Artisanale Homes are ready to rent holiday homes. We currently have 4 Artisanale homes in Goa, named after the quaint villages they are located in and all listed here on this site. We have Artisanale Saligao, Colvale, Benaulim and Aldona. Each home is unique and has its own old-world charm.

The space
Artisanale Aldona, took us about 3 years to restore. We worked on the compound wall and the outdoor garden for a while, which was eroding into the fields opposite. We arrested the run off, by creating a multi-level garden around the house. We are keen that long term guests, take up to gardening and their own vegetables around. We do have a cashew tree, a Rita tree, bimbli, mango and coconut tree and a couple of pineapple saplings, on the property .

We have a large balcony which is shaded, private and looks into the multi level backyard of the house. It is apt for lounging with your pet, or as a great outdoor workspace. You constantly hear birds and most definitely will not see or be disturbed by other people walking around, as this area is not frequented by anyone or visible from the road. If you do have a larger group of friends over or a quiet meeting you can use the covered gazebo on level 1. A little kitchenette is attached to the gazebo. The kitchenette can be stocked with your personal knick-knacks, microwave, water kettle, and few cups and plates for quick service. Adjacent to the kitchenette is toilet with a western commode. We also have an outdoor shower for little kids to enjoy or wash and dry your four legged.

Inside the house, we start with the living room, which is oblong cross ventilated, and ideal for the entire family to get together. The 2 doors on either side lead directly into the bedrooms. Each of the bedrooms are ACed and have large attached bathrooms. Our ceiling to floor closets are in the bathroom. We have a wet and dry area in the bathroom. Our plumbing is all in order, with no leakages or dripping pipes. Our bathrooms have their respective overhead 5 litres water heaters.

The kitchen becomes quite the central point of the house. The dining table, being large tends to double up as a work space for most. We have a 230 litre refrigerator, microwave, water kettle, toaster, front load washing machine, water filter 4 burner gas area and 2 cylinders, all in mint condition loaded in the kitchen. We have the required 24 set spice jars and fridge storage containers all stored away under our platform counter. We have tableware for 6 and all required non stick pots and pans with the relevant ladles for cooking. We are very careful that we do not allow for burning or misuse/ scratch our kitchenware. We have various cleaning liquids, sponges, disposal bags and such, carefully put away for usage as and when required.

We have a perennial spring well attached to the house, which pumps water to the storage container above and used to water the garden.

The house has a 1KVA power inverter which gives you a 4 hour backup at the best case. It is well maintained. If you do drain the battery by plugging in a high motor device when the power is out, you will be held liable for the damages. The internet line is a dedicated optic fibre cable, the best in the area, from a franchise who is very prompt and lives in the area. Currently we have a wifi 150 MBPS line which can be scaled up, as and when required.

The entire house is rented as a single unit. Please go ahead and book our home and we would be happy to see you around these parts. If you would like to have a look at our other 4 restored homes, visit our Airbnb profile.

Where you’ll be

Aldona, Goa, India

Artisanale Aldona is a very quiet place with just fields and sparsely wooded area around. It is excellent for serene walks, collecting your thoughts, connecting with friends, writing a book et la.

The Aldona market square is about 15 minute walk, about 2 kms ride from the house. The stores at the square are very limited but you get great fresh bread, fish, veggies and fruits. The closest towns around are Mapusa, about 25 minute drive or Porvorim, which is again the same distance.

Our home borders 2 neighbours who are well into their 70's. Kindly consider their sensibilities before you play up your music and have your gatherings.

Hi, we are Jude and Yshana, from Goa. We are extremely sensitive to the lack of order the current pandemic has thrown us all into. Our homes are ready to move in, in every aspect and minutely adheres to the standard operating procedures in force. Drop us a line if you have any queries related to moving into Goa for the long or short term. Our homes that we offer to guests, have been painstakingly restored over many years by us. The art, books, decor that adorn the walls and floors are from our very own collections from around the world. Artisanale Homes have been born out of the need to save many a home from being razed down by the new world builders thereby saving a part of our built heritage. Our homes are delicately tucked away into the villages of Goa, giving you the typical Goan ambience, in the villages of Aldona, Benaulim, Saligao, Loutolim and Colvale. We prefer long staying guests about a 1 month upwards, and our pricing reflects this, but stays below a week are welcome too. We mainly operate by word of mouth and our guests do speak for us. We try to offer our guests the local ambience and encourage them to see the non touristy face of our land by being as un obtrusive as possible. We are available for assistance to our guests at all times and are accessible via phone and mail. Being avid travellers ourselves throughout India and across the world, we have some wonderful recommendations which we would be happy to share with you. So, be it a getaway from Goa, or clubbing your Goa holiday with a trip to the rugged mountains of Kashmir, ruins of Hampi or riding a safari jeep in Central India, we would be happy to share our stops and routes with you. Be sure of a safe, quiet, memorable stay with us... You can see the collective of our restored homes here
