Olaulim village, where our homestay is located, is just 11 kms from Panjim, the capital of Goa and 8kms from Mapusa, famous for its Friday Market. Dabolim Airport is 42 kms away while Thivim and Karmali Railway stations are equal distance of 20 km. We can arrange a pick-up to our place according to your travel plans.

While at our homestay, you can experience the other side of Goa, being away from the bustle and hustle of the coastal touristic belt, but at the same time, we are not too far from the beaches, just a half an hour drive and you reach the famous Baga and Calangute beaches. Olaulim , which is a part of Pomburpa village, is surrounded by fields, rivers, and tiny hillocks.

Though Olaulim Backyards looks remote in its location, yet it is just half hour drive from Panjim. The drive is painteresque with winding roads past little hamlets, Mandovi river , with a first right past Casa Britona, past Salvador de Mundo church, Exoshim and Pomburpa famous for its natural fresh water springs and the famous Salim Ali bird sanctuary in the village of Chorao opposite the river. The villages ahead are Aldona which has the famous church of St Thomas as well as the first Goan suspension bridge.

The beaches of Baga , Calangute, Candolim, Anjuna, Vagator are about half hours drive . Mapusa the main market town of Goa is about seven km and Bicholim town with its earthen pottery is about nine km from Olaulim Backyards.

Panjim is a quaint city with well planned gardens and roads. This old areas or the Latin Quarter called FONTINHAS is definitely worth a walk with restaurants like Venit /Viva Panjim/ Ernestos a heaven for Goan and other Mediterranean and Portuguese dishes

The FLE MARKET in Anjuna is held weekly on Wednesday and the first market starts sometime in November up to April. There are also the Arpora Night Markets which are in interesting blend of Music, Dance, Shopping Food and Cocktails. Musicians from different parts of the world perform free for the usual colorful gathering of people from all over the world. You need to bargain with most of the sellers though.
