An ultra-friendly, top quality and homely boutique property where you'll really feel at ease.

Casa Turquesa is justly celebrated as among Paraty's most delightful places to stay. An 18th century former aristocratic residence, a stone's throw from the colonial centre of town, it is now a first-class, boutique bed-and-breakfast of graceful character.

The vibrancy of its exterior is just the beginning: each of the nine romantic guest suites is individually styled and complemented by a vivid, colour-themed bathroom, from tropical magenta to lime-green and ocean-blue. Traditional colonial and modern artifacts complement each other on the walls and polished wood furniture.

The young and enthusiastic team does everything to ensure that you feel at home from the moment you arrive, with cosy, inviting spaces in which to unwind in the tastefully furnished book-lined lounge and in the nooks and crannies of the courtyard garden, where a plunge pool is embraced by exotic foliage.
