Paraty, Costa Verde
Located by the pier in the historic centre of Paraty, Casa Turquesa opened in May 2008 and welcomes its guests with a combination of charm, coziness and modern comforts.
Casa Turquesa boasts nine rooms designed with great attention to detail, and tranquillity and harmony in mind, with views of the Paraty scenery from its windows and terraces. The bay, the renowned rooftops, the mountains and the dome of Santa Rita Church – the oldest religious building in our town – combine to make up the scenery surrounding the Inn.
As a result of Renato Tavolaro´s architectural project, Casa Turquesa recreates the façade of an old XVIIIth century town house, which was destroyed in a fire thirty years ago. Restoration was done with the utmost care and consideration for the original colonial architecture, with a view to offering the very best to its guests.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Costa Verde into a greater Brazil & Latin America holiday. Take a look at Discovering Latin America as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
