The couple that runs this pousada are two wonderful human beings. I cannot recommend them any more highly. Unfortunately, while we were staying with them my companion fell and broke his hip (we didn't realize it at the time). When bad things happen, you find out what people are really like and we experienced the kindness of the Brazilian people firsthand. Owners Adriana and Christophe, in particular, were ACTIVELY HELPFUL. She went and picked up a prescription. She sent emails and made phone calls to our next two hotels because we didn't know what was going to happen. She advised me about the best way to deal with TAM airlines and the flight we missed and the flight we had to purchase. She took me to a pharmacy that sold crutches and advised me to buy them when I didn't have a clue what was going on (the orthopedist said "no break") and it was the best thing I did. Christophe cooked us meals when his kitchen would have normally been closed. He picked up my friend and carried him in to his room when we arrived by taxi from the local hospital. These two people were my friends when I needed a friend. It was a sad experience that my friend was hurt, but a wonderful experience at the same time because of the owners of this pousada.
The pousada is not located in the heart of Paraty, but it is also near a very cool place called Murycana and some great trails. There is bus/van service into town and Adriana drove us too.
