After long traveling from Japan to Porto Seguro, we had a wonderful stay at Pousada do Bosque. The place was surrounded by much greens with colourful charming local sculptures and paintings and perfectly peaceful atmosphere. Everyday my husband and I woke up with joy surrounded by greens and flowers. The breakfast was great too.
Located in great area with perfect distance from the square to have a peaceful time at night. The staff were very helpful with good recommendations of restaurants and places to go on the beaches.
We highly recommend this Pousada, and we would love to go back there again.

Pousada do Bosque is very quiet, appr. 500 m. away from the square in Trancoso (unless you are in a room next to the road, so make sure to avoid if you care about quietness). The setting is nice, much green and rooms are reasonable. Bed not too great, but they have good airco and mosquito nets (normal in Trancoso though). Breakfast is regular..Service ok.

Room Tip: If you are looking for excitement, this is not the place. The reception is very quiet, there is almo...

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.
