It’s eco-consciousness meets summer palace meets Robinson Crusoe. This elevated treehouse fantasy sprawls across three levels, with its “green” credentials coming from the recycled wood that makes up its walls, its traditionally applied thatched roof, and the organic materials scattered throughout its interior. Yet despite its rustic appearance, this is no ascetic hippie enclave: little luxuries (and big surprises) are hidden throughout, including large covered veranda/al fresco living room with hammock and bar, the bathroom’s double shower, and spa tub on the outdoor deck. Guests shouldn’t miss the hanging swing underneath the casa, a perfect site for a private sundowner with a significant other.
Above a remote stretch of Brazil’s Bahian coastline sits an enchanting fishing village called Trancoso. On the town’s historic green (the Quadrado) is a secret garden holding a luxurious hideaway; nine 1-3 bedroom houses built and decorated in collaboration with local artisans using traditional building methods, recycled materials, and exquisite attention to detail. Complemented by spa, restaurant, and beachfront lounge, UXUA sets new standards of rustic design & luxury.
