From Bahia’s glorious white sandy beaches to Sugar Loaf mountain in Rio de Janeiro–the city of the Cariocas–and onto the greenery of Rio Grande do Sul, this crossing of Brazil is a gentle immersion into the diversity and riches of the land that flies the flag of football, original paradise and bossa nova.

Hotel and restaurant on the seafront. At the edge of the Atlantic Forest, Itacarezinho beach stretches out as far as the eye can see. Coconut palms, white sand, warm crystalline blue ocean the year round – and some bungalows nestling in the shade of the trees in this idyllic setting. Built mainly from wood and natural materials, they sit on stilts either at the waterside or perched on the slopes of the hill and enjoy superb views of the beach. Shamash Spa, also built on the slopes with sweeping views over the ocean, offers a range of beauty rituals using natural Bahia products. No less impressive are its culinary delights, with fresh, healthy, fragrant cuisine – a blend of Brazilian and European influences.

Hotel and restaurant in the country. A few kilometers through the Serra, along the “Romantic Route” on your way to the hotel Saint Andrews, is enough to set the scene: this is a place of surprises. The architecture of the building is impressive in itself, inspired by Scotland’s Saint Andrews Castle, and each elegantly furnished room bears the name of the precious stone that lent its color to the décor. Dine by the light of Bohemian crystal chandeliers in a restaurant serving sophisticated international cuisine, after enjoying a cocktail or a glass of wine from the well-stocked cellar. The peaceful landscaped garden is the ideal spot for enjoying a balmy evening and the spectacular views of the Quilombo Valley.
