Jardim De Amor : Luxury villas with colonial architecture
Authored by Lindsay Bernard Rodrigues, Co-owner and Director, Bennet & Bernard Group
Jardim De Amor, which translates to Garden of Love, is a cluster of colonial luxury villas with colonial architecture by Bennet & Bernard Custom homes. It is intricate, yet minimalistic, exclusive, yet functional. They are set in sylvan surroundings only minutes away from the gorgeous beaches of Anjuna and Vagator in Goa. Bespoke in style and aesthetic, each of these stunning Villas will bear the unmistakable mark of Portuguese architecture, making room for memorable experiences that meets contemporary luxury.
It is a very exclusive project which is very evident as there are only six colonial villas at Jardim De Amor. Luxury is a limited edition and never mass-produced. Each one of the villas has the interplay of indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly flowing into each other, giving you the experience of oneness. Carefully crafted with the touches of vintage Portuguese design, each of the six villas hosts a private garden and a private plunge pool laid out in a way to bind you in a tapestry of priceless moments. Thereby making sure that even while you’re nestled indoors, it seems like an outing.
When the Portuguese conquered Goa, the architectural expression was paramount. There are hints and glimpses of the same aesthetic which are mimicked through myriad elements in each Jardim De Amor villa. The Jardin De Amor exteriors have been made aesthetic and reminiscent of the bygone era. They believe that old is gold, and its story must be told. Some of the elements that make a statement are the handcrafted wrought iron, stone cladding, bougainvillea for landscaping along with Portuguese themed flora for the authentic feel and Portuguese style verandah with arches and classic lantern style lighting.
The interiors are of a modern eclectic style with hints of colonial Portuguese. They have incorporated intricate detail to achieve this look, for instance, they have classic kitchens with acacia wood soft-touch cabinets and Azulejos style splash walls, Portuguese themed flooring with hand-painted inserts, high ceilings with wooden rafters and classic and beautiful chandeliers that give it an imperial touch.
