South of Rio, the coast of Brazil is fringed with Atlantic Rainforest and soft golden sand. The glitz and glamour of Rio and Sao Paulo migrate to Angra and Buzios in the holiday season. Here sprawling private houses and remote private islands are available for some of the most exclusive private rental holidays in Brazil. Most come with boats of all shapes and sizes to navigate the many remote islands and fishing villages that spray from the mainland. Further south, the charming town of Paraty attracts a more arty, low-key crowd. The Paraty Literary Festival takes place in August, and independent shops, bars and restaurants line the old cobbled streets.
