Trancoso, Brazil
Hidden Paths Along the Quadrado

The famous Quadrado offers a window into the unfolding life and rhythms of Trancoso’s heart, and this distinctive compound allows you direct access as well as a more interior perspective within this special community.  Hidden along a narrow and private path or “Beco,” you'll find this micro-neighborhood of quiet homes and guesthouses just steps from the town square. 

Casa das Artes, Trancoso, Brazil | vacation home rentals

This collection of unique casas created by designer Wilbert Das is a hidden paradise of rustic, freestanding, interrelated living spaces surrounded by lush gardens that invokes the feeling of simpler times and laid-back tropical living. 

Collaborating closely with local artisans using traditional techniques, Das' passion for the culture and lifestyle is evident throughout, with handcrafted materials, and colorful imagery, iconography and character.

Designed with a natural sense of belonging, the property celebrates the soul and sensibilities of the Bahian culture with beautiful handcrafted detail, imagination and style.

Hidden behind a simple wooden gate, it is a private tropical compound of freestanding structures spread throughout the gardens and connected via paths and wooden decks. 

The main structure with its cobalt blue hue is the central gathering spot with a large eat—in kitchen and dining area with shady verandas overlooking the three separate guest units with the sparkling pool, gazebo, and outdoor dining areas forming the heart of the home. The colorful independent suites offer guests a comforting sense of privacy, when sharing the property. 

Inspired by authentic Bahian traditions, the interiors are a mix of light, contemporary and handcrafted pieces created from rich local wood with traditional Pataxó Indian crafts, textiles and art.

The lush tropical gardens extend along the Beco into the Quadrado and the ancient and wild rainforests where you'll share the jungle landscape with the local monkeys and exotic birds.

With a laid-back sense of ease and a stylish simplicity, this is the perfect homage to the best of Trancoso.

AROUND

The charming and rustic town of Trancoso sits along the southern region of the Atlantic coast of Bahia along beautiful stretches of unspoiled shoreline.

A former laid back hippy destination, the town is attracting a more jet set crowd of late but remains laid back. From the UNESCO designated Quadrado, to the cobble stone streets and candy colored houses, this bluff side village hums along at a dreamy pace. The nearby beaches of Praia do Espelho, Praia dos Nativos, Rio da Barra are to the north and Rio Verde, Itaquema and Ponta de Itapororoca are to the south.

Further North is the historic town of Arraial D’Ajuda in the district of Porto Seguro belonging to the region known as Discovery Coast (Costa do Descobrimento), where Portuguese explorers arrived in 1500. A peaceful and unique seaside village, it’s located on a plateau overlooking the breathtaking coastline.

Casa das Artes 2 Br 2 Ba Sleeps 4 Min 3 nights
from R$3500 /nt
The casa makes an immediate impact with a striking mix of bright tropical colors set against soft pastels that form a cheerful backdrop for an inspired and authentic Bahian experience. The interiors are bright and spacious with high ceilings and large windows that frame the tranquil scenes of Quadrado life. There’s a fully equipped eat in kitchen and two bright and dreamy bedrooms that can accommodate up to four guests one of which is inspired by the African painted houses of Burkino Faso. Artworks throughout include stunning paintings by Marcelo Cipis, Pato Rammsy, and Caio Pataxó (a native Indian painter working under tutelage of Wilbert Das), vintage tapestries from Kennedy Bahia, Indian silk saris, and antique German school posters, as well as photography by Melanie Dunea. The one-of-a-kind furnishings, decor and lighting were contributed by talents such as Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba, Rodrigo Almeida, Lucas Simoes, Mauro Zolin, and Peter Kempkens. The indoor/outdoor areas take advantage of the breezy sub-tropical Bahian lifestyle – with sofas and hammocks for lounging, an open-air shower and vintage bathtub surrounded by flowering gardens, and a four-person outdoor hot tub spa. There are two al fresco dining areas, one directly on the Quadrado under the shade of a towering amendoeira tree planted 35-years ago by Vegetal and his artist friends.

A Casinha 2 Br 2 Ba Sleeps 4 Min 3 nights
from R$2100 /nt
Once a traditional fishermen’s residence, the recent renovation was overseen by Manoel Amorosino – creator of Trancoso’s iconic Thaicoso shop and restaurant. Combining clever design ideas with local furnishings, including limited edition pieces selected, the home is the perfect introduction to tropical living Trancoso-style. With its colonial façade and simple pitched roof, A Casinha appears from the outside to be a typical Quadrado casa, but its interiors are in the style of classical Mediterranean villas, with the center of the structure opening out to a central courtyard and patio. This clever adaptation of space makes the house feel larger and open, with a natural flow from inside out and bright, inviting spaces that offer the warmth of the sun or cool shady areas and sheltered evenings under the stars. The two bedroom suites offer flexibility for visitors with two en-suite options that can accommodate up to four guests.

Casa Anderson 3 Br 5 Ba Sleeps 6 Min 3 nights
from R$6700 /nt
The main structure with its colonial facade overlooks the Quadrado from an outdoor veranda with large windows in the living area, dining rooms and custom kitchen illuminated by sunlight through glass tiles above. Next to it are three guest suites designed by local craftsmen, each a triumph of artisanal skill and imagination, anchored at the rear by a vast pool and rustic outdoor lounge forming an ultra-private rainforest oasis. Nestled under the tropical canopy, a cozy bungalow of weathered brick houses the first guest suite. A second independent bungalow is masterfully sculpted with earthen pau a pique walls and the third bedroom, a soaring treehouse, is built from reclaimed hardwoods, and is suspended above an outdoor living room with its own kitchen and bar overlooking the pool and rainforest.

Casa Mirante 4 Br 4 Ba Sleeps 8 Min 3 nights
from R$5600 /nt
Immersed within lush tropical gardens, the house is almost completely obscured from view enveloping you in peaceful privacy and natural beauty. Developed in close collaboration with local artisans using traditional techniques, the culture and lifestyle is evident throughout, with handcrafted details, reclaimed native wood and authentic design with a mix of furnishings and customized pieces. The bright airy living areas are cozy and uncomplicated, with multiple interconnected social spaces providing both a sense of connection as well as independence. The fully equipped kitchen is ideal for entertaining with numerous dining areas inside and out. The bedrooms suites are split – with one on each floor in the main house, and two in a cabana next to the swimming pool, with romantic panoramas of the Quadrado and coastline from the balcony of the master suite. There are vast terraces and decks around the swimming pool, a sunset deck on the west side of the house, and a low-key, rounded veranda, full of deep cushioned sofas and chairs and an outdoor fireplace at its center with plenty of lounge areas under the tropical canopy.
