Our Vision ... A Unique Holiday Retreat for Families and Friends

The vision of Villas de Trancoso came to life in 2001 when I passed through the small fishing village of Trancoso, Brazil. That visit brought me to a beautiful palm studded beach that was soon to become my home. Since that time Trancoso has gained recognition for its charming village and festive party atmosphere but people still come to enjoy the privacy and serenity of one of the most beautiful stretches of beach on earth.

Our size, 10 luxury villas and suites, enable us to provide a customized and very special experience for our guests. Whether you are a family with children or a young honeymoon couple our staff is always present to help. Activities are abundant in the area and include adventures to remote beaches, horseback riding, biking, paddle boarding, swimming, four wheeling and of course beach activities galore. Did I mention golf. Two kilometers down the beach you will find the Terravista Golf Course. One of the top courses in South America the course runs along cliffs and sea as well as through Brazilian rain forest.  

We are located on a beautiful stretch of golden sand known as Nativos beach. With a perfect year round climate you will find guests and visitors on the beach most every day. Water temperatures and tides make for perfect ocean activities for both young and old. Food and beverage service is always available including sumptuous snacks and juices. Comfortable sofas and lounges offer the perfect place to relax with friends, read and .....yes we are wireless and connected.  

As the sun sets and evening descends our restaurant comes to life. Set in immaculate lighted gardens around a white marble pool we offer the perfect romantic setting coupled with fine cuisine. Many of our guests however are ready to venture out to the village of Trancoso. Much of the village is set in the Trancoso Quadrado where you will find shops, bars, and restaurants all lit by candle light and torches. Yes...it is a special place where one finds locals and visitors alike strolling through the area and enjoying the magic and beauty of this historical place.

For those seeking a destination far from the beaten path, golden sand beaches, an almost perfect year round climate, fine cuisine, attentive staff and a return to nature we welcome you to come, smile, relax and share in the beauty of our village, our beaches and our creation.
