This villa is a beautiful modern house completed in 2010, located just a few minutes walk from the gorgeous Nativos Beach, adjacent to the protected Mata Atlantica Reserve. The house has been designed to sit lightly in its environment and surroundings, and the bedrooms, dining room, kitchen and living areas have been left as open as possible to make the most of the sea breeze.

The property is on the side of a small hill that offers a partial view of the sea, and the closest beaches are two of the nicest and quietest in Trancoso, ideal for swimming and long walks or runs along the beach. The popular beach bar at Estrela D’Agua is also only a 15-minute stroll along the beach.

There are two structures on the property, spread over two levels, which are separated by a wooden deck with a small garden in the middle. Within the two structures there are three bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen, beautiful dining area, spacious living room, and high quality appliances and furnishings throughout the entire house. The three air-conditioned bedrooms (two rooms have double beds, one room has twin beds) also have comfortable mattresses, pillows and linens. Two of the bedrooms have private verandas - one with a sofa, hammock, and ocean views.

On the top level is where you will find the kitchen, dining room, outdoor sitting area, and two bedrooms. There are steps leading down to another wooden deck below which has the main living room, master bedroom, and the beautiful swimming pool and wooden deck surrounded by a garden with palm trees and partial ocean views, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the weather.

The villa is suitable for groups of friends and families (although young children are not allowed). It is also suitable for guests who value privacy, as it is part of a private condominium.

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 customized grocery shop prior to your trip. 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.

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