When it comes to Brazil, we love the party vibe and the incredible surfing. But we also know that sometimes you just want to escape it all and totally chill out, which is where the small fishing village of Trancoso comes in.
treat yourself to trancoso
On the coast of the tropical state of Bahia sits Trancoso, a historic Bahian village surrounded by miles of alarmingly beautiful beach and untouched tropical forests with turquoise bays and white sand. Our favourite spot for enjoying the laidback Brazilian beach vibe, this is the latest hip and chic hang-out along Brazil’s vast coastline.
Here, we recommend staying in barefoot luxury at Villas de Trancoso, where you’ll have your own private one-bedroom villa separated from others by lawns and gardens. This is where A-list celebrities go to escape, and it has been known to host faces you may well recognise.
The décor is simple yet utterly comfortable. Think decked verandahs and hammocks, bamboo chairs with soft white cushions, sparkling swimming pools and beautifully kept gardens. They call it ‘elegant simplicity’ and we can see why. Villas de Trancoso will leave you utterly relaxed, while keeping an edge of charming natural style.
out and about on the stunning coastline
Looking for activity? Try horseback riding, bicycling, paddle tennis, body surfing, kayaking, or simply a good swim. Check in with the villa’s personal trainer and enjoy a workout in the fitness centre.
Just a 15 minute stroll along the pristine golden sand beaches you’ll find the river tributaries which create the magical pools and sand dunes of the area. You may also want to explore the area further with a half day excursion to remote beaches for a picnic and more adventure. Fans of golf will find one of the most beautiful cliff-top courses in South America nearby. The roads may be bumpy, but the beauty and huge choice of activities here will make you want to come back for more.

It’s only right that somewhere this serene is only reachable by plane. A short hop from Sao Paulo or Rio de Janiero, we can arrange a seamless journey to Trancoso for you.
Why not experience the vibrant capital of Rio too while you’re in Brazil? Staying at the Fasano on a stretch of the uber hip Ipanema beach, you’ll be well centred for hitting the city Black Tomato-style. From the daring (climbing the iconic Sugar Loaf mountain with an expert guide) to the cultural (a private tour of Niteroi Gallery) and the cutting-edge (explore up-and-coming area Santa Teresa), we can put together your ideal itinerary. And the cherry on top? Our in-the-know concierge will recommend you the most fashionable bars, restaurants and clubs when you make your booking, so you’re guaranteed to be in the right place at the right time. Bingo.
