This little spot was like an oasis in our vacation: Paraty itself is magical and this b & b was beautiful. We liked how white our room was and the overall aesthetic of the place. Breakfast was delicious and John let us know about places in the area to eat and spend our time. We felt well taken care of.... More

Stayed 2 nights in this gem of a pousada. Just 4 quiet bungalows surrounding a lovely pool in an incredibly beautiful garden. Bright rooms with all amenities, phantastic breakfast. And the best- Jon, the british owner. Cordial, helpful, simply the born host!!! Can´t imagine there is a better place to stay in Paraty. As there are only 4 rooms and... More

We stayed here for our last 2 nights of a wonderful Brazil holiday- and what a place to end on! Absolutely fabulous- beautifully furnished bungalow, wonderful swimming pool, heavenly bed, great breakfast and such a helpful and charming host! We really are sorry we didn't spend a few more nights here.

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

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.
