My wife and I stay at the Pousada da Alcobaça several times a year. It is located in Corrêas which is part of the municipality of Itaipava and very close to Petrópolis.
However, be careful because after one stay you WILL return!
The staff is very attentive to your every need and is very cordial and polite.
The food is extremely well-prepared and served and is cooked on a wood-burning stove.
Dona Laura is the nicest person you could ever want to make your friend. Her and her husband, Mario are perfectly fluent in English as well as all of the children.
Do not be surprised if you see more comments in the guest book written in English than in Portuguese because this pousada is quite popular among foreigners.
Laura's feijoadas on Saturdays are spectacular but her thrice yearly cozido is unbelievable however you have to be on their secret email mailing list to get "invited" to it!
Enjoy your stay.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Just one hour drive from Rio and only 15 minutes from Petropolis historical center, the inn Pousada da Alcobaca is one of the most charming places on the mountains around Rio. It is a 1914 mansion surrounded by gardens with roses, bromeliads, orchids, wild raspberries and aromatic herbs. The owners, whose family built the house at the beginning of the last century, maintain the property watching every detail personally. A tradition of the Pousada is the flexible time schedule: guests can sleep late and may take breakfast anytime. The restaurant, open to the public and awarded by the 4 Rodas Brasil 2014 Guide with a star, offers an authentic cuisine du terroir, supplied by a large vegetable garden and orchard in the property. Pousada Alcobaca has been praised by Brazilian and international press and is recommended by travel guides like "Quatro Rodas" in Brazil, and "Lonely Planet" and "Fodor's".
