Bahia, Brazil

Uxua Alma Casa Do Beco


Bambooed abode


Bohemian Bahia

Hidden along the secluded north-west corner of kaleidoscopic Trancoso Quadrado, this homely hideaway is bordered by Brazil’s bushy tropics. Built with local materials, this luxury villa offers natural free-flowing interiors that perfectly match the gentle hum of your nesting neighbours. The three bedrooms are spread across several free-standing structures – that add to an already-exclusive feel – with a separate kitchen and alfresco dining area. Cool off in the pool before de-stressing with an apéritif under the gazebo, or head to the mats for some pre-dinner yoga.
