I usually stay at the Motel 8 or the Holiday Inn, but on my dream vacation, I'd stay at a gorgeous contemporary villa like this one, situated in a mountain valley outside of Araras, Brazil.
The house, designed by Brazilian firm Ouriço Architecture, embraces the dramatic landscape with floor to ceiling windows and folding doors that open to the outside. And of course, there's that dramatic fireplace, and a party-perfect pool. Perfect house, perfect view. A girl can dream.
See more of the house on Ouriço's website.
