We stayed one week in Villas de Trancoso and it was beyond expectations. The drive from the airport is a bit of a challenge, due to the bad roads, but Eduardo is an experienced driver and got us there safely around midnight. In our Villa were some sandwiches and fruit. Nice touch and thoughtful! Accommodation: We booked the Villa, which...

We spent the day at the beach of the hotel, it was really cool. The infrastructure is really nice, the staff very helpful, the drinks and food are great. Prices are not cheap at all, Trancoso is very expensive for what really offers. We took our daughter (1 year), and it was great.

We spent 3 days here after a 3 week trip around Brazil. The villas are beautiful, private and set in lovely grounds behind an almost deserted white sandy beach.
