We stayed in Brazil for 10 days and decided to get a break from the city and see Ilha Grande. We booked to stay at the guest house as it was only 30 minutes from the centre of Angra and it looked really quaint and cute in the photos. If I'm honest we weren't expecting much as we hadn't seen the photos of the views and thought it would just be a small b&b. We were all blown away by the location, the views, the house, the food and the staff.
The house is set in a resort called Frade; a gated community with security guards at the entrance. There are lots of other houses nearby, a stunning private beach and some other local amenities. As we arrived at the guesthouse we couldn't believe our luck; the house was so beautiful, set on the canal with lots of expensive private power boats lined up! There is a huge pool between the house and the canal which was perfect for an early morning swim.
The rooms were spacious and clean, we stayed in the slightly larger suites, one on the first floor and one at the very front of the property overlooking the canal with a huge decking area complete with sun loungers and a hammock :)
I think one of the best things this guesthouse has to offer is the food, we ordered some local fish between 2 of us and it came out in a mini couldron type dish and it was the softest most succulent fish I have ever tasted.
If you want something a little different go and stay at the guesthouse for a few days, it really is a special place.
