We stayed 2 nights at the Vivenda Paraty and we're amazed at the attention to detail and beautiful setting. Breakfast is served on the terrace of your bungalow as if by magic each morning! The bungalows are gorgeous set in beautiful gardens and pool - John the owner is the perfect host!

Vivenda Paraty was a dream! The place itself is a beautifully decorated B&B, down a quiet, safe street in Paraty but easy walking distance from town. The B&B is an absolute dream; the rooms are thoughtfully and gracefully finished. The breakfast spread is AMAZING! Through our time in Brazil we quickly realized how serious breakfast is, and the breakfast at... More

We ended two weeks in Rio State here in Vivenda Paraty for three nights. The bungalows were already booked up so we took the suite attached to the main house - it's a beautiful room, just like the whole place! (We have painted everything in our garden white since returning home to try to replicate the beautiful white feeling you... More

Stayed in one of the bungalows for 3 nights. The décor is all-white, immaculate and very chic, with lots of attentive touches. e.g. waffle-white bathrobes, English glossy magazines, an impressive collection of Classic DVDs. A veritable home from home. B’fast served on the terrace overlooking the beautiful pool and the lush and verdant gardens. John was a very friendly and... More

We had such an amazing time in the beautifully decorated and cozy Vivenda Pousada. It was by far the highlight of our tour in the south region of Rio de Janeiro. It definitely felt like our home away from home. Greeted by the sweet host, we discovered our spacious and spotless bungalow. Surrounded by white and sand design, one feels... More
