Featured on the cover of Casa Vogue Brazil, the villa is a luxurious five-bedroom plantation style house designed by one of Brazil’s most prominent interior designers. Located on the lake in the private Terravista Estate, it is a 10-minute walk to the beach via a private path, and a 15-minute drive to Trancoso.

Furnished to the highest standard of any beach house in the area, the villa sleeps up to 10 guests in the five large air-conditioned bedrooms (two doubles, three twins) with private bathrooms, air conditioning and ceiling fans.

The upstairs of the house has a vast open-plan living room taking up the entire floor. The room has incredibly stylish interior decor and is filled with unique art and furniture, including many comfortable couches and chairs for guests to lounge in. The room has large glass doors leading onto a covered outdoor terrace that is perfect for dining and admiring the beautiful view of the lake.

Downstairs is a magnificent kitchen, a home cinema, and additional spacious indoor/outdoor seating areas. The lovely dining room has wide French doors that open onto a spacious deck, where you will find the swimming pool, sun chairs, additional dining/sitting areas, and the picturesque view of the lake.

The Terravista Estate condominium is just a 10-minute walk to the beach and has private security, tennis courts, and an excellent 18-hole golf course. This makes the house great for tennis and golf lovers, and those who value privacy. The villa is equally 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.
