A beautiful pousada in a stunning location, a real gem of a find! A quiet and secluded ambience, perfect for our stay. The rooms were artfully decorated, clean and with strong air con, great for hot and humid days. Unfortunately my husband was ill on arrival but Adriana (co-owner) was extremely helpful and attentive, even making him a home-made remedy...

We travelled to Paraty from Rio by bus, which took us about five hours as the weather was awful. We got a taxi to tthis pousada as it was quite late, it was pouring with rain and we had quite a few heavy luggage. It took the driver a moment to find but as soon as we arrived we were...

Excellent little Posada run by a couple; a Frenchman and a Brazilian.....so you have access to excellent French cuisine (infused in the breakfast) and warm braziilian hospitality. Only few rooms (four I think); Caretakers are multilingual and speak decent English. Very nicely stylish decorated rooms and ambience and beautiful deck overlooking river on the backend of the Posada. Pleasantly surprising...

What a wonderful find! The location was breathtaking, whereby they served amazing morning breakfast along the veranda overlooking the river. The rooms are charming, clean and very comfortable. We sensed the owners love what they do as all the little details made our stay most delightful. We hope to return.

If you're looking for a nice and pleasant stay in Paraty, the Pousada Caminho de Ouro offers exactly what you need. Clean and cozy room, amazing breakfast, and a very gentle staff. It's not in a posh area of Paraty, so if location is a "must" for you, please choose another b&b in the city center. This one is located...

Certainly the greatest discovery of our trip to Brazil. My friends and I booked 3 rooms right after Christmas and wanted a change from the classic near beach accomodations to something a bit more special or exclusive. We opted for Caminho do Ouro as it seemed more in touch with the local culture and located just outside central Paraty which...

We choose this B&B because of the great tripadvisor ratings. Maybe that's why we were a little disappointed. Positive points The accommodation was nice, if a little basic.

“It's not essential but definitely much more convenient to have your own car to get into town and the local attractions. The boat trips from Paraty are touristy but actually really nice and fun, take you to some great beaches. Paraty town is a nightmare if you have a baby buggy. The cobbles are enormous. The waterfalls up the road are worth a visit.”
