#7 of 49 hotels in Paraty
Located in an old restored "sobrado" (two story house) where its architectural style and the preservation of original materials, including stonewalls, wooden furniture and many wooden details stand out. Some of the woods come from species now extinct. The Pousada is located in the historical center next to the Santa Rita Church, with panoramically view of the bay of Paraty and the Bocaina Mountains. It has a secret view of the roofs of the magical town. This is the perfect place for those who come to Paraty looking to unite with nature. Paraty is the most charming historical port town in the country, its geographical location and natural aspects captivate the tourist and inspire painters and photographers.

Our stay here was amazing. First, they followed all covid protocols and ensured we were safe at all time. Our room was always clean and we were never without necessities. Everything from clean towels to working WiFi, was perfect. In addition, the staff was incredibly helpful, assisting us with reservations for sailing, dinner, tours, etc. The pousada itself is beautiful, with plenty of art and decoration. The breakfast was always nice. The location also means that we were close to all the activities we wanted to do without having spend too much time walking.

Hotel's Favorite
Very special Guest House in a stunning location in Paraty. Unique rooms, spotlessly clean, delicious breakfasts and amazing cocktails to enjoy by the little plunge pool which is a fabulous spot to unwind after a hot day in Paraty. Paulo & Marineth greeted us warmly after a long journey and did so much to ensure a Paulo & Marineth greeted us warmly after a long journey and did everything to ensure a relaxing stay. Many thanks to you both.Yarra the Host/Owner arranged a super private boat trip for us to the gorgeous beaches near to paraty. Everything about our stay was superb, I own a Guest House myself in the UK so my standards are high. This is possibly one of the loveliest Guest Houses i have ever had the pleasure to stay. I look forward to returning Arte Urquijo and to Paraty. Book direct with Arte Urquijo for best service and information. Many thanks to you all for a super stay.

One of the best pousadas I ever stayed. The owner was lovely, very helpful, not to mention an amazing artist. The staff was so friendly, the breakfast was a delight. Every morning I woke up exited for breakfast. The place was very romantic and detailed oriented. It smells amazing when you walk into your room, very clean. Super close to the boats and located in the quiet area inside of the historical center. Super duper recommend this pousada.
