Angra dos Reis advice please

We need to stay somewhere on 27th and 28th December before going to Rio for New Year. We thought Angra dos Reis would be a good place but everything is pretty booked. Anyone got any suggestions how to find something or should we just chance it? We'll have a car so if necessary could go as far as Parati but it seems a long way for just 2 nights. Anyone out there with local knowledge who can help?

Everything near the beach is most likely booked and very expensive for New Year.

An option would be to stay somewhere into mainland at Dutra road and go to Angra for the day. On the 29th an excelent choice would be go to Rio taking the Rio-Santos, which borders de coastline.

Of course you will drive much more but it'll be cheaper and easily feasible.

Have you checked out the hotels/pousadas in and around Petropolis - a one hour drive from Rio... or Niteroi just over the bridge from Rio?

thanks everyone for the advice - called up a few places and found what sounds like a reasonable Pousada. So we're fixed!
