Set in a quiet corner of the serene historic center of Paraty, this small hotel edges onto the pier and is truly a picture postcard. Overlooking it are the bay, the mountains and the dome of the evocative St Rita’s church. The four poster beds enjoy quality Egyptian linens.
Framed by the lush slopes of the Costa Verde, this is a colonial town with a UNESCO-endorsed historic centre. Cars have been banned in the centre, making it a delight to walk around and admire the modernist architecture. Head to the crystal waters and the 65 islands that surround the town.
