The villa is a stunning five-bedroom beach house decorated with local antiques and natural fibers, emphasizing the outdoors with the fantastic ocean views, a pool and the nearby beach. A short walk down the hill from the house is the beach, which extends for miles in either direction, and the bars and restaurants of the Quadrado are also just a five-minute drive away.

The beautifully decorated main house has a large open-plan sitting and dining area, a fully-equipped kitchen, a TV room, four ensuite bedrooms, and a spacious outdoor veranda running across the entire length of the house, with multiple seating areas and great ocean views. The house also has a ping pong table and a record player.

There is an additional structure on the property, the “Tree House Suite”, with the fifth ensuite bedroom, a sitting room and a veranda, which was designed by the same team as the stylish UXUA Hotel.

From the main house there are steps down to the garden where you will find a large infinity swimming pool, a wet-bar and BBQ area with a wood-burning pizza oven. There is also a charming outdoor lounge covered by a bougainvillea-clad pergola, and a separate pavilion slung with hammocks that is perfect for an afternoon siesta.

The villa is 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.

To make your arrival at the property as relaxing as possible, we suggest we stock the kitchen and fridges with a customised grocery shop prior to your vacation. 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. There is no charge for this service other than the cost of the food and drink.

Car hire is recommended, but not essential. Cars be can be rented locally in Trancoso and we are happy to help with these arrangements.
