“Peaceful and romantic mountain retreat”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Just had our second wonderful stay at MauaBrasil. This beautiful pousada is 3 hours from Rio up in the mountains near Visconde de Maua. The chalets are great...very comfortable beds with expensive linens, a firplace (which you need at least during the winter months), a jacuzzi, shower with good pressure, minibar, nice little balcony from which to look at the amazing views. Breakfast is included and is very good. We ate at the hotel restaurant both nights because they make an excellent fondue. The temperatures in July can get below 5 C so it is a very nice change in tropical Brazil to go up here and relax in your cozy cabin after a day of hikes, riding, reading and relaxing. We did a fun 2 hour trail ride in the most beautiful countryside. Highly-recommend this place for a romantic get-away from Sao Paulo or Rio.

Room Tip: I can only vouch for chalets 3 and 9 which were both great.

The best pousada / hotel in Visconde de Maua according to guia 4 rodas.

Wonderful view from every independant chalet, very large room. Wonderful bed and linen. Very nice room design, some with a round jacuzzi in the middle of the room, by the fireplace, in front of large windows with a very nice view and with a glass roof to see the stars at night... They settle a very nice romantic atmosphere with candles and sparkling wine...

Wonderful staff. Complimentary glass of sparkling wine on arrival and during the morning brunch. Best breakfast in our life, served at the table with: yogurt from the farm, hot plate, cold cuts and breads, and a desert. tea, coffee, juice, sparkling wine included. superb and serves as a lunch.

Nice outside ofuro. Nice owner who likes horses. You can ride with him for a couple of hours in the region. Very nice.

Not cheap, but excellent value. Everything is first class. And so far from the the big cities...
