Even though this was my first trip to Goa, I decided to ditch the beaches and stay somewhere quieter. I decided on the Cancio's house in Aldona and I am so glad I did so. I went there with 4 other friends and we were accomodated in 2 rooms. The rooms are done up in such a pretty olden era... More

We stayed at Cancio's house during our last Goa visit. The length of our visit was about 4 days. We had a wonderful time at their place. The guest rooms were well maintained and clean and the house precints are lovely with lots of greenery. What really sets it apart is the warmth of the hosts Raquel and Roberto. Their... More

If you are looking for a place to just relax... absorb the quaint beauty of Goan hinterland... a visit to Cancio's House is highly recommended. The hosts - Amarals are not only welcoming, but their warmth and hospitality far exceeds the mere business of host and boarder. I visited with my mother late in June,to celebrate her birthday, and the... More

My wife and I impulsively decided on a holiday to Goa. Having been there several times before, we decided to avoid the beaches and head instead to a homestay, away from the usual tourist circuit. My wife is an avid follower of travel blogs and had read about a homestay in Aldona called Cancio’s House, the 500-year-old ancestral house of... More

Tucked away in the beautiful village of Aldona - Cancio's house is a travellers delight. The warm and generous hospitality by Roberto and Raquel, the sumptuous food, the gorgeously done up 500 years old house, the happy zen like vibes of the place - the list is endless - sacrilege to not go here whenever one is in Goa!

If you are keen on experiencing a part of Goa that is quaintly beautiful, historically rich and far far away from the din and crowd of overenthusiastic tourists, Roberto and Raquel Amarals’ Goan-Portuguese home stay (Cancio’s House) is the place to go. Conveniently close to the famous St. Thomas Church in Aldona, the home stay is a picturesque getaway for... More

Me and my partner visited Cancio's in the last week of July. This was our first time in Goa during the monsoons and our first homestay too! And I would recommend both whole heartedly.
