ABOUT CASA TURQUESA, PARATY - in their own words:

Located by the pier in the historic centre of Paraty, one of the picture postcards of the town, Casa Turquesa was inaugurated in May 2008 and welcomes its guests with a combination of charm, coziness and modernity.

Casa Turquesa has nine comfortable and cozy rooms available, with views of the Paraty scenery from its windows and terraces. The bay, the renowned rooftops, the mountains and the dome of Santa Rita Church – the oldest religious building in our town – combine to make up the scenery surrounding the Inn.

As a result of Renato Tavolaro´s architectural project, Casa Turquesa recreates the façade of an old XVIIIth century town house, which had been destroyed in a fire thirty years ago. Restoration was done with the utmost care and consideration for the original colonial architecture, with a view to offering the very best to its guests.

A blend of historical beauty and contemporary comforts.

Casa Turquesa has an internal patio for guests. A swimming pool with whirlpool, a bar, wine cellar, gazebo and garden are all to be found in this area. Casa Turquesa also has a reading room where a fireplace for colder days and a computer are located. Wireless zone.

Casa Turquesa does not have its own parking lot. Guests are recommended to park at the car park on Matriz Square, 200 metres from our lodgings.

Casa Turquesa´s nine rooms have comfort, sophistication and plenty of charm to offer guests. All of them have en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, LCD televisions, a safe, mini-bar, telephone and computer plugs. The beds are very comfortable, made-up with 300-thread Egyptian cotton sheets, and mosquito netting made by craftsmen from the south of Bahia. Exclusive décor according to the colour of the room. Each room has postcard views: the bay of Paraty, the tiled roofs of the historic centre of the town, the mountains, and the dome of Santa Rita Church.
