Parati, Ilha Grande and the Costa Verde: Casa Cairucu

Casa Cairucu

The lovely oceanfront Casa Cairucu is the ideal base for independent exploration of the bays and colonial settlements of Brazil’s idyllic Emerald Coast. It's a serviced self-catering property accommodating up to eight – whether family, friends or just you and your partner – but offers all the elegance of a boutique hotel.

Recently built in the style of a classic Brazilian summer house, with plenty of light and space, Casa Cairuçu sits on a rocky cliff smothered in tropical vegetation. The surrounding area is well-protected, unsullied by traffic and dotted with clean beaches, timeless fishing villages and forest trails.  

The beautiful yet simply decorated home, full of the colours of the sea and sky, has three en suite rooms with sea views and a further single en suite room next door, cooled by ceiling fans and the sea breeze. There’s a fully equipped kitchen and a small library of CDs, DVDs, books and board games for balmy evenings or rainy days. To ensure you really feel like you're on holiday rather than bogged down in chores, there’s a daily maid service and assistance with supermarket ordering. 

You may well be tempted to just relax in a hammock on the property, but there’s lots to do in the area: top of the list must be a visit to the nearby colonial port of Paratí, chock-a-block with Portuguese houses lining its quaint lanes alongside art galleries, boutiques, bars and restaurants. Equally rewarding is a trip by schooner around the island-studded bay. There's also snorkelling equipment, fishing rods and two double kayaks at the house.
