Villa 138
  • All destinations
  • Bahia
  • Trancoso



Recently described by ELLE magazine as having an ambiance of Technicolor Tropicana, VILLA 138 is a visual spectacle to behold. Painted a violet-blue, with a hanging straw sculpture next to the front door, the outer walls sumptuously clash with the orange outdoor furniture. Upon entering the house, you are struck by an eclectically outfitted interior and energetic colour scheme. However, aside from the visually stimulating and avant-guard environment that the Casa emits, it is perfect for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the peaceful, tropical, Bahian lifestyle. Combining local artistic traditions with contemporary design the villa offers a guest experience that is both luxurious while remaining total in keeping with its environs.

The house has three independent suites (As well as an additional single room available). The bright, airy bedrooms feature interesting pieces of antique furniture. There are also two beautifully furnished bathrooms. The living room, kitchen, terrace and dining room are also decorated throughout in custom décor and antiques with great views of the now-famous Quadrado.

Guests can pass the time unwinding and relaxing on the veranda. Make for day bed on your return rom the beach to siesta as the evening chases the sun away and enjoy the garden, rich with tropical birds and smells. Dine al-fresco in an intimate, outside dining area (although the best of Trancoso’s restaurants are on your doorstep) or take a bath in the vintage outdoor bathtub or shower. There is a hand-made charm here by the bucket-load.

The property has private breakfast service, daily house keeping, and access to Concierge and Spa/Fitness Center (on request). Operated with hotel services on specific periods with access to beach beds, the hotel pool and spa.

Area description

As well as offering some of the best beaches in the Northeastern Brazil, the Southern Bahian village of Trancoso has a very pretty colonial heart, set on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The large, grassy main square known as the Quadrado is surrounded by colorful native houses presided over by a small church, and has dazzling views of the beaches and ocean. In the evening everyone heads to the Quadrado to sip caipirinhas and browse the shops and boutiques (including nearly all of the chicest Brazilian designers). 

The atmosphere is incredibly relaxed - flip-flops, open shirts and kaftans are the order of the day. However, many of the best know Brazilian film-makers, models, journalists, and singers are regulars at the bars and restaurants. It has begun to attract a sophisticated and international clientele, who come to experience the authentic flavor of Brazil, enhanced by unpretentious restaurants, quaint hotels and stunning private houses.
