“This quiet, calm, and well-appointed hotel gives off the air of a ‘secret retreat’, with stunning trees and bougainvillea that really add to the feeling of seclusion. The suites and apartments are decorated with bold colours, book-themed artworks, polished wooden furniture, and bright cushions and throws, and chances are you won’t want to leave!”
A renovated colonial townhouse in the heart of the historic UNESCO-listed town of Paraty on the Costa Verde, Pousada Literaria is a charming guesthouse that reflects the town’s literary spirit.
The suites and apartments are decorated with bold colours, book-themed artworks, polished wooden furniture, and bright cushions and throws, giving them a welcoming feel. There are some villas that are perfect for families and include access to the hotel’s facilities including the swimming pool, Poesia Spa, and an intimate house at Mamangua.
Breakfast is served all day, either in the Pousada or adjoining Bookstore, while the Quintal des Letras restaurant serves local, seasonal produce.
Spend your days wandering the cobblestone streets of the historic centre of Paraty, exploring the coast by boat, taking a culinary cruise to the Saco do Mamangua, or learning about the region’s varied birdlife. Then retire to a cosy corner and curl up for the evening.
