The fantastic staff, rooms, setting, location, breakfast, etc., etc., exceeded our expectations! Andrea is a kind and generous soul who went out of his way to make sure my wife and I had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We hope to return and highly recommend a visit!

Excellent central location, in a green area situated at just 5 minutes by walking from the famous Quadrado of Trancoso (downtown). Available double rooms with bathroom, chalets and private villas for family or groups of friends up to 6 people. Friendly staff and good decoration. Rich breakfast with tropical fruits and typical local specialities.

The big chains are not there, prices can be high - you may choose among the many “pousadas”, usually family-owned, simple hotels. You may depend on primitive web sites to choose it. Here you have a safe option: Big Bamboo. Owned by a couple of... More

In november we decided to travel back to Brasil and we spent a wonderful time in this romantic and luxury pousada, located in a very cosy and charming place. We enjoyed the contact with the intact nature of the property, having great time around the pool area surrounded by a lush vegetation and visited by some funny and familiar monkeys.... More

From the day we checked in we had an amazing experience there. Everybody was very polite and nice to answer all of our requests. The room we had was very big and clean, even we had a TV to watch a few cable channels by night. The breakfast was also great, an the location is fabulous. Thanks to everyone there,... More
