who like to stay for periods longer than 7 days. However, shorter stays are considered on availability. The homes are self sufficient and equipped with all the basic amenities required for a long stay. Artisanale Homes are self catering premises, and food arrangements are made on request. The homes are located in enchanting locales off the beaten tourist track and are each within 3-4 kms of the main market. However, we would arrange your transport, site seeing trips, et al … on request.

    Colvale
Artisanale Colvale is one of those truly charming country dream homes...situated in the dreamy village of one of North Goa’s most unadulterated villages. Sitting in the pillared verandah it is easy to get lost in your favourite paperback, while you hear the Hornbills, Koels and other chirping birds across the agrarian landscape in front of you.. The master bedroom, the mirror room as we fondly call it, and the guest bedroom open into the al fresco dining area and the kitchen courtyard. Both rooms are spacious and have attached baths.

Apt for those looking for a holiday with nature and in the Goan villages, yet never being too far from the white sands of the beaches and the city.
