The most important aspect - the staff - they were all friendly and helpful. The front door is kept locked at all times and you must request access or exit. A bit odd and I'm not sure why this was but someone was always available to open the door and it naturally increases security. We did struggle a bit with...

I loved this place from the beginning. It was such a great change from the dull hotels that we had previously been in. After a long day we arrived at 2am and we're greeted at the door by a Gentleman who didn't speak much English, but still managed to be polite and helpful. The bed was definitely welcoming and we...

This inn is very charming--in the historic center of Paraty so you have to schlep your bags after parking a block or so away. When you arrive at the reception, you are served a glass of water flavored with orange slices--very refreshing. Rooms have names, not numbers. The reception area is filled with paintings (for sale) by the owner, and...

We wanted to be in a pousada close to the Historic Centre of Paraty and with a bit of character. This exceeded our expectations. The decor is delightfully individual, as many of the owner's paintings adorn the walls. Our room was small with a very compact bathroom, but had everything we needed. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The staff were all...

We stayed here four nights after a week in Ilha Grande and absolutely adored our room and the pousada overall. Perfect location next to post card Sta Rita Church, sort of ecclectic, artsy decor combines with old style furnishings, outstanding balcony and hammock in our room, excellent breakfast, tiny but lovely pool, and great staff (although they had not made...

This is a lovely, charming pousada in the old town of Paraty. The staff are friendly and helpful and it's clear they take great pride in their establishment. The residence is owned by an artist whose beautiful and creative work adorns the walls. (I wish I could of bought a piece but alas I had no space in my luggage!)...

We stayed here for one night. It was a pleasant surprise when we arrived to this poussada run by an Argentinian artist. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. We stayed in the Japanese style room with a low bed and a small view of the island. It is a little pricey but worth it. There's a bar and a...

A lovely place to stay. Very quiet and private. Very nice rooms and efficient and professional staff. Pool area is very small but we were the only ones ever there, so it was spot on. Breakfast was nice, the cinnamon pancakes are a must, had them every morning!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in an old restored "sobrado" (two story house) where its architectural style and the preservation of original materials, including stonewalls, wooden furniture and many wooden details stand out. Some of the woods come from species now extinct. The Pousada is located in the historical center next to the Santa Rita Church, with panoramically view of the bay of Paraty and the Bocaina Mountains. It has a secret view of the roofs of the magical town. This is the perfect place for those who come to Paraty looking to unite with nature. Paraty is the most charming historical port town in the country, its geographical location and natural aspects captivate the tourist and inspire painters and photographers. ... more   less
