She doesn’t need a last name; she’s the one and only Gisele. By the way, we’re still crushed by the Tom split and cheering these two on for a reconciliation. But you know Gisele is going to keep it interesting, if an ex like Leo is any indication. So with her newfound single status, this is where Gisele has been spreading her wings. This is where Gisele travels around the world, as an entrepreneur, model, and mother.
Praia Brava, Itajai Brazil
Family is everything to Gisele, so it’s no surprise that where Gisele travels around the world includes her home country of Brazil. Gisele and her children rang in the past Christmas holidays with her family. While in the country, they also took a few days at the beach outside of Santa Caterina. You may have heard of Florianópolis, the capital of Santa Caterina, which is renowned for the party scene. But those in the know head to the more exclusive Praia Brava. Gisele rented a duplex penthouse in one of the most exclusive communities in the area. However, you can stay at the Ponta dos Ganchos. One of the most beautiful hotels in all of Brazil, this is a serene getaway for couples with top food and accommodations.
Well, it’s clear that no matter where in the world, the beach is the preferred destination for where Gisele travels. It also looks like Gisele staked out the home she once owned with ex-Tom Brady in Costa Rica. It’s clearly a favorite destination, because they spent part of COVID lockdown at the house. Gisele’s home is located right in the Santa Teresa area on the Pacific Ocean. The property sits high up on a hill with direct access to the beach. There are no hotels of note in this area of Costa Rica (yet) which is the beauty of the area. Santa Teresa is still where it remains an authentic surf town.
We know, since you’re twenties a trip to Miami meant the heart of South Beach. But today, Miami is so much more. The town of Surfside is a waterfront community that spans just one square mile. Surfside is its own enclave of old fashioned restaurants and shops in the heart of its town. Between Bal Harbor and Miami Beach, it’s where Gisele put down roots and calls home while Tom plays for Tampa Bay. For visitors, the Four Seasons Hotel at the Surf Club is where to be, with its full-service spa and Thomas Keller’s Surf Club Restaurant.
When news broke that there was trouble amiss with Tom Brady and Gisele, the supermodel was spotted in her old stomping grounds of New York City. Over many years of walking the runway of Fashion Weeks and attending the Met Gala, New York clearly is a special place for Gisele. Some days she’s shopping at high-end children’s clothing store Ever After with her daughter Vivian. Or others you can find her brunching at Sant Ambroeus Uptown, or Extra Virgin downtown. There’s always something to do for the supermodel in NYC, for both business and pleasure.
You knew it was true love, when Gisele left her beloved New York and set down roots to live full time in Boston. Those roots were in a home that was a 12,000+ square foot five bedroom mansion in Brookline. Of course the home had its own spa, gym, and wine room. During their time in Boston, Gisele could be seen at local favorites like the Barking Crab and Beacon Hill Hotel + Bistro. It’s unlikely you’ll run into her too often in Boston nowadays. However the city is still a prime destination for road trips from the spring through fall seasons.
