“Great option away, but still close, from the historic center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2010

A very charming hotel, away from the city, but close to the historic center - no more than 5 minutes by car. The room is simple, but very well decorated and comfortable. The bistrot Voila has a delicious french food and good wine (they offered a dinner one night and it is worth it). The breakfast was excelent - in a varanda with a beaultiful view to a river! We had a great stay and recommend it.

This was a great three-day stay. The welcome dinner and the breakfasts were outstanding. The owners extremely friendly - they picked us up at the bus station and brought us into town every morning. it exceeded our expectations.

We stayed here during our Christmas holidays for three days and enjoyed it very much. SInce Paraty is very crowded this time of year we were lucky to book a room out here. The pousada is located near the river set among lush rainforest. The terrace and French bistro are overlooking the river and the beautiful garden. The rooms are situated around this garden and all have their own patio. We had a great diner at New year's eve, including champagne and foie gras and everything very well prepared by the French chef. This also counts for the delicious breakfast. Both owners are very helpful and know a lot about the region. If we ever go back to Paraty we would definitely book here again!

After staying in Rio de Janeiro and and Ilha Grande this pousada in a beautiful forest along the river was a nice welcome. We had already seen enough beaches so it was nice to see a different environment.

We arrived at the bus station in Paraty where Adriana, one of the owners, awaited us. She gave us a free ride to the pousada, a 10 minute drive from the center.

I won't go in to the rooms and the beautiful view from the terrace because it was mentioned eough in the other reviews.

The first night we had dinner in the hotel. This was really fantastic! Being from europe I've been to french restaurants quite a bit, and this was absolutely as it should be! A very refined boeuf bourgignon and the chocolate mousse was to die for. The red wine may have been a little to cold, but the rest more than made up for it.

The next day Adriana took us to some beautiful waterfalls only 5 minutes from the pousada. She walked us around and showed us the best spots. Again this was free of charge! After that she dropped us off in the center where we strolled thrugh the pittoresk historic center.

Unfortunately we only stayed 2 nights here. So the next day we took off to Sao Paulo. Adriana dropped us at the bus station again. Where we found out that my 6 year old son forgot his neckless in the hotel. We quickly exchanged adressses so Adriana could mail it to us. To our surprise the bus stopped only 2 minutes after it departed. Adriana entered the bus and gave our son his neckless! She managed to drive up and down to the hotel in 15 minutes. Needless to say we were all stunned and touched!

Thanks for a wonderful time!

Pousada Caminho do Ouro is a wonderful place, surrounded by nature, just a few miles from historic center. It´s located near the best waterfalls of Paraty, in the beginning of "Serra da Bocaina".
The owners are very nice, and the food....wonderful!!l
Pedra Branca waterfall is a must-see, 4 miles from the pousada.
