“Enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

We are 3 couples who stayed at Via Maria in April 2014. Maria loves what she does. And she also loves to cook. Her food was delicious. It is always great to be with people who have a passion for what they do. The restaurant was nicely decorated, well-cared for and the food was delicious. I liked that Maria would ask us how we enjoyed her meal after dinner.

She also recommended a guide called Cris to us. Cris was attentive, flexible and fun to be with. She had alot of knowledge about the Mata Atlantica. And like Maria, she loves waht she does. It is the people who make it. And Maria and Cris are totally in the right career. We felt really cared for.

What more can we say but thank you for making our time in Cananeia such a special time. Travelling with friends who have stayed many times with Maria and Marcio our time at Via Maria's was all they had talked about and more. Not only a warm welcome, but wonderful food and hospitality. The individually themed rooms are very comfortable and clean. Maria is the most wonderful cook and Marcio the best waiter you could ask for. Maria organised a guide for the day to take us out on a speedboat to the rainforest and see the stunning views of the South Atlantic. A day to remember, a visit to paradise. Both Maria and Marcio speak excellent English so no worries for those whose Portuguese is like mine, non existent. Enjoy chilling out, a dip in the pool or relax outside in the sun. Can't wait for another visit.

We found this pousada through Trip Advisor and gave it a try for a Week End. This was the best thing we had done for months!!!! And we just couldn't help to come back! This place kept the real spirit of pousada: a family which offers room to rent.
Maria and Marcio, the owners, speak good English, which may ease the stay for those who can't speak good Portuguese. While Maria will be busy in the kitchen preparing tasteful dishes, Marcio will be available to give you tips about what to do in the region while he prepares a caipirinha for you (or teach you how to make one)...
Ask him to try about his special Schnapps made with leaves of a local tree! And later, there is a good chance that he'll play some piano jazz for your dessert (try Maria's crème brulée!).
The bedrooms are simple and very clean - each has its own decoration theme. You may want to chill out in the hammock dedicated to each room... or just enjoy the swimming pool, always clean and great for a refresh.
