He's a swiss who settled in Brazil some 15 years ago. So he knows English, Portuguese, German and maybe more languages and that really helps. When you get off the bus from Sao Luis, Michael is there with his speed boat to pick you up at the river front. And then he zips you through the waters to his pousada.... More

This is a simply marvelous place on the "other side" of the Rio Preguiça in Barrerinhas (MA). Situated between the "main road" (a loose sand piste between the two ferries and leading to the Lençóis Maranhenes) and the river is a hadful of small houses together with the main building. Rooms are large, very large bathroom, effective A/C, everything spotlessly... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautyfull Pousada. The owners are very helpfull and can arrange trips to the various sites to see. The rooms were extremely clean and well maintained. We saw several other pousadas in town which are in a noisy unpleasant place. Here its totally the contrary, the surrounding is very quiet and a small paradise.... More

We loved it here! Barreirinhas isn't very nice overall, but this is a little piece of beauty, peace, and comfort in the middle of it all. You have to take a boat to get over to the center of town (which is an adventure in itself - my kids loved going on the speedboat with Micael (and he took us... More

We were very positively surprised by this accommodation, existing of a few rooms in villa style in a nice garden. The rooms were very clean, nicely decorated, the owner has really an eye for detail. We found the rooms to be nicer than presented on the hotel’s website. We had lunches and diner in the hotel, all very good, ranging... More

When you’re somewhere like Lencois going on daily adventures, it’s nice to have a calm place to come back to. Sossego do Cantinho lives up to its name in every respect. Starting with the arrival on the rickety dock. We made full use of the private beach almost as soon as we dropped our bags in the room. And also... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 4 nights in October. It was our best experience during our Brazil vacation. Nice, spacey chalets in a beautiful garden. The river runs by and allows for swimming and kayaking. The kayaks are for free. The best part is Michael and Josiane take care of their guests. She and her staff cook delicious... More

We spent wonderful and relaxing holidays in the Pousada Sossego do Cantinho. The place is just amazing at the bank of the river preguica. The river looks like it was in the jungle. Especially did we like to use the Kayaks - for free. The pousada is not too far from the town center of barreirinhas (15 min walk +... More
