For the more adventurous type, Northeastern Brazil is considered one of the most beautiful areas in all of the country, especially the south of Bahia, located strategically between Trancoso and Caraíva.

A special place!
We visited Viela da Vista in February and hosted 4 other couples. It’s a beautiful, quiet, private community. Mario went out of his way to make sure that our stay was perfect. He was so helpful in planning our stay and while we were there. We began with a day in Rio and wished we had stayed two! We had a driver and guide show us the high points but there was more to experience. If you’re going all that way, I recommend spending a few days in Rio. After Rio, we flew to Puerto Seguro, rented a car and drove the 1.5 hours to the house. We found that cell service was very sketchy on the drive so be sure to print the directions before you go. The last 45 minutes of the drive is on a dirt road. Mario can help get you there but be prepared for the drive. it is possible to take a ferry from PUerto Seguro but either way, it is still about an hour and a half drive. The house is open air and we were there during the end of summer. It was very hot so we stayed at the beach and beach club most days. The private beach club was an easy 10 minute walk and the beach is so beautiful. The poolside tropical drinks are delicious, the service is wonderful and the food is delicious! Make sure to have the fried shrimp and the fresh seafood and vegetables! The evenings were a bit buggy (bring lots of bug spray) and warm at the house so we ate out in the community restaurants most nights. They are all only a short walk within the community on dirt roads. The community is gated and very safe. It’s the kind of place that you want to take your loved ones. We read books, played games, told stories, took walks and painted together. Take flip flops, bathing suits and lots of linen and light cotton. Many nights, we had entire restaurants to ourselves. We found the people happy to serve us, the food delicious and the atmosphere peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend this lovely place! It’s a real treat! Take a day (or evening) and make a trip to Trancoso. It’s a quaint coastal town with colorful storefronts and yummy food...soccer in the town square and the most amazing view of the water from many of the restaurants. It’s a 45 minute drive from the house. Since we were all the way in Brazil, at the end of our stay, we traveled to the Iguazu Falls. We saw them from both Brazil and Argentina via a private guide. They are truly an amazing sight to see! We then spent four days in Buenos Aires. We would go back to all of these places, perhaps in cooler months, but we will go again...and recommend you try it! ”
Great house in great location
Large and comfortable house, with helpful and friendly staff, organized by very responsive and helpful owner. Decor is simple and not every room is bright, but the laid back feel is perfect for the location/occasion. We had a great stay! Thanks!”
