Pousada Literária Review

A totally renovated colonial mansion is the setting for this timelessly chic luxury guesthouse that celebrates the literary spirit of Paraty. The spacious rooms, decorated with book-themed artworks have tasteful, brightly colored contemporary fixtures, but what really makes a stay here special is the large heated pool in the courtyard. The water's ever-pleasant temperature encourages early-evening dips—relaxing poolside with a cocktail is the perfect way to dry off. Breakfast can be enjoyed at any time of day, and is served at the pool's edge. The staff is attentive, and the many sights, restaurants, and bars of Paraty's historic center are right at the doorstep. Book well in advance if you want to stay here during the town's famous literary festival, held in July.
