Etnia Pousada & Boutique
Ranked #4 of 14 Hotels in Trancoso
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 November 2015

We spent 5 nights in Villas de Trancoso. The place is perfect, villas are large and luxurious, staff is wonderful - they even arranged activities for us - the beach and setting is breathtaking, and the food is delicious. The two bedroom villas are great for families of 4 or 5. Our kids loved it, especially the surf and free lend of boogie boards! Also, horse-riding on the beach was a great experience.The only (small) thing to improve is coffee and tea making + fresh water (a few bottles) in the rooms. We will definitely be back. SEE YOU VILLAS o:)

Our travel agency recommended this hotel and it was a perfect choice. The hotel is an oasis in charming Trancoso with a very personal touch. The rooms as well as the restaurant and salon are beatifully decorated with personally selected furniture. The food is very good and you should try Etnia's own sparkling wine which is superb. The best feature, however, is the staff who are incredibly friendly going out of their way to make your stay unforgettable. We strongly recommend this small jewell in Trancoso.

The warm welcome of Andrea and the team made us feel at home straight away. The chalet was very spacious, beautifully and tastefully decorated. The service was discreet and very efficient, attentive to all our needs.
We had great food by the pool in the evenings, breakfasts were excellent and varied everyday. Each day we eagerly anticipated our early evening cocktails by the pool. We needed nothing more to relax and indulge, it was a perfect stay. We could not have found a better place to stay.

I have to say that I was really surprised with that hotel. Amazing location, and like living in a forest, but with facilities of a big city.
The location is breathtaking, birds, flower, green and very kind staffs! :)
Found a bit hard to see more of the hotel in the website, was happy with the few I could check online, but it was much better from what I expected.

Definitely I will be back! :)

We recently returned from staying in this delightful if a little quirky Etnia. We were travelling with our three adult children, we all loved Etnia. We arrived after a day of travelling from Rio and wow what a welcome sight the tropical path leading to the swimming pool/restaurant area. We had our own 2 bedroom fabulous house/villa in the beautifully manicured grounds ... all of the rooms tastefully and uniquely decorated and immaculate. Breakfast delicious and always the fabulous Laura there in the morning to help and guide with ideas and destinations that could be enjoyed nearby. The staff were charming and super helpful including the staff at the Etna beach club. Around the corner from the Quadrado great shops, restaurants and a 10 minute walk to the beach.
I would definitely recommend this unique delightful Pousada.
