"The harmony of nature, the easy elegant comfort of the house, the discreet and caring staff all make Aashyana a place where time stands still for a while and brings serenity to the soul. A joyous place."
Before reaching the main villa and casinhas of Aashyana Lakhanpal, the striking rooftops of the Villa Venus will come 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 - a hallmark at Aashyana Lakhanpal. A 10m x 10m open plan design encompasses living and dining areas plus a fully equipped kitchen; high ceilinged light and an airy with three double doors leading onto the veranda and garden areas. Elegance is the hall mark of all three large double bedrooms, each en-suite bathroom and with 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, let your senses be seduced by the Villa Venus.
