Before you reach the main villa and casinhas of Aashyana Lakhanpal, the striking rooftop of the Villa Venus comes into view. Surrounded by high walls, palms and lush greenery, this single storey building of Portuguese origin, circa 1830, has been beautifully restored and renovated to retain an authentic feel. A shaded path leads to a classical porch and wide verandah overlooking an inviting, mosaic tiled 20-meter private pool to the right of the villa.

Sophisticated planning provides a vista from the front to the rear of the Villa, giving a rare sense of space and serenity, which is the hallmark of Aashyana Lakhanpal. A 10m x 10m open plan design encompasses living and dining areas plus a fully equipped kitchen; high ceilinged lighting fixtures and an airy with three double doors leading onto the veranda and garden areas. Elegance is the word that comes to your mind when you walk into all of the three large double bedrooms, each en-suite a bathroom and an individual access to the garden and pool.

Terracotta-tiled floors, soft white walls and dark wood frames of the windows and doors grace all the rooms and enhance the contemporary quality of the furniture, the art work - the collecting of which is a lifelong passion of the owner, Ajai Lakhanpal.

Both internally and externally the Villa Venus has been thoughtfully provided with easy access to all facilities for wheelchairs if needed.

Whether relaxing in the air-conditioned luxury of the interior or sunbathing in the sumptuous gardens around the pool, we encourage you to let your senses be seduced by Villa Venus.
