Revora is a scenic village situated around 12 km from Mapusa, a hamlet in North Goa. Nestled midst dense foliage is the Alvares home-stay. On arrival, it feels as though you have stepped into a brand new world. Visitors are welcome to green trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels and the soothing gurgle of a stream that flows by. This stream originates high up in the hills, gathers volume as it descends and finally runs into the Chapora river, on whose banks Revora is situated.
