“Sweet place close to the heart of Paraty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

We ended up staying here due to a mix up with our booking at Pousada Acquarela (see separate review), but were glad we did. We had a family room, with a double bed and two single beds, and an en suite shower room. There was free wifi in the lounge and upstairs dining room. There was also a huge TV in the lounge, with some English-language channels. Everywhere was clean and the beds were comfortable.

Breakfast was a more than ample buffet of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, ham, cheese, cake, bread, jam, honey, cereals, good coffee... All very tasty and probably one of the best breakfasts we had in South America.

The host Elizabeth was welcoming and spoke English. She recommended the place across the street (Tempera Brasiliero) for lunch and it was fab. She was also kind enough to order pizza for delivery one evening! The location of the pousada is very central, just one street away from the main drag, just above the start of the cobbled area, so great for exploring the old cobbled part of town but also for accessing grocery stores and the post office, for example.

Whilst we didn't choose this pousada, we loved staying there and would consider staying again if we ever return to Paraty.
