Beachside Bliss In Trancoso | Villas De Trancoso

Villas de Trancozo - Brazil - 6

Sprawling green lawns lead straight to the beach at Villas de Trancoso – the town’s top beachside hotel. As the gates open and the staff come to welcome you into their paradise, it’s evident you’re somewhere special – somewhere you’ll never want to leave. I stayed here for three nights recently and absolutely fell in love with the charm, atmosphere and ambiance this place offers.

Guests reserve private homes on the property, which are serviced and treated as such. Privacy is key here and everything is effortless. The hotel was full when I was staying, yet I seemed to never see anyone around. There is a good amount of space to get lost, explore and relax in. I spent most of my time taking beach walks on the powdered, creamy sand in front of the hotel.

My villa here was large and offered two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was cozy, plush and very comfortable. I constantly fought with myself in the evenings as to whether it was better to stay in with a glass of wine and television, or step-out onto the town for a bite to eat. Both options were good, but that’s how happy I was here.

Villas are done with local materials – even sinks and fixtures are hand-carved out of native wood.

Flower gardens surround each villa and you can see hummingbirds and other creatures perusing about them early in the morning.

Breakfast at Villas de Trancoso is served buffet-style and everything is homemade. Of course, you can order eggs a-la-carte, but the table is stocked with fresh Brazilian cheeses, cakes, pastries, fruit and more.
