We were thrilled to be invited to stay at Tie Sangue by the charming Brazilian owners and to experience first hand the wonderfully welcoming hospitality of the Brazilean people. Arriving by helicopter was magical. From the air you realise how stunning the coastline from Rio to Paraty is, with chains of islands and translucent, emerald green water. Tie Sangue is tucked in above its own private cove and beach overlooking the Bay of Paraty.
The Estate covers 40,000 sq.m. and incorporates three independent houses that you can rent individually or together. Each house sleeps 14. This is a wonderful place to experience South America at its best.
A rich diversity of wildlife and plantation will make your stay even more special. One of the most well-known birds is the 'Tie Sangué' which is the symbol of the Estate. The owners are committed to careful conservation of the local environment and the surrounding trees have been preserved, allowing birds and animals to remain in their natural habitat. The interior design and building materials were also used with the same eco-friendly care. The building structure for each house is of eucalyptus, the ceilings are covered with bamboo and the furniture has been specially designed and manufactured with raw materials and recycled wood.
As you walk down one of the many paths that wind between the houses you get glimpses of the warm Atlantic Ocean below. Starting at the top of the Estate is The Tree House, with a long, green swimming pool running the length of the house, built over two floors with a separate one bedroom ‘honeymoon’ cottage. Huge decks with swing seats give a panoramic view over the top of the trees to the sea and islands beyond.
The Garden House has an intimate feel with the large living room and terrace being the hub of house and giving elevated views through the trees to the sea - a separate annex with two bedrooms is ideal for a couple with young children.
The most spread-out of the houses is the Beach House. Above the main house are two further annexes, one being ideal as a ‘dormitory’ for lots of teenagers. This house is also closest to the Games Room where there are various games, snooker table and a little kitchen for snacks - an ideal chill-out zone and meeting place for everyone staying on the Estate.
The historic town of Paraty is a twenty minute drive and offers entertainment for all ages and tastes. Guests will be delighted by the poetic atmosphere of this historic hub, with its eccentric pavements of irregular stones, accompanied by the provincial eighteenth and nineteenth century Brazilian architecture and the colourful water front with day boats for charter.
A plethora of enchanted islands surround Paraty's Atlantic forestry and form the perfect backdrop for the region's untouched beaches and secluded bays which complement the area's vibrant ecosystem. All of this makes chartering a boat for picnics and island-hopping in order to try out the many beach restaurants an opportunity not to be missed. A boat can be moored off the Estate’s own jetty.
Those who enjoy more adventurous activities can go surfing, diving, mountain trekking, rafting and much more.
Visiting an eighteenth century distillery of cachaça is another attraction not be missed. Paraty was Brazil's most important producer of 'aguardente', which was a popular distilled beverage in the period.
Despite its historic surroundings, Paraty boasts a dichotomy of local cultural celebrations and nationally acclaimed literature and arts festivals which are spread throughout the course of the year.
