Casa Turquesa

Rio & the Coast

Rating: Mid-range    

Casa Turquesa overview

Casa Turquesa is a 9-room owner-managed guest house in a prime location by the pier in the attractive colonial town and UNESCO site of Paraty. It is a charming 18th century town house, with white-washed walls and sky-blue painted doors that has been lovingly restored. You'll be welcomed with a drink and a pair of flip flops to help you settle in.
At the heart of the guest house, the inner courtyard offers a peaceful retreat where you can unwind, enjoy a dip in the pool, sunbathe in the garden and chat with other guests over a glass of wine or beer from the bar. Big, squashy sofas and chairs are set around a coffee table and there are tables and chairs where breakfast and afternoon tea are served. Local artwork decorates the walls. Just off the courtyard there's a quiet reading room for browsing through a book or catching  up with emails, news and sporting events on the computer
Each en-suite guest room is named after the colour that inspires its decor. Modern touches like air conditioning, flat screen TV, minibar and phone blend with original architectural features to produce characterful accommodation. From the room you'll have views over the rooftops of the historic centre towards the mountains.  
You can spend time exploring the cobblestoned alleyways of the old town, admiring the many fine colonial buildings, enjoying coastal views, exploring inland or taking a boat cruise in the bay. Casa Turquesa serves breakfast and afternoon tea each day, and there are several restaurants in the neighbourhood where you can have dinner.
