Little Paradise Cottage lies on the little road thats winds down the valley of ASSAGAO from the small market town of Mapusa - 3 km, and ends at the quaint fishing village of Chapora - 5km. The cottage is close to Vagator and Anjuna Beaches - 4 kms. Baga are Calangute is 6 kms to the south and the beaches of Morjim, Ashvem and Mandrem are 10 kms to the north.

Assagao is one of the tiniest and most beautiful villages of North Goa that rests peacefully in verdant hills, clothed in cashew groves. Gifted with the healing power of its spring water, natural beauty and gentle breezes from the Arabian Sea, the village has a laid back and peaceful air about it. A birder’s paradise… you can spot a variety of birds including the Purple Sunbird, Wagtail, Tickell’s Blue flycatcher, Red-whiskered Bulbul and the Asian Yellow Oriole right on your open verandah.

Assagao has quietly become a fashionable residential area of Goa, with many stately Portuguese restored homes with stunning tropical gardens and flowers. Quaint cafes, restaurants, boutiques, yoga and ayurveda retreats, water therapy and rejuvenation centres dot Assagao…and are all just steps away from the Little Paradise cottage.

Mapusa Market is five minutes away and has a large variety of fruit, vegetable, fish, spices and goan sausages and feni. There is also the popular Union Ayurvedic Pharmacy with an antidote for almost all health concerns at Mapusa, along with well stocked supermarkets, traditional restaurants & bakeries and wine stores.
