“Perfect antidote to stress of Rio”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

When city life gets to be too much, do like the emperor did and go to Petrópolis so you can cool off in the mountains and luxuriate in the comforts and delights. Paul and Nazareth are splendid, consummate hosts.

Reviewed 29 December 2011

4 couples drove up to vist with the hosts, Paul & Nazareth for a weekend last February. The theme was vegetarian cooking and some of us were treated to comprehensive teaching by Nazareth on cuisine from the state of Minas Gerais. The rest of us relaxed in the sun, in the pool, on the chaise longues sharing a word, a drink and a laugh. Paul took us all to the local gardens to buy the dinner's ingredients.

The house is new, built into the mountain side in a dramatic setting. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable, though no AC and little opportiunity for a cross draft.

Bit pricey, but worth it

Room Tip: The room at the end has a cross draft!

After visiting the busy city of Rio, this was the complete opposite! If you are looking for a very special and personal welcome, a green and relaxing environment and a luxurious house, this is the place to be! Even though it rained during our stay, we could´ve stayed longer because we loved the conversations with Paul and Nazareth, the amazing food, the sauna and pool and all the relaxing time for ourselves! We highly recommend this place.

A little piece of heaven!

Solar Ponte Verde....an amazing house perched on a hill in the beautiful mountain region of Araras...We picked this pousada based on reviews on tripadvisor and Hidden Pousadas. We were looking for a hideway in the hills..
We were a little overwhelmed at first by Paul's and Nazareth's hospitality and had to get used to being looked after as if we were long lost and then found friends of the family. It didn't take long though and we soon looked forward to sharing meals and conversation with the two lovely hosts. The house is beautiful, Paul and Nazareth went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible and if Nazareth ever brings out a cookbook, I will be first in line to buy it. Highly recommended!

This is a awsome place! Nazareth and Paul are lovely hosts and make your feel like family! Nazareth is a very good vegetarian cook! Their home is a amazing place, hidden in the mountain Park of Araras. It has a very good spiritual atmosphere.....and beautiful facilities. You will enjoy it very much. The place is a good start to discover the area like Petropolis,, Itaipava (big Luis Salvador store) and a lovely veg. market. And also Tiradentes which is a MUST. Paul can advise you!
Our son who is 22 yrs and Machteld his girlfriend were also very impressed! We watched a lovely dvd and Lars and Joh n played a game of chess......(Paul can also advise you on this!! ha,ha,ha,) Thanks again for a warm place to stay! We will be back!!

This quaint and charming inn is nestled in the mountains near Petropolis, Brazil's City of Emperors. The ambiance and decor is lovely and the hosts are very friendly. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. There is a wonderful herb garden and excellent organic cuisine, particularly brick oven pizza. Each room is finely decorated to make the guests feel at home.

Nazareth and Paul have created a beautiful, comfortable home in the heart of Brazil, which they delight in sharing with their guests. The food is divine and the rooms hugely spacious and comfortable. A must-do is to float on your back in the gorgeous infinity pool, watching the handspan-sized butterflies float in and around the trees around you!
Another must-do is to walk the Labyrinth - most refreshing to the thought processes!
It is hard to believe that Solar da Ponte Verde is only about an hour's drive away from the city of Rio de Janeiro - but so convenient if your stay is part of a larger itinerary. The smaller town of Petropolis is much nearer and handy for the post office etc; and there are also some fantastic walks through the nearby valley (full of bromeliads, more butterflies and birds). It's the sort of place where you wish you had booked a much longer stay :)
