A tastefully converted 17th-century townhouse, Casa Turquesa sits along a quiet street, overlooking the docks, in the heart of Paraty’s historic centre. With only a handful of suites, it combines understated, homely luxury with elegance and a certain artistry.

Set out by sailboat to discover some of the 200 beaches and 65 islands of Paraty. Spend the morning island-hopping before stopping at a private beach for a spoiling lunch of grilled lobster and champagne.
Immerse yourself in the rich culture and heritage of this part of Brazil. Taste cachaça at a local distillery. Arrange a ceramic workshop at a local artist’s atelier or organise a Brazilian cooking class with a local chef.
One day explore the beauty of the Costa Verde by foot. Follow trails through dense rainforest to discover deserted waterfalls and take a refreshing dip in its cool waters.
For those after a quieter day, Paraty is a haven for art galleries, bohemian shops and antique stores. Stroll along the cobblestone streets, absorbing the artistic side of the town before returning for a massage and cocktail at Casa Turquesa.
In the evenings, enjoy dinner at one of Paraty’s exquisite, candlelit restaurants that spill out onto its charming streets.
We recommend staying here for 2 – 3 nights.
Casa Turquesa is a four hour drive from Rio de Janeiro and a four and a half hour drive from São Paulo. There are regular flights to both Rio and São Paulo from cities across Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
There is also the option to arrange a private charter directly to Paraty Airstrip.
It is warm throughout the year in Paraty, with the hottest period in the summer between November and February. As well as plenty of sunshine, during this season you can expect some tropical rainfall and higher humidity.
Paraty is busiest during the build up to carnival in February and March.
We’d recommend visiting in July when there’s the Paraty Literature Festival and the temperatures are cooler.
