5 BEDROOMS | ILHA DE ITACURUÇÁ, ANGRA DOS REIS
Situated on the island of Itacuruçá, only a two-hour drive south of Rio, Villa Itacuruçá is a fantastic colonial island property on the water's edge. A row of palm trees stands between the front garden and the beach, which emphasizes the property’s colonial grandeur. The small beach in front of the property is shared by two other houses, making it the perfect place to enjoy the calm waters.
The main house and surrounding buildings are arranged over a single story, with load bearing elevations under a pitched tiled roof.
This beachfront island property has five ensuite bedrooms (two of which form a separate bungalow), a large split-level indoor living room, a separate kitchen, and a spacious covered outdoor living and dining area complete with a BBQ, bar, and beautiful ocean views. There is also a separate independent caretaker’s house and a boat house leading down to the water. Finally, up a hill at the rear of the property is a terrace with a small plunge pool. At this level there is an additional house that could provide further accommodation.
The outdoor living area is where you will spend your time, lounging and preparing drinks as you watch boats bob by. There is very little by way of local restaurants, shops and bars, so it is best to kick back at the house in the evening and fire up the BBQ.
With great spaces to entertain and lounging/seating areas spread from inside to outside, it would be almost impossible not to relax and enjoy a little bit of peace.

ILHA DE ITACURUÇÁ, ANGRA DOS REIS
Itacuruçá is a small town on the Green Coast, two hours south of Rio and two hours north of Angra dos Reis, part of the Mangaratiba municipality. This quaint fishing village is surrounded by mountains and is the epitome of tranquility. The 26-mile island of Ilha de Itacuruçá is just as serene, and is ideal for beach trips, nature walks, boat rides, and complete relaxation.
Part of the charm of Itacuruçá and the surrounding area is the minimal tourism, making for a peaceful and uninterrupted experience. During the week you might even be lucky enough to get the beach all to yourself. On the weekends the beaches do fill up more, with beach-goers playing popular games such as futevole and soccer, which provides great entertainment. On neighboring beaches you will also find various kiosks serving ice-cold beer, coconuts and tasty sweet and savory snacks.
Itacuruçá is the perfect authentic Brazilian escape. After experiencing the complete relaxation that Itacuruçá provides, you might never want to leave.
