We're located on
, a beautiful bay just south of Palolem that sits along the most southern stretch of the Goan coastline. On the hill at the northern end of Patnem beach we offer panoramic views of Patnem and the neighbouring bays
The peace, beauty and idyllic setting of Turtle Hill provides a wonderful place to both relax and enjoy. Whilst nearby Palolem has all the liveliness of an established holiday resort.
Just 2 min. walk to the Indian Ocean (Arabian Sea).The beach is only steps away, but your Bungalow isin very private location.
Goa’s airport, Dabolim, is south of the state capital Panaji, approximately 70 kilometres (ninety minutes drive) from Patnem. Most of India’s domestic airlines operate here and several direct charter companies fly into Goa from the UK and Europe.
Patnem’s nearest town is Chaudi, which has both a bus and train station (Canacona) as well as cash point machines (ATM). There are regular buses or you can get an autorickshaw for around 50 Indian rupees each way.
There are also good local medical facilities with doctors and a private hospital just two kilometres away.
Handy Hints on What to Bring:
Medical: You can get most things you might need at local pharmacists. However you may want to bring a basic first aid kit. It’s not a bad idea to take some good quality probiotics before traveling to India to ensure good belly health. Some travelers swear by Grapefruit Seed Extract, a good natural remedy for stomach problems which is available in Europe and the US, but more difficult to get in India.
Clothing: Most people live in swimwear and sarongs and loose cool clothing. You will need to bring a jumper or something warmer for the evening when it gets a little cooler. (usually December thru mid-February). We’ve only ever worn flip flops on our feet, although we’ve seen the odd person in trainers!
Beach towels: Most people tend to use a sarong on the beach, available in abundance locally!
Other: Torch. Most paths are unlit at night and we have been known to have the odd power cut! Again, don't worry if you forget anything as you can buy most things locally.
