Tucked away into a quiet 'vaddo' in Cuncolim, Salcette, 'Gormand' is a 1915 Indo-Portuguese home, where you will experience the authentic village life of South Goa. While only a short drive from beautiful and busy southern beaches of Benaulim, Colva and Cavelossim, the pace of life in and around Cuncolim is unhurried. Not yet registering on any tourist map, this cluster of traditional villages retains an idyllic old-world charm and a true 'goenkar' personality.

Sehemu
Cuncolim and its neighbouring villages of Velim and Assolna reflect the harmonious character of Goa’s complex demography. Bounded on one side by hilly tracts and on the other by the Sal River’s verdant banks, Cuncolim is especially resplendent during the monsoon, but remains scenic year-round. Dotted with a rich smattering of Portuguese era architecture, this stretch of inland country is certainly worth exploring along quaint country roads. With active municipal representation and a strong sense of community, development here has been steady and sustainable – the local way of life, uncompromised.

So, what to look out for? Pau walas cycling past at furious pace - horns bleating, municipal garbage collectors playing hide-and-seek even as their whistles give them away, chatty knife-sharpeners and fish-mongers bringing traditional mobile service and home-delivery. Susegad between 1-4 pm is always a trending phenomenon - Can’t blame the locals for their love of the afternoon siesta - a delicious fish thali, comes with this heavy price.

our home
Typical of any family in a village, 'Gormand' is like a tightly-knit fabric, rich in texture and vividly printed. Podimas is mascot and 4th generation of the family. He’s tasked with keeping watch over our home, which he does in good faith with his brother Teddy and their gang of furry friends – Penny, Feni, Rowdy and Cleo – to back him up. Local (canine) goonda, Gabbar, and his sidekicks show up once in a way to stir things up in our quiet vaddo, and Podimas responds in kind for our dose of drama.

getting here
Dabolim Airport, in Vasco, is about 45 km away from Cuncolim and the closest railway station is Madgaon (about 9 km way). Pre-paid taxis cost INR 1200 one-way from the airport and about INR 800 from the railway station. Alternatively, you could take the public bus to Madgaon (comes from Vasco) You will have to change buses at Madgaon bus-stand, where a bus to Cuncolim Bus Stand and the Market departs every 20 minutes, beginning 07:00 am. Tansfers can be organised at additional cost.

Opening out into the garden, with a separate kitchen unit out under the jackfruit tree, our little guest-room comes complete with an attached bathroom and pocket-sized pantry.
