Perks for the Parents

This beautiful and bohemian villa with a sunken pool set in tropical greenery is in the hip beach town of Trancoso. It sleeps up to 8. Rest assured, parents can take it easy – there’s a concierge on hand to book a private chef if you’d like one, babysitters or car rental. Also available are activities such as horseback riding, surfing, capoeira, cooking, golf, yoga, kite surfing and massage. For a fee, you can have your own personalized itinerary arranged that might include day trips to the exotic Espelho beach, Caraíva beach, boat rides, and water parks.

Why Kids Love it

Teenagers, a nanny or grandparents will love the cottage or the Lemon Tree suite, where you can have some privacy from the main house but still socialize together. Casa Lola is a short walk to the shops and town where you can find outdoor restaurants, live music and shops lining the grassy square of the Quadrado, which comes alive at night. The beaches are plentiful with fine sand and clear waters – perfect for activities including horseback riding, surfing, kite surfing, picnicking and long walks.

About the Location

The residence is in the village of Trancoso in the south of the Bahia province, a 15 minute walk to the beach. Trancoso is often dubbed Brazil’s best hidden beach town for its 15-mile stretch of golden sand, intimate beach community, colorful adobe houses and a rustic vibe mixed with sophisticated dining and shopping. The beaches around here are plentiful and so lovely they’re UNESCO-protected. To get here, fly to Porto Seguro International Airport (BPS), which is about an hour from the property. Transfers or car hire can be arranged by the property's concierge.

Accommodation Details

The residence has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms spread out over a main house, cottage and a private suite. A travel crib is available on request. Downstairs in the main house is an open living area with a lounge couch, TV, dining table and kitchen – there is also a second kitchen off this main kitchen. The large glass sliding doors open to a decked area with large day bed. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms – 1 kingsize and 1 double/ full – that share a balcony. Both have private bathrooms with showers. Across the deck from the main house is the cottage, with a kingsize bedroom, living room and bathroom with a shower and bath. The Lemon Tree is a double height private suite with a kingsize bedroom, ensuite bathroom and upstairs reading area with its own outside sitting area. All buildings cluster around the swimming pool, BBQ, lush gardens, and an outside eating area under a pergola.

Style Notes

Contemporary rustic luxury. There’s a languid dreaminess to this chic hideaway full of design features to die for. Casa Lola has been designed with care by its NYC-based owner, designer Jan Eleni. Every design detail is carefully curated. From the artisan-made cement bathroom in the cottage to the polished concrete floors and reclaimed wood benches. The villa is like a treasure box of Eleni’s global finds – from Indonesian volcanic tiles that line the pool to a chandelier and metal chair from Paris and the cottage’s copper faucet knobs in the shower made by local artisans. We love the novelty shower head made from a discarded tree, the deep and tranquil pool and the gorgeous splashes of rustic color amongst the greenery. She's created a dream of a getaway!

NYC native, Jan Eleni and her Dutch born husband Ronnie - together with their daughter Lola visited friends in Trancoso, Brasil. They quickly embraced the tranquility and culture of the idyllic village of Trancoso. After a few short days they knew they wanted to create their own memories - and embrace the adventure, Casa Lola' came to fruit in 2011.

Luxury on the beach

Life is lived at a relaxed pace in this former fishing village turned barefoot chic hangout, an hour and a half's flight north of Rio de Janeiro on the south Atlantic coast. The beaches are beautiful - some fringed with palm trees, others with beach bars - and when the tide goes out, reefs create perfect natural swimming pools for tots.
