The small town of Trancoso on the east coast of Brazil is one of the country’s hidden gems. A Trancoso holiday is ideal for those who wish to have a summer holiday without being smothered by a mass of tourists or who wish to get a taste of what traditional Brazilian life is like. A Trancoso holiday rental villa not only acts as the ideal base for lazing in the sun or resting after a hard days activity, it also offers all of the first-class comforts that you would expect in a top hotel.
A Trancoso holiday is the perfect opportunity to be as indulgent or as laid-back as you want to be when it comes to activity. You can simply choose to relax and unwind in your fantastic Trancoso holiday rental villa, watching the world go past your window. Or you can get your teeth stuck into some adrenaline-pumping activities such as golf, walking, swimming, surfing, diving, fishing, windsurfing, paragliding, cycling, dune buggying and horse riding. One of the most interesting features of a Trancoso holiday is the Quadrado, the historic town square. It is oblong in shape and is surrounded by beautifully coloured, traditional houses. There is a preservation order protecting the Quadrado from traffic and so there is not a car or bike to be seen in the vicinity making it the perfect place to witness traditional Trancoso life.
If you can bear to leave your wonderful Trancoso holiday rental villa for the day then it is worth taking the 30 minute journey north to the village of Arraial d’Ajuda. The village used to be popular with the generation of the 1960’s and still reflects that party-going atmosphere with plenty of music and dance. Indeed, visitors can see the house in Arraial d’Ajuda where the music genre Lambada was born. Other sights worth seeing in the village are the Church of Nossa Senhora which was built in the 16th century by Jesuit priests.
If you are considering booking a fantastic Trancoso holiday rental villa then you will be able to enjoy a wonderful Tropical climate, which means that the temperature is pretty constant throughout the year.

The annual rainfall amount for the town is 33 inches with the wettest month of the year generally being November.
