The villa is a stunning contemporary beach house set right on the sand in one of the most sought after and private areas of Trancoso. The 2,000m2 house was completed in 2009 and was built to the highest standard imaginable. The property has eight bedrooms, and although it is very private, it is only a 10-minute car ride away from the bars, boutiques and restaurants of the Quadrado.

There are two identical houses on the property, which each have four double bedrooms and offer accommodation for up to 16 guests. At the center of both houses are two main villas that have kitchens, spacious living rooms, indoor/outdoor dining areas, and one large master suite (with ocean views and a jacuzzi).

The other three double bedrooms in each house are distributed in adjoining buildings and bungalows surrounded by tropical vegetation that perfumes the air and nurtures the soul, each with ocean views and their own particular charm. The property also has a massage area.

Outside there are BBQ grills, wood-burning ovens and fireplaces, which are all made from old recycled tree trunks, adding to the sense of calm retreat. One of the best parts of the property is the semi-private beach where umbrellas and sun beds are set up during the day, and there is full bar service offering chilled coconuts, ice cold beer and caipirinhas to refresh weary beach-bums. (One of the houses offers a pool)

The villa is suitable for groups of friends and families with children of all ages, looking for comfort and privacy.



There are two identical, 4-bedroom houses on the property, which offers accommodation for up to 16 guests. Each house sleeps 8 guests and may be booked individually

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.
