Casa Abilio de Souza is a 150 year old house, owned by the Ferreira family. These 8 comfy AC rooms have a view of ancestral Goa. Accommodates up to 24 adults. We also have an in house housekeeper. In 2010, Erlick Ferreira, the grandson of Abilio de Sousa began restoring the property. After 5 long years, the house is now restored to its former glory with wooden flooring and high wooden ceilings, while carefully maintaining its aesthetics. Come live & stay in the entire house and enjoy yourself.

The space
Casa Abilio de Souza Quepem, Colonial Styled Home offers a curated Portuguese home concept from its design through to all of its services. The moment you enter our premises, you will see a lot of historical antiques that I have acquired from my ancestors, and restoring the same. Being passionate about antiques, I have also procured a lot of antiques suitable to the theme of my house.
Hand crafted with a lot of love and attention to detail, our Historical Home Stay is a private home set in the charming village of Quepem, just a few 15-20 kms away from all the best beaches of South Goa with Palolem and Colva being some of them.
A stunning contrast of luxury and the concept of the historical aspect connected to this house, has been carefully designed to attract an overall vibe of serenity and seclusion. One just needs to step in to relax. Every element has been carefully selected and aesthetically placed to ensure that you have a great experience.
The beautiful architecture has been designed in a unique fashion having various levels, unseen in modern architecture. A large open garden area, perfect for relaxing with loved ones or hiding out from them. In the evening this space is ideal for kicking back with a glass of wine.
The uniqueness of my home is deceiving to the eyes because you do not know where you enter and where you exit. We don’t deprive you of liquor which can be procured on request.We promise you won’t be disappointed. We are situated right next to a church and if you are lucky, you will get to see a couple of celebrations and marriages taking place. A lot of my explanation can not be put into words and I will let my pictures do the rest for you. Our home stay is covered by CCTV cameras within the common areas and around the house for your safety. We also have a security guard on the premises.

I am from an engineering background who loves antiques and has an ambition to restore old houses keeping in mind the ancient heritage. My dream is to show people who come to our lovely state of Goa its background and culture of how it was 150 years ago. I have been restoring my own houses to reconnect them with the aesthetic essence of our beautiful memories. I love to help people, make friends and do not shy away from going the extra mile in keeping people who stay with me at my premises comfortable. Born & bought up in Goa, so music and traveling is a hobby that I indulge on a regular basis. I am also an animal lover. I look forward to welcoming you to my lovely home & having some lovely conversations over a couple of drinks. A guarantee to all who live at my home will have some happy lasting memories and a bond to last a lifetime.
