We spent 5 nights in Villas de Trancoso. The place is perfect, villas are large and luxurious, staff is wonderful - they even arranged activities for us - the beach and setting is breathtaking, and the food is delicious. The two bedroom villas are great for families of 4 or 5. Our kids loved it, especially the surf and free... More

Our travel agency recommended this hotel and it was a perfect choice. The hotel is an oasis in charming Trancoso with a very personal touch. The rooms as well as the restaurant and salon are beatifully decorated with personally selected furniture. The food is very good and you should try Etnia's own sparkling wine which is superb. The best feature,... More

The service was discreet and very efficient, attentive to all our needs. We had great food by the pool in the evenings, breakfasts were excellent and varied everyday. Each day we eagerly anticipated our early evening... More

I have to say that I was really surprised with that hotel. Amazing location, and like living in a forest, but with facilities of a big city. The location is breathtaking, birds, flower, green and very kind staffs! :) Found a bit hard to see more of the hotel in the website, was happy with the few I could check... More

We recently returned from staying in this delightful if a little quirky Etnia. We were travelling with our three adult children, we all loved Etnia. We arrived after a day of travelling from Rio and wow what a welcome sight the tropical path leading to the swimming pool/restaurant area. We had our own 2 bedroom fabulous house/villa in the beautifully... More

amazing hotel, lovely design and decor... has an ultimately "boutique feel to it." Very cool, breezy, such a rare find. Pictures that we took did it such great justice as well. Very happy with them. The rooms were gorgeous, so unique, everything was so well thought through and ungeneric. Loved it would definitely go back.

Here for three days of relaxation between hectic visits to São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and it hits the spot. A beautiful wooded sloping site leads down from the main street of Trancoso to Etnia. The rooms are in separate buildings scattered round the estate, each simply furnished and comfortable, with spacious verandas. Sitting here on the veranda you're... More

We came to Trancoso, as my partner's choice, I normally when in Brazil , don't travel north. I'm glad he did. We've stayed a few nights at Etnia, our suite was fantastic, the lush green garden and it's flowers was refreshing and it took me back into nature and peace. The swimming pool area was lovely and the adjacent restaurant... More
