Vivenda was the last stop of a 2 week vacation to the Pantanal and Chapada dos Guimaraes and we could not possibly have picked a better spot for our final days. Our Bungalow was immaculate, beautifully decorated, and very private. Obviously, great attention to detail has been paid to both the rooms as well as the beautiful grounds and generous... More

Wow, what a superb little part of the world. Vivenda is not the top notch accommodation in Paraty for nothing. As soon as we arrived, we were already dreading to leave. Each villa gives you sufficient privacy and a taste of unmatched relaxation. It's easily one of the best properties we stayed I'm during our month-long trip to South America.... More

Stayed at Vivenda for 9 nights. It is an excellent B&B, owned by John, an English expat from York. He has two ‘bungalows’ in his garden and a third bedroom and bathroom attached to his house. We stayed in one of the bungalows and loved it. Spotlessly clean, adjacent to a pretty, reasonable sized pool, with a small garden. His... More

THE GUEST HOUSE Vivenda is situated in a quiet redidential neighbourhood and only a 10-15 munute walk along the riverside to the old town, or 5 minutes by car.

Our guest house is small and exclusive with only 2 double bungalows and a double suite, each facing the swimmimng pool and surrounded by a lush tropical garden,allowing the maximum in comfort and privacy.
