Zé and Zilda were the most recent native parents to raise a large, happy family in this antique fisherman's casa at the heart of the Historic Quadrado. For an authentic dose of Trancoso visitors can’t do better than stay here. Decor includes precious pieces of Trancoso history, from antique painted signs to a religious oratório (a traditional alter) found in an old Bahian home. Its prime location is right next to UXUA’s Quadrado entrance and a lively local restaurant.


There isn't another home on the Quadrado which feels more like old-Trancoso than this one. Cocktails or al fresco dinner parties can be enjoyed at a wooden table on the historic square, or choose more intimate dining inside the kitchen / dining room. Quadrado views are possible from much of the house, especially the airy living room with its deep sofas.

“UXUA Casa Hotel has some serious style credentials”

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.
