You only need a few minutes in Villa 11 before you realise why the owners of this house fell in love with Paraty back in the 1960s.
The villa has three suites and is located 10 minutes by boat from Paraty’s historic centre. It is surrounded by lush Atlantic rainforest and a magical garden, with an abundance of native trees and tropical flowers. There are two hiking trails within the property which take in the ruins of an imperial fort with its original canons and a 360 degree view of the bay of Paraty.
The villa’s landlord owns the well known Pousada do Sandi in Paraty’s historical centre. The internal décor is tasteful and stylish with floor to ceiling windows which show off the spectacular tropical rainforest and emerald green sea. The staff are well trained and include a cook, cleaner, housekeeper and sailor.
There is a paddle board, a wakeboard and kayak available for guest use. Should you wish to visit some of the many tropical islands in the area or gather mussels at the mussel farm in Pouso da Cajaiba, there are two speedboats available to hire.
