We had the most peaceful 3 day stay at Cristovao's place. The property is lush green, soothing and perfectly quiet. The villa was cozy and comfortable, it felt like home. We enjoyed long walk around the place in late evenings and the beautiful also peaceful beaches that were a short drive away. The island kitchen in poolside is very cute, definitely far superior cooking experience than regular kitchens! Its a perfect get away for a few days as you really get all the peace and quiet you miss in cities. It was Nice to wake to up to sounds of birds chirping, sometimes peacock.. the location is tricky so you should mark it in advance, the phone signals are erratic.. but that actually is a boon. Cris is very sweet, he helped us all along in arranging transportation and suggesting places to visit. Would recommend to all city dwellers looking for a few days of rejuvenation.

The verdant landscape, a sparkling pool, and an extremely courteous host- the combination of three made our monsoon trip to South Goa an unforgettable one. Minus the shrills of urbanity, the place provides for all possible amenities you need for a lovely vacation. You have to see to believe how meticulously Mr. Cristovao has carved out this place. There are few things which you can take care of, from your end. Ensure you have some vehicle to commute, although I am sure Mr. Cristovao can help you with that. You have to take care of your meals. But despite being secluded, its close to several popular restaurants of the South- Pentagon, Zeebops, Martins, Nostalgia, Aura etc. And the amazing open kitchen will definitely tempt you to get your groceries and cook a lunch. This tranquil stay will give you the pleasure of exploring the countryside of Goa like never before. Only minor suggestion is that a swing or a hammock in this almost perfect place will make me wanna come back even sooner :) P.S.- Please don't follow (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps in trying to reach here. Simply follow the route instructions of Mr. Cristovao and you shall save a lot of time

If you are stressed out and tired of the city and want a weekend just for yourself with a loved one, you have come to the right place. This place is a resurrection of all things beautiful in life and the pictures just do not do enough justice. The icing on the cake is Chris, who is a very gracious and accommodating host.

Cristovao User ProfileCristovao is a superhost.

My name is Cristovao Francisco Das Merces Vas Falcao in Portuguese, in short Christopher or Chris in English. I am an Educationist having started various primary schools in South Goa. Presently I am Chairman/managing trustee of St Anne's educational Trust which manages and runs The St Anne's group of Educational Institutions having its registered office at Fatorda - Margao - Goa.
Beside education my passion and hobbies include collecting and restoring vintage and classic cars which can be viewed and admired at my farm, Quinta Da Santana, situated in the beautiful village of Raia in South - Goa. Quinta Da Santana has a Manor farm house surrounded by nature and cradled in the midst of hills and valleys in a wooded serene environment - a nature lovers paradise - and it is here that I spend all of my free time. My hobbies also include travelling, meeting people from different countries, reading and sipping Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Its been a few months now that The Manor House at Quinta Da Santana has been opened for guests to come and stay and enjoy the beauty of the place. To play host to these guests remains my favourite pass time
