Casa Turquesa Guest House, Brazil

Stand on the balcony of your elegant room, looking out onto one of Paraty’s quaint streets and you will almost certainly become a figure in any number of tourist ‘I was there’ photographs. Don’t worry, you’re not being hounded by the paparazzi; the recreated 18th century Casa Turquesa is the star of the show – it’s just so idyllic it has to be snapped.

As part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Brazil, Casa Turquesa has other advantages too. It gives you immediate access to the shops, restaurants, bars, nightlife, cultural opportunities and fascinating sights of the bustling town of Paraty. Yet it is also quite an exclusive experience – this boutique haven has just nine rooms, so when you stay here you really are amongst the privileged few.
