“Brilliant location with amazing scenery”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We found this place just looking in a local guide book. We decided to stay here for a few days as it looked really different and interesting. The owners were brilliant and very welcoming, they escorted us to our cabin which was very basic and rustic inside, we stayed in the cheaper option but it was clean and well kept. They had a brilliant dog Niomi that is extremely intelligent and seemed to be able to predict where we wanted to go on one of the many walking routes around the hills.The main walk up the mountain is a good trek but the views are breathtaking .I enjoyed exploring the local area whilst my wife enjoyed reading her book next to the pool, which is situated in a little oasis of banana and lemon trees. One evening I took a sauna which is situated next to a river for taking a dip afterwards it was amazing. We loved the food especially it was one of the nicest places I have eaten in Brazil, if you enjoy french cuisine its a must. Please try one of their caipirinha's made with fresh fruit its the best.

Room Tip: Cheaper option looked a little sparse.

We have stopped here when traveling around Brazil in November and it was such a pleasant surprised. Thanks to Lonely Planet and our curious nature, we ventured off the beaten path and found this place. Its a true paradise, you will not want more. The owner is french, he cooks himself in the restaurant (which actually looks more like his living room) and if you are a guest will ask you for what you would like for dinner. The bungalo was charmingly decorated. One can jump from sauna into the natural swimming hole under the waterfall. Bamboo(the dog) will take you on a hike. Exotic flowers will surround you everywhere. I just don't now what else i could wish for

We arrived at 2 a.m. It was dark and we couldn't see a thing. The nightguard led us to the room (no. 4) and how pleasant was our surprise. A lovely suite tastefully decorated with a huge bathtub. But in the morning when we woke up - wow!! It is amazingly situated on a river with many waterfalls. The view is hypnotic. We could watch it for hours. It is a pretty little resort (a bit remote from Paraty - you need a car) with a very nice pool and walks in the rain forest. We stayed 2 nights and took dinner once. It was delicious though small portions and much too expensive - so I can't say it is good value for money. But Brazil in general became much more expensive in the last few years. The breakfast was perfect. All in all it was one of the nicest places we took in our trip from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro.

Where to start? The rooms are gorgeous, the food amazing, and the ambiance is spectacular. I was lucky enough to have friends recommend this place to me. I promise you that your trip to Le Gite will be an experience you will not soon forget.

We stayed 2 nights here recently. I wanted to experience the rainforest, but boy did it rain....
The owners were away & the acclaimed restaurant was shut. We knew this & had arrangements to eat next door at Pousada Las Bromelias.
The room was lovely.Absolutely recommend you book Loft 2. Best position overlooking the falls.
The setting is lovely & the nightly trip down to the sauna for a dip in the falls & a sauna was great.
We dont speak Portuguese & as with most of Brazil we struggled to find many English speakers. I speak Spanish & personally find the written word not that different, but we had a few problems in the gite, probably not helped by the owner being away. There was no hot water & we had a 18 hour power cut. the power cut was fine, we had candles & I lit the fire (a challenge when everything is damp!) The lack of hot water, though solved by access to one of the basic rooms showers was frustrating as all that was required was a replacement gas cannister. I tried to explain this in Portuguese & via pictures etc, but all they did was shrug. As we were the only visitors, one could have been swapped from another room...
We had breakfast in the restaurant which was the usual continental style. The food at the neighbours was great, so im sure Le Gite is fabby, but the restaurant did look very run down, which probably explains the current closure.
I would go back for the room & setting. The loft is v nice, otherwise its a basic back to nature place. Bromelias looks to be a higher star rating, bit more polished, with a nice pool, but nothing beats Loft 2s setting & you can always wander next door.

Room Tip: Loft 2 is the best

My husband and I were in Paraty for four days, staying in a terrible and overpriced guesthouse, so we were looking for somewhere to get away to. We spent 2 nights at this beautiful jungle retreat and it was unexpected bliss. The owners were really friendly and accommodating. Cottages set under the canopy of trees, lots of flowers, open fire, colourful decor and lots of hiking and waterfalls to enjoy. There is also a sauna by the river! The food was delicious. Breakfast will keep you going most of the day. Dinner was pricey but worth every penny to taste such gourmet food! Highly recommended.

It was a tremendous surprise to visit and enjoy the Le Gite! A friend told me about this place and we're in Paraty, so we decided to visit it. No doubt, we decided to stay 2 more days in this awesome, quite and passionate hotel. Nature lovers will be amazed with their waterfall.
We rent the LOFT2 and it was amazing, really beautiful room.

The food is an issue apart.
We loved the Fish with Palmito sauce. Their restaurant wins a national prize every year!

Totally recommended!
