We spent 5 days at Pousada Picinguaba the week before last and it was the highlight of a fantastic trip to Brazil. The Pousada is beautifully decorated, oozing comfort and style. It has the feeling of a home (albeit an incredible one). From the moment we arrived in the tiny local fishing village and were helped up to the Pousada with our bags, where we were greeted with a warm welcome from the ever-friendly staff and a papaya juice, we knew we were somewhere special. The food was absolutely delicious and we looked forward to dinners of the freshest fish imagniable and an array of vegetables and salads. We were lucky to have very good weather for 4 of our 5 days. When it's sunny, the pool setting is pretty spectacular and it is a great place to lie out. If you are feeling more energetic, there are lots of possible activities: we did kayaking one day, for example. If you're unlucky and it rains, the house is still a great place to kick back, lounge and read a book. We were truly exceptionally well looked after during our stay. I would also mention that, although we went as a couple, it is a very family friendly place. We were very sad to leave and will definitely return - hopefully sooner rather than later .... Thank you!
