Refurbished in 2010, the villa is a very stylish colonial house in the heart of Paraty's Centro Histórico, which has been decorated and restored to the standard of a Five Star hotel. The location gives unsurpassed access to life in the old town - the little cafes and bars, good seafood restaurants, shady squares, and cobblestone streets that lead to the old port where boats wait to take visitors around the Bay of Paraty.

The house sleeps up to six guests and has a total of three ensuite bedrooms with their own bathrooms (all bathroom equipment is of the highest standard available). Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor (one twin, one double) and a master suite is on the first floor mezzanine overlooking the open-plan living room below. The whole ground floor has been designed in a modern loft style with the open-plan living/dining room and kitchen all integrated with a courtyard deck, which makes the otherwise large space feel intimate. The light and spacious living/dining area has dazzling white polished-cement floors, over-sized white sofas, and hardwood tables and chairs, and is integrated with the fully-equipped kitchen, which has all brand new appliances. In the living area is a glass wall that can be folded back to give access to the courtyard deck, which has a Jacuzzi and orchid garden.

The villa is ideal for anyone looking to experience the authentic flavor of Brazil, without compromising any of the modern comforts and conveniences. It is suitable for groups of friends and families with children of all ages.

"The house exceeded all expectations. I could’ve easily spent a week there. We loved the house, the furnishings, the views, and the linens” - Deborah Dunn, Conde Nast Traveller

Area description

Paraty is a lovely 17th century town that has been perfectly preserved thanks to a long period of isolation, and was declared a National Historical Monument in 1966. There are winding narrow cobblestone roads with small fishermen’s cottages and vast merchants mansions standing side by side, all white stucco with brightly painted shutters and doors. Vehicles are banned from the town, and the charming art galleries, shops, restaurants and bars tucked amongst the cobbled streets are best explored on foot. Paraty is equidistant between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, both of which can be reached in 3.5-4 hours by car.

Daily maid service, and housekeeper.

Additional professional cooks, maids, babysitters, barmen, etc. may be provided for an extra cost and paid for locally when requested in advance.

Private transfers with trusted drivers can be arranged from the airports in both Rio and São Paulo. Alternatively, Paraty has its own airport, which is about ten minutes by car from the house, and helicopter and private plane charters are also available upon request.

To make your arrival at the property as relaxing as possible we suggest we stock the kitchen and fridges with a customized grocery shop prior to your arrival. This means that you will arrive to a kitchen full of food, a fridge full of cold drinks and that the first meal can be served shortly after your arrival.

Boat charter is the best way to explore the pristine beaches and island restaurants in the Bay of Paraty. We work with a variety of speed-boats, crewed yachts and converted local fishing boats which can be arranged for you in advance or during your stay.

Best Bits

  • In addition to renting the house in its entirety for private use, the three bedrooms can also be rented individually
  • The large glass wall in the living area fills the room with sunlight and can be folded back to give access to a courtyard deck with a jacuzzi and orchid garden

Bear in Mind

  • Guests should be aware that the house is located in the Centro Histórico, where most of the action is in Paraty, so it is best suited for those who want to experience life in a beautiful Brazilian town rather than for those looking for complete quiet
