Lovely place - enjoyed the brunch and the walk very much and LOVED that we could take our dog. She had a great time too. The owners were fun to chat with and the jams and other foods they sell are yummy. This was our favorite stop on our trip to Piri.

The owners are perfect hosts. The homemade food is delicious. There is a beautiful walk (around 1 hour) through the woods where you can bathe in a stream. Worth going to this fantastic place.

Loved the nature trail, it was perfect for my family (with two young kids). After the short hike, we stayed for brunch....and we were treated like royalty! 8 types of homemade bread, omelets, ham, 12 different types of spread and homemade garnishes, locally made yogurt! and fresh squeezed juices! they kept serving and we told them we're full :)

I was afraid this brunch was overrated - and being a short drive from city center (about 30 min) and priced at R$ 38 I didn't want to be disappointed. But the food is really awesome. You will get an assortment of breads (white, whole wheat and honey), over 20 jams, sliced stewed beef, two juice jars, white (Minas) cheese,... More

We were attending a conference in Pirenopolis and went to Vagafogo to get away for an afternoon. Although the bird life there was not as plentiful as I had hoped, we did get to see plenty of nunbirds, motmots and manakins and heard so many tinamous and trogons. The trail around there is fairly short and an easy walk, even... More

Just outside Pirenopolis down a dusty track. A beautiful and quiet setting. This was my 2nd visit and it did not disappoint. Very attentive and helpful staff set you up for a great time. A secluded walk through the forest is not far with a few stairs to climb up and down. Plenty of places to stop and listen to... More

Oh my gosh! Here's the thing... all the pousadas in Brazil offer delicious breakfasts, but if you are staying in Pirenopolis, you must save one of your days to have brunch at Santuario Vagafogo. You won't need to eat for the rest of the day. The food is delicious. Homemade breads and jams and all different types of chutneys, waffles... More
