The vacation house is composed by a series of six bedrooms conceived around a common area. Each bedroom feels isolated, providing the right amount of privacy to its guests. Five of the suites feature white stucco walls, while the sixth offers warm tones of reclaimed wood.

The house is a continuous nod to the local culture and it shows through each and every space as you progress into the building. Starting from the outside, a kitchen and a swimming pool are positioned in a way you can admire the beautiful landscape of the jungle, along with the town of Trancoso, a small, rural town.

By entering the building, you can find the living room, immediately connected to the swimming pool zone, in which you can relax next to a fireplace. The room is all about comfort, as rustic elements combine with singular pieces such as the 1960s linen sofa.

The house directly take is the culture of the place by displaying unique furniture, coming from the manufacturers of the area. For instance, you can find a beautiful wood sink in one of the bathroom which is made by a local artist, or, in the dining room, you can admire the majestic dining table and chairs made of indigenous woods.
