Have you ever dreamed of staying in a cottage located in a tropical location? What about Brazil? Yes, a cottage by the beach in Brazil sounds pretty good. Many people think “Rio de Janeiro” when someone says “Brazil” and even though Rio is a gorgeous city to visit, the real great places to vacation in Brazil are located in remote areas. One such place is Arraial d’Ajuda, Bahia, Brazil. That’s a place I’d really recommend anyone to go. I personally haven’t gone there yet, but my sister had her honeymoon there and swears by it. Arraial d’Ajuda is a very small town with unspoiled beaches, very friendly people and super fresh food. The weather is also amazing! Very warm, but the ocean breeze and the warm waters are always there to cool you down.
When I first saw this place in Brazil I thought about sharing it right away. I think it has so many great qualities you can find in a Brazilian home. It has exotic woods, color, openness. The views of the forest are just beautiful. It’s almost as if you’re in a tree house.
Take a look and let me know if you’d like to take some days off in this place!
This is how a tropical cottage should feel in Brazil.
The house is very close to the beach.
Everything is really colorful in this cottage.
A good look at the place.
Local art can be found in many rooms of this cottage.
Simple and sleek.
These light fixtures are hand painted. Aren’t they beautiful?
Everything has a very relaxed feel in this cottage.
I love this window.
I love seeing the deep green of these leaves.
All these colors make me feel happy.
The staircase is made of local wood.
Talking about wood, take a good look at this magnificent carved wooden chair. It’s a piece of art.
Keep Calm And Carry On
Open to the outdoors.
Imagine yourself in this bed, feeling the breeze coming in…
This is the view from the bed.
Sure, this is not for everyone or everywhere, but it brings happiness to a Brazilian cottage.
Tiles inside the shower.
Just outside the master bedroom.
Hammocks are huge in Brazil. I love them!
All of Us
I could enjoy this place!
A fun place for a Brazilian drink: Caipirinha.
Imagine yourself relaxing here, under the sun and with this view.
Outdoor shower? Yes, please!
Aren’t these chairs very unique?
And this is the reason you go to Brazil.
And yes, the food is pretty amazing too!
The tiny town feels safe and welcoming.
A little house.
Some stores around the town. Local shopping, anyone?
Wouldn’t it be fun to bring home some of these vibrant colors?
While there, why not learn some “lambada” moves? Lambada is a fun and fast dance. I have to say this; lambada is great to make you burn some calories, be in shape and feel happy!
Do you see the light green plants? They’re orchids. People put their orchids in their trees and they grow beautifully there. My grandmother has some orchids on the tree in front of her house in Brazil.
The cottage is great, the shopping is fun, but we all want go to the beach!
Miles and miles of warm sand.
This is the kind of beach that would make me take a plane to go to! This one is worthy!
You can call it heaven, paradise or simply, Brazil.
You’d find me in one of these daybeds.
They say “paz” which means “peace”.
I love hearing the waves breaking on the shore.
I’m wishing I was in this place right now. I woke up to a very cold and windy morning today. Even though I’m enjoying Fall, I must say I’m already missing the sun! It gets cold here very quickly. Seeing all this sunshine and the beach is just what I needed today.
How’s your day going so far? Many plans for today? If you’re going to have a busy day, try to keep a positive attitude. I say that for myself, too. It seems that I’m running around too much lately and forgetting to breathe. Sometimes we need to focus on that, on just slowing down. We have to remind ourselves of how precious life is and try to find gratefulness in every day.
Please, make sure to come back tomorrow. I’ve prepared a post which I can’t wait to share with you.
Have a blessed day!
