The villa is a beautifully appointed foru-bedroom property in Trancoso located 10 minutes from the beach and just a few minutes from the main square in the center of town, the Quadrado. The Bohemian-style house is built over two floors and incorporates glass, wood and whitewashed walls in its décor to create a light and breezy environment, perfectly in keeping with its surroundings

There are two separates structures on the property - a main house and a guest cottage. On the ground floor of the two-story main house, you will find the open-plan kitchen, dining room and living area. Large glass doors open directly onto a wooden deck and pool area, integrating the indoor living space with the outdoors. Up the stairs on the first floor there is one master suite and one double bedroom, both with ensuite bathrooms, air conditioning, ceiling fans and mosquito nets around the comfortable king and queen-size beds. There is also a large balcony with a seating area overlooking the pool.

Across the pool from the main house is the one-story guest cottage. Inside there are two bedrooms with a mosquito nets, an ensuite bathroom, air conditioning and a ceiling fan. It gives off a very rustic feel with its cement bathtub and wooden accents, including the oversized wooden doors that are very common in the region. The cottage doors open up directly onto the deck and pool area, which faces the main house and is perfect for swimming, relaxing and sipping caipirinhas.

Area description

As well as offering some of the best beaches in 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 musicians (Beyoncé included!) 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.
