Casa Turquesa is perfectly placed in Paraty’s historic centre. Set on a quiet street and overlooking the docks, this iconic guest house perfectly reflects the charm and history of the town.
This 17th mansion has been restored by Renato Tavolaro, who specialises in colonial architecture, to ensure a building which reflects its colourful and vibrant history combined with luxury and comfort of a bespoke guest house. The large atrium offers a relaxing communal space and the numerous wide windows and open balconies offer the perfect spot to appreciate the Bay, its beautiful islands and the mountains surrounding Santa Rita Church, this really is an ideal location.
Each room is individually colour themed and decorated with natural materials, local textiles and regional art. Rooms are light and airy with windows overlooking pretty views of the town. Bathrooms are spacious with powerful showers and king-sized beds are made up with Egyptian cotton and surrounded by dreamy mosquito nets.
The guest house has created a beautiful tropical garden with a plunge pool and decking areas. There is also a mini spa which offers manicures and massage treatments. For those wishing to explore, the guest house can organise trips to explore the historic city or beautiful sea.
The garden is the perfect spot to enjoy afternoon tea which comes with a mixture of British and French delicacies which are all homemade. Breakfast is a perfect combination of Brazilian produce and a European menu. Brazilian coffee, cakes, pancakes and your choice of eggs are served with freshly baked bread, exotic fruit and yogurts. It is generous in its portions, locally sourced and presented beautifully. The bar serves a wide range of wines from around the world and caipirinhas made from local and seasonal fruit.
