Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Thanks to the Italian owners' background in fashion and design, there's a decidedly stylish feel to Etnia Pousada & Boutique. Nestled amongst woodland just off the town's main square, the nine bungalows have each been individually designed and lovingly furnished with pieces from all over the world. Add to this the sparkling pool that beckons for a pre-breakfast swim and you've got yourself a tropical retreat that you'll be dreaming of long after you return to your desk.
You’re not directly on the beach but Trancoso's golden shores are only a stroll away and the charming owners and their staff here will do whatever they can to make your stay memorable. Enjoy.
Breakfast is served by the pool, or on the bungalows' balcony and features a range of homemade cakes, yogurts, jams, bread.
Whilst there's no restaurant on site per se, light snacks and drinks are available from the poolside bar throughout the day.
Surrounded by shady woods, the nine bungalows are spacious and rather romantic, each taking a slightly different theme and named accordingly. Gentle pops of pastel colour from artworks and licks of paint give it a subtle, hip edge . The larger villas offer more space – perfect if you're travelling as a family.
The lovely pool is the perfect spot to while away a lazy afternoon and, if you're looking to pamper yourself, massages are available on request.
The lovely Quadrado square with it's stunning views and quaint and colourful houses is just a 5-minute walk from the hotel along with some great shopping and plenty of cafés and restaurants.
