Wilbert Das, the former creative director of Diesel, made a second name for himself with UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa (www.uxua.com; from £475), a collection of exquisitely appointed houses in the historic centre of Trancoso, Brazil. The latest addition is Casa Dona Frozina,a new Das-designed house in the quadrado, or town square, with a jewel-green private garden. It’s an eclectic mix of weathered wooden pillars, sofas covered in vintage African indigo linen and hammocks on the patio. You won’t find it listed on the hotel’s website (it’s a Das favourite that he tends to reserve for friends), but if you don’t ask, you don’t get – and this is a gem worth chasing.
