The villa is a completely renovated, rustic-chic South Bahian house located in the vibrant city of Trancoso. The enchanting three-bedroom house sleeps six guests, and is set on a quiet and beautiful cobblestone street lined with flowers and palm trees. The street is located just behind the Centro Histórico (the social and cultural heart of the city) and only a few minutes walk to the nearest beaches.

The owner of the house dedicated her life to contemporary art and interior design, and has filled the house with a charming mix of eclectic furniture built by authentic Brazilian craftsmen, and other unique pieces collected throughout her extensive travels: Argentine aguayos, Moroccan lanterns and fabrics from Provence.

The house is split between two “blocks”, which are separated by an outdoor wooden deck with a small pergola and breakfast area, as well as a garden with palm trees, jasmine flowers and hammocks to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

In the first block there is an open-plan kitchen, dining room and living room opening onto a wooden deck. Sliding wooden doors in the first block connect the indoors with the outdoors and create an open-air space. The second block has two floors and three bedrooms. Downstairs are two double bedrooms sharing one bathroom, and upstairs is one double bedroom with a private bathroom and a balcony. All of the bedrooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans.

The house comes with all the modern conveniences including WiFi, TV and an iPod sound system, and is suitable for groups of friends and families with children of all ages. The stylish interiors, beautiful garden and ideal location next to the center of town make the villa the perfect Trancoso getaway.

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.
