Casa Turquesa came to life when I finally chose to make my home in Paraty after years of going back and forth between France and Brazil. Welcoming guests has always been one of my passions, which is why I though to myself “Why not create a place where feeling at home is a priority”

Friends told me that the city lacked a cool guesthouse, a place that combined comfort, elegance and a certain artistry. And so I went looking for the perfect place. The task was arduous, but I ultimately found just what I looking for in historic downtown – and close to where I had always lived. It really was a true extension of my house, and of my art and joy of properly welcoming guests!


Casa Turquesa offers nine spacious suites divided into two categories: master and luxury. Each room type is unique and presents exclusive decor inspired by the name of the room. Furniture designed by Brazilian artists and works of art by both local painters and by the famed French artist Jacques Rey and English artist Margaret Mee enliven every room. All of the rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fan, LCD TV, music docking station, digital safe, telephone, mini-fridge, wi-fi, and king- or queen-size beds with Trussardi sheets made of 600-count Egyptian cotton, and delicate mosquito netting made by artisans in southern Bahia.

The windows beautifully frame views of the inner courtyard, Paraty Bay, the tiled rooftops and mountains, or the dome of the Santa Rita Church.
