Villa Nandie is located in the beautiful state of Alagoas, where you will find century-old villages, intact with their pristine beaches, palm and coconut farms, and a lively upbeat local culture.
The Brazilian coral reef, Costa dos Corais, is protected and together with the Caribbean-style green and azure waters, coral fish and 90 degree (27 degrees Celsius) ocean temperature combine to make this a truly special spot. Outside the reef, experienced divers will find dolphins, reef sharks, giant turtles, 7 foot fish and sunken Dutch vessels.
Contrary to most Caribbean and Brazilian destinations, all produce is local, and everything from coconuts to fruits to vegetables and, of course, seafood comes not from a general store, but absolutely fresh and from the day's collection efforts.
The house is 1h 45m from the international airport of Maceio, or, alternatively, 2 hours from the Recife airport, with direct flights to/from Europe. In addition, private helicopter transfers are only 25 minutes.
Patacho Beach was awarded by the leading Brazilian travel guide - "4 Rodas", on five occasions as one of Brazil's most beautiful beaches.
The 12,000 sq ft house is very secluded and has been designed using native style coconut farm architecture. It features 1.1 million sq ft of isolated property with rare botanical species (8 facing extinction), hundreds of one-off palms and two lakes.

Beyond our Expectations
We had an absolutely glorious time in this beautiful home. Words cannot begin to describe its beauty and the area. The house - beautiful decor, stunning views from every spot, lovely pool, hammocks. The beach - absolutely peaceful. Untouched, just local fisherman, maybe a few people pass by each day, and crashing waves. There is a beautiful covered deck hanging over the beach and in the evening the tide comes in and the water is crashing at your feet. The weather - we were there at the end of rainy season but only had a little bit of rain for an hour or two a couple of times in 2 weeks. It was hot but the breeze is constant and so you never felt the heat. The owners and manager were extremely gracious and helpful and really wanted us to have a lovely time. The staff - Oh my gosh what beautiful people. The caretaker Marcos took care of every need and desire. The chef "Chico" was so much fun and very talented. Fresh fish, seafood, delicous sauces, fresh fruit...Genilson the waiter was hardworking and looked after our every need, The ladies Ana and Adrianna made us breakfast every day and kept the place clean and even did our laundry. They all became like family and we cried when we had to leave. They even put on a surprise party for our friends anniversary. The area - the area has about 8-10 Poussadas ( small b and b's) that all have lovely restaurants and beautiful style. We had a few lovely lunches and dinners out to give the staff a bit of a break. This are is beautiful and untouched by mass tourism which makes it so special. it is primarily a place to relax and unwind but we did lots - visited manatees, villages, rented bikes on deserted beaches that were miles long, Jangada boat trips and snorkelling, paddle boarding and kayaks, tennis (there is a lovely tennis court and even an instructor for hire), paragliding, We felt very safe the entire time. This is a little piece of heaven - it was a long way but completely worth it. Hope to go back again one day. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. ”
We had the most amazing week at Villa Nandie! Pure Bliss! The house is beautiful, very comfortable and the sea is a gift from God! All the servants were very nice and efficient. We really recommend this experience!”
Vila Nandie is a very special place. It is a wonderful and big property with stunning decoration and breathtaking views from the ocean. The beach is ranked number 5 in Brazil for a reason, there are few places in the world you can see this colors in the ocean. The house is very confortable and well planed. The decoration is unique with art pieces picked by hand by the owner. The house is fully equipped with premium housewares and new bed wear and towels. The staff is so friendly and well trained, you don't have to worry with anything. The cooker is another attraction since you are going to have some delicious meals, specially seafood and deserts from the region. Our family had an unforgettable week, we truly recommend it !!!”
