  Details
Overview
A homestay experience in one of the villages in Goa is quite something memorable. Acro Iris in South Goa is one boutique hideaway set in one of the hills in Curtorim.

The house itself is styled along colonial Portuguese lines with a high plinth, imposing columns, high ceilings and offers excellent year-round natural ventilation. The house has been restored and renovated, true to its heritage and without compromising the modern day requirement for convenience and comfort. During the restoration process, all efforts have been made to preserve the original materials which have gone into the construction of the house by using them, at times, for alternate purposes. The end result is a house which reflects a judicious and tasteful blend of the modern and the traditional.

The balcao or the balcony, is the most social part of the house where any daily activity, be it catching up with neighbours, reading the morning newspapers, eating or just plain lazing can be carried out. The sala or the high ceilinged living room is reserved for formally receiving and entertaining visitors.
 
The dining room is dominated by the dining table which can comfortably seat 8. Incidentally, once you see the dining table, you will be pleasantly surprised to know that it was originally one of the doors in the house.
