The Loja (shop/store in Portuguese) on the water’s edge was an early trading post. Canoas (boats) exchanged salt and tiles for farm produce bound for village fairs.
Restored, it’s now a self-contained space in the same rural waterfront setting, tranquil yet only 20 minutes from Panjim.
Experience Goa of long ago; early morning walks, cycle in the village; an 18th century chapel, temple and waterways.
Be creative or idle, watch fish jump, catch your supper, sleep to the lull of running water.
