The most palatial of UXUA’s casas, Eugenia gets all the angles right. Garden location amid masses of verdant greenery? Check. Outdoor dining terrace for al fresco dinner parties? Check. Master suite with warehouse-sized bathroom, replete with antique tub? Check. Add overarching views of UXUA’s private gardens, a second bedroom suite with private balcony, indoor/outdoor kitchen, bright, airy spaces and the surrounding cocoon of trees – indeed, some poke through the roof – and you’ve got the grande dame of the UXUA property, christened after one of the most prominent of the casa’s trees. Of course, this grande dame loves green: with some surprising eco-conscious touches including a sofa covered with canvas material recycled from Amazonian truck covers.
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.
