What we like about this property

We love the the modern rustic feel, the use of natural materials and the attention to detail here. Thoughtfully designed and welcoming to the senses, this chic retreat invites you to enjoy the laid back Brazilian lifestyle.

Description

Hidden on a quiet street, yet close to the famous Quadrado and just a fifteen minute walk from Praia dos Nativos, this beautifully designed compound in Trancoso is the product of the art and design skills of a New York based expat couple and their shared passion for the culture and lifestyle of Brazil. 

Starting with just a humble cottage, the property was transformed into a Bohemian chic retreat inspired by Bahian traditions and infused with sharp contemporary design and eye for detail. Collaborating closely with a local architect and craftsmen, the newly-built main house is laid out over two levels and is constructed of wood, glass, polished concrete and white washing to create a contemporary Bohemian feel while the original cottage has retained it’s rustic charm. Divided by the pool area and courtyard gardens, the main house and the cottage each feature a unique mixture of modern details and traditional Bahian elements and both include large Porta Baia doors that open up to the deck area organized around the Indonesian tiled pool – creating a fantastic indoor outdoor habitat.

With a total of three bedrooms (two in the main house and one in the cottage) the property can accommodate up to six and is ideal for family and friends to vacation together with areas for privacy. The fully equipped self catering kitchen is perfect for preparing meals alfresco or you can opt for a private chef.

Stylish, tranquil and very welcoming, this is laid back Brazilian style at it’s best.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, flat screen TV with satellite cable and DVR player. Housekeeping and laundry facilities. Private chef available upon request.

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 Quadrado, to the cobblestoned 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.

    My husband booked Casa Lola as part of my 50th birthday celebration in Brazil. Wow! What a place. The house is tucked into the lovely beach town Trancoso. A place full of charm and wonderfully friendly Bahians. Inside the gates to the home, there is beauty everywhere! Lush greenery, beautiful blue-tiled pool and the impeccably fresh decor of Casa Lola. The pictures beautifully represent the place exactly as it is, but they simply cannot capture the magic you feel while in the house. Maria, the house keeper was wonderful, she does everything with a smile. I could go on and on, but I think it’s fairly obvious how much I loved staying at Casa Lola. Thank you Jan and Ronnie for sharing your amazing home!
    Muito obrigado,

    Casa Lola deserves 10 stars. I sellected this Precious Home to shoot a Catalog and I was enchanted. This is a fantastic place to stay. The house is spotless, furnished thoughtfully, and extremely well unique decorated. So chic but so cozy. The location is so peaceful. I could tell that the owners really took time to make sure this was a great experience for any one staying in the home. The office staff are available, helpful, and very nice to deal with. Its close to the Quadrado, what means you are walking distance from everything. From the moment you open the gate you feel embraced by this charming home. You can tell the love in each decor and you just want to enjoy. This time I came for work but I will definitely be retuning. Perfect!!!

    Casa Lola is a gem within the gem of Trancoso. The house makes you feel right at home. Everything is super comfortable and designed to make your vacation inconspicuously enjoyable. The location, just of the Quadrado, enabled us to enjoy the village to the fullest. Within a week we were greeted like locals. That’s vacation!.
    Absolutely two thumbs up.

    We spent 2 AMAZING weeks at Casa Lola and cherish all our wonderful memories. Early every morning we strolled through the Quadrado to the beach for long walks along secluded beaches.
    Casa Lola is tucked away right off the Quadrado on a charming quiet very sweet road. Once inside you are surrounded by pure comfort and tranquility – we never wanted to leave. Midnight swims, delicious meals, super comfy beds, what more could you want!
    All the wonderful shops, restaurants and activities are right there, literally around the corner to explore at your leisure. I highly recommend a stay there and can’t wait until we can return.
