Casa Nozinho is named after its former owner, a native fisherman who moved just down the street (moves are never far in Trancoso). Tucked into a quiet corner of UXUA's garden, this peaceful house enjoys abundant sunshine and a true neighbourhood feel. Nozinho was proud of his immaculate gardens, manicuring even his grass, something considered quite exotic among the other fishermen.
Thousands of small details executed with care give UXUA its identity. Furniture, decor, lighting and fixtures are one-of-a-kind, organic creations of designer Wilbert Das, handmade at the hotel by native artisans ranging from fishermen to Pataxó Indians. Antiques and art are sourced locally. International creatives living at UXUA have contributed via our Artist In Casa residency.
