“A gem in Trancoso”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Beautiful Pousada - the rooms are very clean, the staff will do their best to help despite their limited English, the pool is such a welcome relief from the heat when you haven't got the energy to visit the beach.
The breakfast was nice - note, you can order eggs how you like them. We weren't told this and only realised on the last day when others were ordering them.
It's not far from the Quadrado or the beach.
We also enjoyed a rare early night watching DVD's from their collection in our room which was lovely and relaxing.

My friends and I had a great and relaxing time in Trancoso. It's a comfortable lodge, very well located (walking distance from "Quadrado" - the main square) with friendly staffs! We super recommended Pousada do Bosque! Hope to visit this place again soon :)

Very nice and spaceous apartments, in a very jungle-like place. Very clean and organised, we really liked the reception area where you can chill out, use the free wi-fi and have breakfast - very good by the way.
Highly recommended.

My girlfriend and I stayed there for a couple of nights and loved the place. The setting is very charming with a lot of greenery around and a good pool for a quick dive. The rooms are clean, spacious and charming. The breakfast is very good, with a wide selection of fruits, cakes and breads. The location is also a high point, it is very close to the "quadrado" where all the restaurants are, and just a short walk to the beach. We had rented a car but we only used it to arrive from the airport.

Room Tip: Each room is unique so make sure you check the photos at their website. All of them seemed quite nic...

We loved Pousada Do Bosque. Stayed 4 nights in Feb. Very warm and friendly, family run, nice clean rooms and great breakfast - as was the case everywhere we stayed in Brazil. They have a nice pool - although we found we didn't make use of it, spending most of the time in Transcoso and on the beach. Pousada Do Bosque is located slightly off the main square of Transcoso but is walking distance down the hill to the beach. The property also has beautiful gardens - I spotted a 3 toed sloth in the tree outside our room before breakfast - what a start to the day. Would definately stay there again.
Note that English is not widely spoken in Brazil, nor Spanish unless you are in the South. This family run Pousada is no exception, although we were fortunate that Ananda was home at the time we stayed and very helpful. Nevertheless, I quite enjoyed the lack of English - it's amazing and fun how well we can communicate regardless.

We had wonderful days at the inn. Besides good location (for both beach and to the square) could enjoy peace and quiet. The hostel comprises a rich breakfast and accommodations are charming, clean and looking like new. Room service very good
