This sprawling mid-18th-century fazenda (ranch) just outside town has a palm-lined drive, a pond, tennis courts and outdoor pavilions. Rooms are immense, with fireplaces, solar hot water and antique furniture. The chef here is renowned for his leitão à pururuca (roast suckling pig).
Set in a beautiful park with a lake, this charming guest house is 900 ft (300 metres) from Tiradentes historical centre. There is a pool.
Some units have a view of the lake.
This is one of the venues for the Tiradentes Gastronomy Festival.
