Casa Turquesa



Casa Turquesa is a small boutique hotel in the historic colonial town of Paraty. This tranquil and stylish retreat, a restored 18th-century town house, is the perfect base for exploring the regions rainforests and sandy beaches. The town of Paraty is rich in history, a UNESCO site with a wealth of colonial architecture. In festival and Carnival time, the town really comes alive, and along with the Bloco da Lama mud festival in February, Paraty also hosts an international literary festival in July. Teresa, the Brazilian owner, has created a calm bolthole right by the port where guests can relax in bright interiors and sunbathe by the plunge pool in the courtyard which also houses a bar. Enjoy friendly service in this homely chic retreat which echoes the artistic atmosphere and colonial history of the town itself.


Casa Turquesa's stylish courtyard is a great place to meet your fellow guests or relax with a book, complete with plunge pool, bar, gazebo and plenty of comfy seating. The pretty town of Paraty has a lively café scene and plenty of art galleries and crafts shops. Come during Carnival, and you can catch the incredible mud festival which takes over the town, or in Full Moon, grab some wellies from the casa and experience the famous flooding of the town where for a few hours, the city streets are filled with water as the tide comes in. Wander the cobbled streets and visit the 18th-century churches and take a visit to the Casa da Cultura which has an exhibition on the history of Paraty. Close by, beautiful sandy beaches await and the rainforests that surround the town are great for hiking and walking. Take a boat trip to the bay of Ilha Grande and you can stop off at the secluded bays for a picnic, a good place for snorkelling. For diving, your hosts can organise a tour where you will see many species of fish, starfish, turtles and ray fish.


Breakfast is served in room or out in the courtyard and lounge, with fruit salad, freh bread, homemade jam, Brazilian custard tarts, yoghurt, granola, eggs-to-order freshly-squeezed juice and great coffee. The menu changes each day with a different fruit, jam, cake and new Brazilian favourite, for instance banana or tapioca with honey, each day. Tapas can be offered throughout the day and guests can enjoy complimentary tea, coffee and cakes in the afternoon. For lunch and dinner, your hosts can recommend some great local restaurants.
