Fodor's Expert Review Pousada Don Giovanni

Linha Amadeo, Km 12, Bento Gonçalves, Rio Grande do Sul, 95700-000, Brazil

Remote and rustic, this eight-room guesthouse is an old-world gem in a whitewashed 1930s building adjacent to the Don Giovanni winery. A good base from which to explore the wine region, or simply soak up the scenery, the accommodations here are simple, spacious, and comfortable, with faded furniture and stunning views, though the minimal service (with no staff on-site for parts of the day and in the evening) can make even the most basic requests a logistical challenge. To eat out, there are limited options within driving distance, though you can book ahead to dine in the pousada restaurant, with a set menu ($$$$)—made with homegrown produce—served in an atmospheric basement dining room.
