Itinerary details



Set between jagged mountain peaks and sweeping beaches, watched over by the iconic Christ the Redeemer, the intoxicating city of Rio de Janeiro is widely considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Soak up the sun and do some people watching on the world-famous beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, and take the cable car up Sugarloaf Mountain for panoramic views. As the sun sets, sip on a caipirinha – the perfect sundowner.   Stay at Vila Santa Teresa, which sits in lush tropical gardens on a family estate, with fantastic views over the city. Stroll around the colonial mansions and cobbled streets of Santa Teresa, and enjoy a candlelit dinner overlooking Sugarloaf Mountain.

3 nightsSALVADOR

Salvador da Bahia is an Afro-Brazilian melting pot, a showcase of historic architecture and ornate churches, and Brazil’s cultural capital Brazil’s unique arts, including capoeira, a distinctively Brazilian dance – give your feet a workout while you’re here! You’re also bound to catch the infectious festivals that take place all year round. You’re never far from beautiful beaches in Brazil, and you’ll find some gems along the coast. Villa Bahia inhabits two historic houses in the heart of Salvador, surrounded by churches, museums and bustling markets. After a day’s sightseeing, cool off in the pool and enjoy the views from the roof terrace.

4 nightsTRANCOSO

The pretty clifftop fishing village of Trancoso is much loved by the locals (and by us). After walking down to the beach for the day, head to the candlelit main square, Quadrado, whose simple white church overlooks the ocean, for some shopping and dinner. Your hotel, Etnia, is a sophisticated retreat that’s full of character and style, not far from both Trancoso’s centre and the beach, and you can relax in your own private garden.
