Really feel at one with nature at this beautiful pousada in Trancoso. Located deep in a shady forest, it is a calm oasis of tranquility, yet close to the bustling town centre.

Experience full hotel services and hospitality, whilst also having your own autonomy in one of the pousada's 7 villas, whose names come from Yoruba (a language of African origin), and refer to a sacred place to relax. Each villa is different, but all decorated with ethnic decor and the best amenities, and so you can find the perfect option for families, groups of friends, or couples. The fabrics, furniture, and art used to decorate come straight from local artists' studios or from the owner's trips around Europe. The fully equipped kitchens and private terraces will allow you to make your own food and relax in privacy. Or opt to visit one of the local restaurants, it's your choice. 

Rest easily knowing that you are sleeping within a totally natural environment. The villas were built whilst preserving and enhancing the natural environment. The fences are made from Eucalyptus, the floors are burnt clear cement, and the window arches and doors are made from reused wood brought from former cocoa farms. Even the artisan jams served at breakfast have been made from cocoa, jackfruit, and coconut grown in the pousada's garden. Etnia Casa Hotel also supports the local charity Awakening Trancoso Association, among others, which defends sustainable tourism and provides free environmental education. 

The surrounding area of Trancoso is also a natural paradise, with stunning beaches and nature reserves. The pousada can organise plenty of activities, which will allow you to make the most of the surroundings. For example, horse riding, kayaking, diving, and many more. If you're looking to learn something of Brazilian culture then you can attend some of the pousada's dance classes (choose from lombarda, zouk lombarda, or capoeira). If you want something a little more relaxed, then opt for a pilates or yoga class, followed by a therapeutic massage. Just don't forget to embrace the Bahian lifestyle and immerse yourself in relaxation.
