4 BEDROOMS | 8 GUESTS | TRANCOSO, SOUTHERN BAHIA
The villa is a chic four-bedroom house offering a great mix of both privacy and space, as well as a perfect location just a few minutes walk to both the Quadrado in the center of town, and the nearest beach. It is a dream holiday house on the level of a modern luxury hotel, mixing contemporary luxury with a cool industrial vibe.
The 400m2 house was originally a ceramic workshop/atelier and has retained many of the industrial features, such as the original kiln. The stylish decor is a bohemian mix of local materials, furniture and one off articles designed by local craftsmen and artists, setting a quirky and modern tone.
There are four bright air-conditioned bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a spacious living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, and a fantastic indoor/outdoor living space based around the original kiln.
The property is located at the end of a quiet street and appears unassuming from the outside. Past the front door, flanked on both sides by large windows, the entrance leads down into the wide open plan kitchen, and then down more steps into a vaulted space, which is pierced by the original structural columns made of fabulous thick local wooden beams. The vaulted space is broken into various separate seating areas for dining, reading, watching TV, and playing board games.
The outside living space, a small courtyard, and three of the four bedrooms are accessed from the spacious open plan kitchen and living area. The large fourth bedroom is situated opposite the house along one side of the pool, and can be used as a comfortable bedroom, office or pool house.
The covered, multi-level indoor/outdoor living area features the very striking original kiln, which has continued to be used as a fireplace. It faces the lush tropical gardens and the bright blue infinity swimming pool, which quietly disappears into the surrounding jungle. You will want to pass your time in this outdoor lounge, as it is the perfect place for BBQs (churrascos) or watching the sunset while sipping cocktails with friends.
The villa is suitable for groups of friends and families with children, and offers all the modern conveniences and entertainment features one would need. It is also perfect for honeymooners.

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.
