This lovely oasis provides a tasteful and perfectly located environment to explore Paraty. The bungalows which are set around a central pool in a tropical garden are beautifully decorated and all well equipped. But perhaps the most...

I stayed here from 5th - 10th March in the suite room, attached to the main house. This was my first trip to Brazil and I was flying solo so was a bit nervous but keen to make the most of it - Vivenda, and John, absolutely helped me to do that in Paraty. This place is BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, paradise....

The property is situated outside the main town in a residential area. The rooms are spacious and clean in single story buildings surround a swimming pool and sundeck in a beautiful garden. The proprietor speaks excellent English and the two maids who serve breakfast speak passable English.

I have been to many places in Brazil, I have stayed in 5 star hotels, I have been a guest in many of the famous better pousadas in Brazil but none of them come close to Vivenda Paraty. John's place is marvelous!! Comfort, decoration, host, ambience are more than perfect. If you are considering going to Paraty, look no further...

We stayed at Pousada Vivenda in Paraty for three nights and we were warmly welcomed by John. The gardens and pool are stunning with a great deal of attention paid to ensuring a colourful, lush garden. The pool is the perfect temperature which is essential after a day of walking around the old town. We had the suite which is...

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...

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.

Each room is light,comfortable and decorated with examples of local Brazilian crafts and folk art. the result is a rustic-chic style with exuberant tropical touches. To help you feel even more at home we have provided you with a collection of over 350 DVD'S to choose from as well as paperbacks, art books on Paraty and magazines to read while lounging on your veranda or by the pool. there is also free WiFi access.
