First the bad news: no TV! I wanted to see some news about the copa so that was a disappointment. However, on our third day we were offered a small tv for our room with one channel. Problem solved! And we did not spend much time in the pousada anyway, since the surroundings are beautiful. Lencois is a small town... More

The location is good and within uphill walking distance from the center of the village Lençois. Well kept and peaceful botanical garden of about 5 hectars. The 13 bungalows are homely with spacious bathroom and cosy veranda with hamac (the fact that they have no TV is a big plus in our opinion). The furniture and decor artistically executed by... More

We arrived in Lençois after only 2 nights in Brazil, our body clocks were still on South African time zone and on arrival we were welcomed warmly. After arriving and unpacking, we walked around the garden appreciating th flowers and trees, some trees even had labels with Latin names on, which I find very interesting. That night, all we needed... More

Stayed in August with my husband and small daughter. Great location - close to town but fairly far at the same time, walking distance to good restaurants. Chris, the owner gets off his way to accommodate all your needs, he has a great vibe, contagious. Great bed, comfortable rooms and ambiance. But the greatest of all is the breakfast. Personal...

I loved this Pousada. It has everything you need in Chapada. It has a really pleasant garden, rooms are good enough, breakfast is really good (everything is made there). The owner, Chris, is very helpful and nice.

Ever since we saw the pousada's website, my partner and I were sure we would have Christmas in August in Chapada Diamantina. Then I wrote a reservation request on the friendly interface of the same website and the personal and customized reply came in less than thirty minutes. We settled everything out by email about two weeks before our arrival:... More

Pousada Vila Serrano is a really unique place. The design of the buildings to create a very the feel of a little village was done in a way that is incredibly stylish- so much attention to detail in the decoration of the buildings and the well maintained gardens. The rooms were comfortable and spacious with a nice porch. The shared... More

Really love the place: very well thought- through layout, stylish but not overbearing design, friendly service. Very well planned and cosy communal areas, with many nice places to hide away with a book, plus an open area where guests can make themselves some tea, wash/cut fruits etc. Overall, feels very homey while not loosing the air of an exclusive hotel....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vila Serrano was designed to blend harmoniously into the surrounding environment. This is why everything, from the construction up to the decoration of the rooms, is designed through the use of Feng-Shui, an ancient Chinese art of living in harmony with health, wealth and happiness.Every one of the 13 rooms was decorated individually with the help of plastic artists in order to provide our guest with a high level of comfort and well-being. All of them are equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fan, stocked refrigerator, private bathroom and veranda with a hammock.Additionally there is a library area with books in various languages, a TV room and a large sofa by the fireplace.You can enjoy a game of chess or ping pong in the shade of our garden’s trees, and have a massage or simply relax in the whirlpool of our open air mini spa. There is also a yoga pavillon with regular classes. We offer free internet access in our library area and our wireless network is accessible from all rooms.The pousada has it´s own parking lot. ... more   less
