Fodor's Expert Review Quinta das Videiras

Rua Afonso Luiz Borba 113 , Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, 88062-040, Brazil

The only boutique hotel on the island, Quinta das Videiras has tastefully adorned rooms with antique-style furnishings, from stained-glass windows to porcelain doorknobs and an abundance of Portuguese tiles. The only original feature here is the grape vines, which make a nice, shady spot for an alfresco breakfast. Don’t expect much of a view; the rooms at the back overlook a supermarket loading bay. For a treat, the loft suite has a large roof terrace and plunge pool. Shops, bars, and restaurants are within easy reach on foot, though the nearest beach is a 3-km (2-mile) hike.

PROS

  • packed with characterful details
  • solar-heated tiled swimming pool
  • close to shops and restaurants

CONS

  • some rooms have poor views
  • nearest beach 3 km (2 miles) away
