Amy Adejokun Section editor

Unquestionably one of the most beautiful pousadas in Paraty, in the heart of the magnificent historic centre, pousada Marquesa invites the host to rest and meditate in a charming and authentic environment. The gardens are spacious and green, which is rare in the old city. The absolute quiet is to be appreciated.

    Location 8.08 /10

    In the heart of the Paraty historic centre, 174 miles south of Rio, a 4-hour drive. The international airport is 170 miles away. You should anticipate 4 1/2 hours by car. No traffic jams but BR 101, the only highway to Paraty, is rather winding. In clear weather, the panoramic view over the strings of islands and islets, below the green Bocaina mountains is, in certain areas, unrestricted.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    28 rooms including 6 apartments and one suite are scattered among the buildings surrounding the gardens. Blue and dark green painted panelling contrast with the whitewashed walls. The furniture is rustic wood over a more recent wooden floor. It is a pity that lighting is rather weak. All rooms are spacious (215 square feet in average) and include a TV sitting on a desk, a free safe, individual air conditioning, a full bar-refrigerator, a bathroom with shower, welcome toiletries, and a hair dryer. The toilets are in the bathroom.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Open in 1989, pousada Marquesa is a charming, authentic colonial house, offering a quiet and pleasant stay. Far, very far from Rio's high-class hotels and resorts. The small lobby opens on the right with a counter made of exposed stone. The floor displays original tiles slowly made shiny by time; the dark woods of the antique furniture add to a beautiful decor. Along the corridors, portraits, art objects, and paintings decorate the walls. These corridors lead to the green gardens surrounded with gorgeous sculpted wood and old stone arches, a pretty bar decorated with more or less antique items (old radios, a shotgun, etc.) and the restaurant. A comfortable television room is available nearby. In the centre, a swimming pool with deckchairs and parasols invites to napping or resting...

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    A long, narrow restaurant with exposed stone, wooden furniture, white tablecloths and a collection of antique clocks decorating white walls. The setting is well-done. Only breakfast is served. Local and international gastronomy. You will love the homemade fruit juice and pastries.

    To know

    The hotel is located at a short walk from a gorgeous marina overlooking the Bocaina mountains which shelters a protected natural forest. Nearby, numerous fine art boutiques, restaurants and retailers are open during the day. A great opportunity to bring home nice souvenirs. Praia do Pontal, the beach of Paraty, is located at a few miles from the hotels of the historic centre. You can access the beach by foot or, better, on a bicycle.
