When American design couple Robert and Cortney Novogratz fell in love with Brazil, they decided to buy a property in Transcoso. The beautiful wooden house is very different from their concrete home in Manhattan. Here their seven (!) children can walk barefoot, swim in warm water and run free. Although they work hard, having fun is essential for this inspiring family.
