Casas da Vila, Trancoso, Brazil
Cabanas in the colours of jelly beans line the streets and piazzas of this bohemian Brazilian village and you will find that Casas da Vila Trancoso is pleasantly frayed around the edges.
Whatever the reason, a little blue bungalow close to the beach, with hardly any windows and everything scuffed enough to put your feet on can only be good for the heart.
Clapboard shutters on the windows and doors open up to a leafy garden and private pool and allow balmy breezes to float through the interior of each homes is a mix of the rustic and the artistic, with decorative elements like an antique mirror and dressmaker’s dummy adding a touch of vintage elegance.
A mix of local art and craft blends with colourful antiques and elements of whimsy.
Casas da Vila is a wonderful choice for honeymooners, couples or a private group who are interested in seeing a side of Brazil that remains invisible to most tourists.
