Ilheus Villa 01

This villa is located on a coastal farm near Ilhéus.  It is a 40 minute drive from Ilhéus airport and then a short drive along a dirt road to the gates of the property. You can reach the villa from the mangrove along a river or from the beach depending on the tide.

The scenery around the villa is breathtaking as it is located on a 10km stretch of deserted beach. The house is unpretentious and tastefully decorated. The owner is an artist and her colourful printed fabrics are spread around the house on cushions, pictures and other items, which gives the house a colourful, relaxed atmosphere.  Every detail has been thought of in the lay out of this fabulous villa, including the large glass windows and a fantastic team which includes a great cook.

If you can drag yourself away from the pool, or from one of the sun loungers under a coconut tree, you can walk along a footpath to a gorgeous crystal clear lake on the property. This is ideal for swimming, paddle boarding or simply meditating on the deck overlooking the water. Whatever you choose to do, we are certain of one thing, this property is as close to paradise as you can get.

Paraty Villa 11

You only need a few minutes in Villa 11 before you realise why the owners of this house fell in love with Paraty back in the 1960s. 

The villa has three suites and is located 10 minutes by boat from Paraty’s historic centre.  It is surrounded by lush Atlantic rainforest and a magical garden, with an abundance of native trees and tropical flowers.  There are two hiking trails within the property which take in the ruins of an imperial fort with its original canons and a 360 degree view of the bay of Paraty. 

The villa’s landlord owns the well known Pousada do Sandi in Paraty’s historical centre.  The internal décor is tasteful and stylish with floor to ceiling windows which show off the spectacular tropical rainforest and emerald green sea. The staff are well trained and include a cook, cleaner, housekeeper and sailor. 

There is a paddle board, a wakeboard and kayak available for guest use.  Should you wish to visit some of the many tropical islands in the area or gather mussels at the mussel farm in Pouso da Cajaiba, there are two speedboats available to hire.
