Best of Brazil

Baroque Access uncovers a treasure in Bahia, Brazil, the charming little village of Trancoso, a tranquil, traditional place that overlooks some of the most magnificent beaches in the country


Located on a tropical lush green bluff overlooking gold sand beaches, the charming little Brazilian fishing village of Trancoso has become a popular resort town where celebrities come to shop in funky boutiques, dine on traditional cuisine in laid-back restaurants or enjoy a night of festive fun before returning to their luxury boutique hotels.

Despite its recent popularity, the town has remained unspoiled and traditional, with horses grazing in the 16th Century main square that is lined with rows of brightly painted houses. Declared an historic World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Trancoso is a joy to explore – when you’ve had your fill of the miles of untouched golden beaches.

One of the best places to stay if you’re visiting Trancoso is Villas de Trancoso, a tiny luxury villa retreat located right on beautiful Nativos beach that offers accommodation for up to 37 people in just 11 magnificent villas and suites nestling in lush tropical gardens. Each is individually designed, and offers one, two or four exquisitely decorated, sumptuous bedrooms. With a staff of 35, the service is exceptionally personal and attentive, and the cuisine is of the highest standard. Awarded The Trip Advisor Traveler’s Choice Award for the Best Hotel in Brazil, the Villas de Trancoso will not disappoint.

The hotel, which has been in operation since 2001, is located in an idyllic setting. It’s a private, tranquil place with every modern facility to make a stay here a memorable one. It’s become a popular choice for a romantic getaway, and is also used as a honeymoon destination. With its own private beach, white marble swimming pool, a beach bar and shaded lounge area with inviting lounge chairs and pillows, the hotel offers an exceptional beach holiday, where relaxing is the order of the day, and every luxury is at your fingertips.

 Of course, the hotel offers every amenity, so there is no need to leave the premises unless you really want to. There’s a fully equipped, uniquely crafted wooden health and fitness center. Activities abound – enjoy horseback riding on the beach, kayaking nearby or explore miles of untouched beaches in tropical surroundings on a secluded walk. A holiday here is all about water sports, and aside from swimming, guests enjoy bodysurfing or play Frisbee and paddleball on the beach.

Laze the day away on your own private hammock in the shade of a palm tree, while the sea breeze gently blows and the sea is close enough to reach out and touch. Then head for the town for a party atmosphere. This is pure paradise; beautiful Brazil at its very best.

As the hotel is so small, it’s ideal for weddings or other special occasions, and guests often book out the entire place for this very reason. If you’d like to book a holiday at this stunning retreat, why not contact Baroque Travel right away - info@baroquetravel.com
