Etnia Casa Hotel, Trancoso

It is all about relaxation. Whether that means lazing beside a sparkling swimming pool, strolling around a UNESCO listed village or playing golf on a soaring cliff top.

Awake in a white, tented bed to the sound of birds singing. Stroll out onto your private terrace and find yourself amongst the treetops of a natural forest. Twinkling through the foliage is the blue of a swimming pool; cool and invitingly empty at this time in the morning. Beyond lies the ocean, and ahead of you is a day full of promise.

At Etnia Casa Hotel your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Brazil takes on the shape you want. You can choose to relax beside the pool or stroll through the forest. You can play golf on a magnificent clifftop course with the Atlantic as your backdrop. Or you could take a trip into the UNESCO-listed village of Trancoso – a mecca for many of Brazil’s architects, artists, designers and craftsmen.

  • I do not think that we have ever had so much care and attention from a travel company, which just goes to show that (in a good way), you do get what you pay for.
