So today is the day when everyone is about to lose their sh*t because the World Cup is starting. Personally, I’m a little less enthusiastic about football, but never one to miss out on a good vibe. Football fever is rising among us, but of course, the tournament’s host nation is about to spread some irresistible Brazilian fever far and wide. I may have already caught the Brazil bug and went in search of my dream cabanas from another life. Located in a small fishing village on Brazil’s idyllic southern Bahian coast, let’s kick off with a hat-trick (see what I did there?!) of beautiful Brazilian cabanas available for rent during the World Cup. One can dream … or just blog.
Blue Atelier, a chic ‘fisherman’ cabana for two
Modeled on traditional fisherman’s huts of the area, Blue Atelier is decorated with an eye for roughed up sophistication. A fully equipped kitchen, outdoor garden, and private pool might make it difficult to drag yourself down to the nearby beach. 1-bedroom with King bed, starting from $420 per night.

Ten unique casas, four of which are restored fishermen homes facing the 16th century town green called the Quadrado, while six others are hidden in a lush private garden. The casas were created by designer Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans using traditional building methods, reclaimed materials, and Brazilian antiques and art.

And for a slightly more realistic budget

Pretty swanky for a hostel, hey?! More information & booking at WE.
To all you football (or soccer) fans, enjoy the World Cup kick-off, and for non-football fans, I’ll do my best to keep you distracted this month!
