A Hidden Jewel in Trancoso - CASA TIBA

I was struck by the beauty of design of the villa captured in this photo above. When I first came across this photo on an online interior magazine a while ago, the villa was introduced just as an example of beautiful architecture and interior design. I was like "wow, this is my dream house" . . .

Restored fisherman houses, natural/reclaimed materials, Brazilian craftsmanship and antiques, a flowing transition of indoor/outdoor living, along with the concept of preserving the local traditions and environment… all of the elements in this hotel make me smile.

This lovely hotel located in 'Quadrado', the center of Trancoso, Brazil, represents laid-back southern Bahian lifestyle. It's not difficult to imagine that if you stay here, you will feel like local. That's what I want when traveling.

Colorful, Cute Houses in Trancoso

Photos taken in Trancoso, a tiny fishing village in Bahia, Brazil.

These colorfully painted houses were originally fisherman houses and now turned into boutiques, bars and restaurants, and inns.

Rustic, chic, simple, natural… are the keywords I'm always drawn to. Every single element of this vacation villa in Trancoso, Brazil, pleases my eyes. The villa has warm welcoming atmosphere, yet sophisticated in details. No wonder. This beautiful house is completed by a New York based interior designer.

White Washed Church, A Symbol of Trancoso

"The main square as the 'Quadrado' is perched on a cliff, overlooking 2 rivers and the ocean. Standing at the end is the beautiful white washed São João Batista Church - Brazil's 2nd oldest Church." - CASA LOLA
