Casa das Brisas

Casa das Brisas

Trancoso, Southern Bahia, Brazil

The perfect beach house. Sand stops just at the doorstep and Brisas is in the very best part of Trancoso. Harper’s ‘Top 15 rentals in the World’…

Casa das Brisas is stylish yet simple and has everything you could wish for in a low-key luxury beach house. Understated but Centurion Magazine declared it ‘One of the most perfect beach houses in the world’ and Harpers Bazaar went a step further to vote it in the ‘Top 15 villa rental properties in the world’.

Design and decoration of the house are in keeping with its surroundings, lots of wooden furniture, beautiful jacaranda wood floors, natural fabrics and muslin drapes. Wooden beams and makuti thatch and wooden shutters and blinds are lifted by white upholstery, covers and mosquito nets – but designs are contemporary and fittings are of high standard. A wide veranda runs along the front of the house, offering beautiful views of the ocean and a breakfast deck at the back. There is a TV area with projector, fully equipped kitchen and large, open-plan lounge and dining room. In front of the house is a garden with coconut palms and a few yards of path lead down to the beach, ideal for long walks and swims. The sound of the waves and wind blowing though coconut palms is the perfect soundtrack for your holiday.

The house is in the most sought after part of Trancoso. On the beach in perfect privacy, it is still just a 10 minute drive to the bars and restaurants of the Quadrado. As well as having the best beaches in Southern Bahia, Trancoso has a very pretty colonial heart, set on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The grassy main square known for its colourful native houses is presided over by a small church and has dazzling views of beach and ocean. In the evening everyone heads to the Quadrado to sip Caipirinhas, browse the boutiques and compare notes of their days in paradise.
