We spent 5 nights at Pousada Som do Mar (Dec 24-29). It is a family run pousada right by the beach. If being by the beach is important for you, this is a perfect location as it is right by the most popular beaches in Trancoso. It is a 15-minute walk (or 5-minute moto-taxi or regular taxi ride) away from Quadrado. Some nights we walked and some nights we took the taxi. Adrian, the owner, moved from Argentina years ago and made Trancoso his home. He's a very nice and helpful person and he made everything possible to make us feel comfortable. English in Trancoso is a huge problem so Adrian's hints and tips were a big help. The pousada is clean, it has A/C, the breakfast is nice (typical Brazilian breakfast with eggs, tapioca crepes, cakes, fruits, cheese, ham, fresh juices and coffee). We had a very pleasant stay and we highly recommend Adrian's pousada.

I can't say enough good things about Trancoso and our "hotel" and host at Pousada Som do Mar, Adrian. The Quadrado, for your nightlife, is a short drive/cab ride away - or brisk walk and has all the glamour and sophistication you you'd expect in a European capital city, wrapped up in a small beach village atmosphere. The pretty people of Brazil are all vacationing here along with many Europeans and maybe one or two Americans. Pousada Som do Mar is just a 5 minute walk to the beach and perfectly situated near crowded beach bars and exclusive beach clubs with long stretches of empty beach. The Pousada itself is small with just 8 rooms and a larger residence for a family or group of friends with a small pool. Rooms are simple and very clean with everything you'd need for a beach vacation including free Wi-Fi and breakfast. Adrian is the the "host with the most" and has an excellent and friendly staff. Ask him any questions about the town or the surrounding area and he'll have the answer for you. We just love it there and found a true gem of a destination in Trancoso.

Som do mar is a very good pousada if you wanna stay close to the beach. less than 100 mt from praia dos nativos, there is a little swimming pool surrounded by trees and flowers. Rooms are very clean and simple but you have all you need, in the suite also a fridge where you can find cold water. Adriano is fantastic: he helps you in every moment, giving good advices and suggesting the best places to eat, to stay on the beach. He has any kind of tips and helps you also with airport transfer. Consider that it is 15 minutes walking from the Quadrado so you need a taxi to reach this area (walking during the night it is not so comfortable, very dark and lots of dust!). Taxi are 25 reais one way. What we like the most is the SOM DO MAR: you were able to listen to this fantastic sound also in the night, so amazing!

Ciao Monia, We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you appreciated our advice as, I am sure, it can be a lot of help to get to know better Trancoso, and all the marvels it has to offer. Next time we meet in Italy!

Just returned from a fantastic week in Trancoso where we stayed at Pousada Som do Mar. The hotel is located less than a 5 minute walk to one of the prettiest beaches in Brazil, Praia dos Nativos. Rooms are simple but super-clean with free wi-fi and breakfast. Adriano the owner couldn't be nicer (along with his staff) and he's very knowledgeable about local activities and/or the surrounding area. The hotel is about a short drive or brisk 15 minute walk from the Quadrado where all the restaurants, bars and shops are located. All around great experience.

Our best NYE ever also thanks to Pousada's owner Adriano and his family who took care of us during our 1 week stay in Trancoso! 50mt from the beautiful beach and 15 min walk to the Quadrado, great breakfast and simple but super-clean rooms. The best is the hammock hanging in front of every room, this was real relax.
