Make a holiday rental home or property in Brazil your home away from home

Brazil is a land of passion, which enchants almost everyone who takes the time to travel to Brazil. Whatever the size, age or passion of the group travelling, there is a holiday rental in Brazil to suit you; from the dazzling beaches to the vibrant, colourful cities, renting a house in Brazil for a holiday will certainly live up to your expectations. The giant South American country is awash with music and dancing, throughout regions of extraordinary beaches, huge jungles and pulsating cities.

Things to do on holiday in Brazil

Brazil’s Carnival is the most famous in the world. Starting 40 days before Lent and lasting for four days, Carnival is celebrated in every town throughout the country, and not just in Rio de Janeiro. Carnival reflects local cultures and traditions, meaning that the celebrations are different in every town, so your experiences of the event from one holiday villa will be totally different from another holiday villa in Brazil.

During the other 361 days of the year, there is still plenty to do. There is always plenty going on in the large cities like Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Brazilia and Sao Paulo, from shopping to arts performances. Throughout the country, there are remarkable sights to see like Iguaçu Falls, and it has become a real Mecca for serious walking holidays. Trekking is a hugely popular activity in many regions of this country of magnificent natural beauty, and there are some spectacular guided tours to be done, especially in the Amazonia National Park and the Pantanal, one of the world’s finest nature reserves. There are also a great number of horse back trails and kayaking adventures into the jungle, which create an absolutely unforgettable experience, no matter how much travelling you have done.

Brazil is also a hotspot for beaches. There are many beautiful beaches all round the enormous coastline, and if you are lucky enough to be able to rent a beach house in Brazil, the inter-tropical climate and glorious white sands mean you must take it! There are a huge number of opportunities to go scuba diving, surfing, fishing and kayaking around the warm waters of the coast too, as the waters off the coast of Brazil are rich with marine life.

Inland, golf has taken off as a sport in Brazil. There are many 18 hole courses throughout the country, many of which have been designed by ex-professionals. Golf properties in Brazil have become hugely popular with tourists, as taking a golfing break to Brazil means that you can investigate and explore so much of what Brazil has to offer.

Places to holiday in Brazil

The North East of Brazil is the most traditional region, offering tourists a great insight into Brazilian culture and life styles. There are endless beaches around the area, and the cities of Olinda, Recife and Natal are defiantly worth visiting if you have the chance from a self catering property in Brazil’s North East corner.

South East Brazil is the most famous region of Brazil. Home to the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, it is the richest region of the country, and the standard of facilities reflects this. South East Brazil is especially known in bird watching circles, as there are a spectacular number of bird species which call this corner of Brazil home.

Weather in Brazil

There are five climatic regions in Brazil, so predicting the general conditions that will be waiting for you as you arrive at the door of your Brazil property is impossible. In general, temperatures range from 27°C to 32°C in summer (December until February), and average temperatures hover around 16°C in winter (June, July and August).

Travel to Brazil

Flights to Brazil are easy to find with British Airways, who provide direct flights to Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. There are many airports across Brazil, and you can get ‘short hop’ flights which will bring you very close to any of the holiday houses in Brazil.

Louise is a really nice person who was always checking if we needed anything else. My family and I had a wonderful stay over there. We would certainly go back. Missed it all already. Alba
