This villa is one of the most amazing houses in Trancoso. This six-bedroom beachfront property is set right on the water at Praia dos Nativos, and 2 km from the center of town, the Quadrado. Despite its central location, the villa is in a gated community and remains very private.

The property has a total of six suites (four main suites and two additional suites for baby-sitters, staff personal or also for extra guests, personal staff or babysitters) and is separated into four bungalows. Two of the bungalows are in front of the pool and face the beach- one has a spacious sitting room and home theater, and the other one houses the master suite with a double bed, large open bathroom, indoor/outdoor showers, and a beautiful view of the ocean.

Behind this you will find two further bungalows. One has a kitchen, breakfast area, and dining room, and the other has three suites with twin beds that can be made into doubles. All three suites have open bathrooms and indoor/outdoor showers. Near the entrance of the property are two additional suites with twin beds that can be used for extra guests, babysitters or staff.

A large swimming pool lies on the beach side of the house next to a spacious deck and outdoor sitting area, and in front of the pool there is a garden and the gate to the beach. The ocean is great for swimming, and during the day a covered tent is set up on the beach where drinks and snacks are served as desired.

The villa is suitable for groups of friends and families with children of all ages.

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.
