Situated on the island of Itacuruçá, only a two hour drive south of Rio, the villa is a fantastic colonial island property on the water's edge. A row of palm trees stands between the front garden and the beach, which emphasizes the property’s colonial grandeur, and there is beautiful greenery all throughout the property. The small beach in front of the property is shared with two other houses, and is the perfect place to enjoy the calm waters in peace.

This beachfront island property is arranged over a single story, and has five en-suite bedrooms (two of which form a separate bungalow), a large split level indoor living and dining room, a separate kitchen, and connected by a covered walkway, a spacious outdoor lounge and BBQ area under a tiled roof, complete with a BBQ grill, a bar, wooden dining table, couches and beautiful ocean views. There is also a separate independent caretaker’s house, a boat house and up a hill at the back of the property there is a terrace, which has a small plunge pool.

The outdoor lounge area is where you will spend your time, relaxing and preparing drinks as you watch boats bob by. The property also comes with access to its own personal boat (for an extra charge) - nine people can be comfortably taken to neighboring beaches and islands. There is very little by way of local restaurants, shops and bars, so it is best to kick back at the house in the evening and fire up the BBQ. The housekeeper is a fantastic cook, too!

With great spaces to entertain and lounging/seating areas spread from inside to out, it would be almost impossible not to relax and enjoy a little bit of peace and quiet.

The villa is suitable for groups of friends and families with children of all ages wanting to have a very relaxing vacation.

Area description

Itacuruçá is a small town on the Green Coast, two hours south of Rio and two hours north of Angra dos Reis, part of the Mangaratiba municipality. This quaint fishing village is surrounded by mountains and is the epitome of tranquility. The 26-mile island of Ilha de Itacuruçá is just as serene, and is ideal for beach trips, nature walks, boat rides, and complete relaxation.

Part of the charm of Itacuruçá and the surrounding area is the minimal tourism, making for a peaceful and uninterrupted experience. During the week you might even be lucky enough to get the beach all to yourself. On the weekends the beaches do fill up more, with beach-goers playing popular games such as futevole and soccer, which provides great entertainment. On neighboring beaches you will also find various kiosks serving ice-cold beer, coconuts and tasty sweet and savory snacks.

Itacuruçá is the perfect authentic Brazilian escape. After experiencing the complete relaxation that Itacuruçá provides, you might never want to leave.
