Housed in an original 18th century building that was partially destroyed by a fire thirty years ago and painstakingly restored, Casa Turquesa is a welcoming, owner managed guest house situated in the historic centre of Paraty. This quaint property is arranged around a pretty inner courtyard filled with orchids and a small but inviting swimming pool. It is a tastefully decorated property with designer furniture and original sculpture by local artist Pedro Malvão.
Located right in the heart of the historic centre of Paraty, Casa Turquesa is a charming little pousada with friendly and personal service
There are only nine rooms, each of which have been individually designed around the theme of a different colour. All rooms are finished to a high standard with locally made furniture, original pieces of art and luxurious 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets by Trussardi. Home style cooking is prepared in the restaurant with a menu of local favourites such as stuffed crab shells and ceviche. Massages are offered under the gazebo and there is an independent boutique selling crafts, art and hand made products by local artisans.
