Villa Lily was built in the beautiful Beach of Rio Verde by will of an eclectic citizen of the world who, in 2014, decided to leave for a long trip with his inseparable Chevrolet vintage, leaving the management of the property to a French chef and to a curator of events from Sao Paulo. This couple worked together for a substantial and functional restyling of the property, creating an extraordinary and unconventional place with a very strong character. The uniqueness of this residence is the imperceptible line between sea, beach and social areas that are beautifully blended into a single environment without boundaries but at the same time very private. Villa Lily can accommodate up to 8 people; it is on two levels and it is characterized by a bridge structure. Upstairs there is an apartment with a rooftop terrace, living room, master suite with shower and Jacuzzi, dining room and kitchen. On the ground floor, there are two bedrooms with green bathrooms. Between the two bedrooms, the scenic dining room finds its ideal place overlooking the sea, a small piece of paradise that marks the passage from the sea to the lush garden, where there is the kitchen and the breakfast area. Further down in the garden you can see a tower on stilts, that is home to a comfortable and panoramic suite with bathroom and kitchen. Underneath it, there is a private lounge area. Nearby, well-placed in the context, there is an additional cottage that can accommodate, if necessary, up to 4 guests in two bedrooms with a shared bathroom. All rooms are equipped with air-conditioning. Wi-Fi is available in the common areas. A garage, a kayak and a surfboard complete the amenities of Villa Alma.
Located high on a hill, the small village of Trancoso is a district of Porto Seguro and one of the most sought after locations on the coast of Bahia. It is an ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of big cities and rest at beaches with fine sand and warm water. Founded in 1586 by the Jesuits, the city’s main attractions are its beaches, some are deserted, as Itaquena and Patimirim, in addition to the famous Quadrado Histórico (Historical Square). Preserved by the Instituto do Patrimônio Histórico e Artístico Nacional (Iphan), the Historic Square is full of colorful houses, inns, restaurants both rugged and chic, and hand made craft shops. The best tour in Trancoso are the beaches, with stands where you can drink and eat typical Bahian food, like the acarajé (fried beans dumpling stuffed with dried shrimp and seasonings). Ten minutes from the village is the Praia dos Coqueiros, with reefs that form natural water pools at low tide and are perfect for diving.
