Yet another old house-turned-new homestay in Goa has thrown its doors open to discerning travellers who eschew the usual tikka-garland resort encounters. Arco Iris in Curtorim, a quiet village in south Goa, follows close on the heels of others who have taken the Goa experience away from the beaches and into the country. Untouched by the clamour of tourists and swaddled by lush paddy fields and seasonal lakes, they offer a chance to live the Goan susegad life, minus the everyday trials. Painted a sunny yellow, this charming 100-year-old Portuguese-style house run by Bennita, Ganesh and their two children, overlooks the Corjim lake, making it a popular destination for birdwatchers.
