If you’re looking to ditch the daily grind and head to a space of peace and quiet, then how about a visit to NV Eco Farm, in Dabal, South Goa, where guests will find not only a relaxing ambience, but also get a glimpse into life in Goa.

NV Eco farm is hidden in the forests of Dhabal, in Dharbandora, South Goa. A drive to the place will bring back fond memories of Goa’s old world charm, thanks to its traditional, rural setup and the verdant forest greens.

Cottages and Farmstay

NV Eco Farm offers three high end wooden cottages that are enveloped in greenery and furnished with modern amenities, where visitors can relax and unwind, far from the madding crowd.

Don't miss this!

There is a very interesting spot near the river in the farm. The location is beautifully landscaped and bordered by tall arecanut palms, which provide shade, while allowing just enough light to peek through.

Here, guests can relax by the pool and enjoy being drenched by the soothing sounds of the flowing river and the chirping birds.

Garden and Plantation

The farm has two gardens which are well worth visiting. The first is the butterfly garden which has plants which attract butterflies and also plants that are carnivorous. So, it comes as little surprise that you will find a variety of butterflies, in all kinds of colours, here.

The second one is the astral garden, which is also quite fascinating. The garden has been well thought out, and visitors can look out for plants that are beneficial for them, based on their zodiac sign.

As you walk through the 60-acre property, you come across plantations of cashew, mango, coconut, arecanut, banana, pineapple, and more.

The Spice Farm Trail is another feature that you shouldn't miss, and is guided by a local, who has been taking care of the plantation for years, and is immensely knowledgeable about the various spices, and also shares clever, indigenous techniques that help the plants to grow well.

The spices that are grown in this farm are pepper, vanilla, nutmeg, clove, cardamom and turmeric to name a few.
